CHILD IDENTIFICATION PROCEDURES (Child Find)

As a member of the Educational Service District 112 Special Education ESA, Dayton School District conducts childfind activities for the purpose of locating, evaluating, and identifying individuals with a suspected disability who are residing within the district boundaries, whether or not they are enrolled in the public school system. Childfind activities apply to individuals birth through 21 years who are not currently receiving special education and related services. If your family is living in a temporary situation, you may contact the district where you are staying to attend a screening. Parents having concerns about their child's health, hearing, intellectual functioning, language, learning, movement, serious behavioral needs, speech, or vision can contact the principal in their child's school or contact the Educational Service District 112 at 800-233-0067
