Child Find Notice
This notice is to inform parents that Webbers Falls Public Schools is maintaining an ongoing Child Find search to locate, identify and evaluate any child age 3-21 with an established or suspected disability. Child Find efforts include all individuals age 3-21 not enrolled in school, as well as those who attend public and private schools, Head Start, state institutions, and other child care or treatment facilities. Children not of school age must reside in the boundaries of Webbers Falls Public Schools to be included in the Child Find efforts.
Webbers Falls Public Schools has established and maintains a comprehensive screening and multidisciplinary referral, evaluation, and eligibility process for the identification of children with suspected disabilities. The district’s general education interventions will not delay the initial evaluation for special education services of a student suspected of having a disability. Child Find activities contain a mandate for public awareness of contact, location and established screening procedures. Information regarding evaluation procedures is available at no cost to parent/guardian upon request by contacting Webbers Falls Public Schools, Special Services Director 200 S. Stand Waite Blvd. Webbers Falls, Ok 74470., or by phone at 918-464-2580.
As mandated by the Oklahoma State Department of Education, Webbers Falls Public Schools is required to fully inform parents that personally identifiable information is maintained on all children who are referred and evaluated under the provisions of Child Find.
The types of information sought may include but are not limited to: Parent concerns, developmental, adaptive behavior, social-cultural, health/medical, vision, hearing, motor, perceptual/processing, behavior, psychological, vocational and information gained through observations in the classroom or other environments.
It is the responsibility of Webbers Falls Public Schools to inform parents/guardians of their rights under the Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
