Child Find

Child find is the process of locating and evaluating children, ages 3-21, who may have disabilities and may be eligible for special education and related services. Both state and local education agencies have a responsibility under federal and state law to conduct child find so that children who need special services have the opportunity to receive those services. Parents, teachers, public and private agency employees and concerned citizens are encouraged to help the Northridge Local School District locate children who may have disabilities and who may be eligible for special education and related services. If you are aware of a child who may have special needs, please notify Michelle McJessy, Director of Special Education at (740) 967-6631, Ext. 312, mmcjessy@northridgevikings.org  or her Administrative Assistant, Jamie Bingham, at 740-967-6631, Ext. 313 or jbingham@northridgevikings.org
