Project Child Find
The Special Services Department of the Jefferson Township School District, in compliance with Project Child Find, conducts evaluations, if warranted, for those who have learning problems in the areas of cognition, communication, social/emotional and motor functioning. The evaluations are available to preschool children aged 3-5, to school aged children 6-21, to highly mobile students such as migrant and homeless students, and to children and/or adult students who may have a disability although they are advancing from grade to grade.
Children or adult students who are found eligible for special education and related services are entitled to a free and appropriate special education program.
