Special Education Program


Special Education process

CHILD FIND  Screenings are provided free to families and available to all children, including highly mobile children, migrant children, homeless children, and children who are wards of the state. Areas screened are: communication, motor, cognitive, social and self-help. After a screening is completed a formal assessment may be recommended to determine eligibility for services in one or more of the developmental areas. Early identification can make a difference in a child's future school success.

CHILD IDENTIFICATION PROCEDURES (Child Find, ages birth through 21)
As a member of the Educational Service District 112 Special Education ESA, Orondo School District conducts childfind activities for the purpose of locating, evaluating, and identifying individuals with a suspected disability who are residing within district boundaries, whether or not they are enrolled in the public school system.
