Putnam City Schools is responsible for establishing and implementing an ongoing Child Find system to locate, identify, and evaluate students suspected of having a disability, ages 3 through 21 years, who may need special education, regardless of the severity of the disability.
If through Child Find activities, a student is identified as possibly having a disability and needing special education services, parents may be asked for their consent to evaluate their child. Special education referrals for evaluation may be made for a variety of reasons, including but not limited to academic and/or behavioral concerns.
If you have, or know of, any child from preschool to age 21 who is not currently enrolled in a special education program and you suspect they have a disability, please contact the school psychologist at your child’s school- Contact Page.
Early identification of children with significant developmental delays begins in the public schools at the age of 3. If you have concerns about your preschooler’s development, contact Amber Zumwalt, Putnam City Special Services, 495-3770.
