Child Find and Proportionate Share Notice
(Identification and Services for Students with Disabilities Ages 3-21)
Attention: Parents of students who are educated at home or in private school settings
Attention: Private School Providers in Ware County
Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, the Ware County School System implements a comprehensive Child Find system to assure that all children who are in need of early intervention or special education services are located, identified, and referred. The Child Find network assists in identifying and providing appropriate educational help to disabled children. If you suspect your child, ages 3 -21, may be a child with a disability, you are encouraged to contact the Special Education Office of the Ware County School System at 912-287-2306. Personnel can support you in exploring what services may be available.
Child Find also extends to children who are parentally placed in private and home schools. Ware County School System personnel are available to meet with representatives from private and home schools to inform them of the district’s Child Find procedures and services that may be available under the proportionate share of federal special education funds.
A meeting to discuss the availability of services for students with disabilities or who are suspected of having a disability will be held at the following time and location:
Monday, June 24th
Ware County Board of Education, Room 202
