Child Find and Special Education

The Child Find provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) require the school district to identify all students with suspected disabilities who might benefit from special education services. 

Parents and guardians are encouraged to contact their child’s school counselor or principal if they have questions about special education or if they would like to request an evaluation.

BISD School Board Policy 2161 and Procedure 2161 outline the district’s policy on Child Find and Special Education. BISD is required to provide annual notice of its Child Find Policy.
