HUDSON SCHOOL DISTRICT: 2009 NOTICE OF CHILD FIND ACTIVITY
The Hudson School District is required to locate, identify, and evaluate all children, with disabilities, including children with disabilities attending private schools in the school district, and homeless children. The process of locating, identifying, and evaluating children with disabilities is known as Child Find. This School District conducts the following Child Find activities each year; the School District has a special education screening program to locate and screen all children with suspected disabilities who are residents of the District and who have not graduated from high school. Upon request, the School District will screen any resident child who has not graduated from high school to determine whether a special education referral is appropriate. Annually the District conducts developmental screenings of preschool children ages 3 – 4 years. Parents/guardians are asked to complete a child development questionnaire. School District personnel review completed questionnaires and determine if a child needs additional screening by school personnel. Parents/guardians are notified as to whether or not additional screening is needed and, if needed, a screening appointment is made. Upon additional screening, if school personnel suspect a child may have a disability and need for special education, they refer the child to a School District evaluation team. Interested parents/guardians are asked to call the District’s Student Services Director Cory McIntyre at 715-377-3703, or write him at 644 Brakke Drive, Hudson, WI 54016.
