ChildFind Clinic

Public Notice


The Shaker Regional School District seeks to locate and identify all children who may have an educational disability. Any person may refer for evaluation of a child under the age 21 for reasons including, but not limited to, the following:

1. Failing to pass a hearing or vision screening
2. Unsatisfactory performance on group achievement or accountability measures
3. Receiving multiple academic or behavioral warnings
4. Repeatedly failing one or more subject


The child find requirements of the district also apply to highly mobile children, homeless children, and children who are suspected of having an educational disability even though they are advancing from grade to grade. Child Find also includes those children in grades K-12 who attend approved, non-public private schools within the geographic boundaries of the Shaker Regional School District, regardless of where they reside.


Referrals may be initiated in a variety of ways. The Director of Student Services may be contacted at 267-9222. For children who attend the Shaker Regional Schools, building principals or classroom teachers may be contacted by anyone wishing to initiate a referral for special services. Students in grades K-12 who attend private schools outside the geographical boundaries of Belmont and Canterbury should contact the district in which the private school is located in order to make a referral for evaluation.
