Special Education and Section 504 Childfind Notice


SPECIAL EDUCATION AND SECTION 504 CHILDFIND NOTICE

The Hermitage School District has a duty to locate, evaluate and identify any child residing in the District who qualifies for Special Education services or any child attending the public schools who may require Section 504 accommodations or services. 

Children eligible for special education include those children with disabilities who have autism, deaf-blindness, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, specific learning disability, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury, visual impairment, or intellectual disability and who, because of such an impairment, need special education services. 

Children eligible for Section 504 accommodations or services include those children who have a physical or mental impairment  that substantially limits a major life activity.

If you suspect your child has a disability and may need special education services or 504 accommodations, or if you would like additional information, please contact your child's teacher or the guidance counselor at each school, or call the District's Special Education Director, Rhonda Daniel, at (870) 463-2246.
