Child Find is the process of identifying, locating and evaluating all children from age three to twenty-one who may have a disability and be in need of special education and related services, regardless of the severity of the disability. The district seeks to identify, through child find, all children in The Academy for Urban Scholars who are enrolled at the school, including those who are homeless or wards of the state who may be in need of special education and related services.
