Child Find

  • Athens City Schools ensures that all children residing within our jurisdiction, birth to twenty-one, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who need special education and related services, are identified, located and evaluated. 

    Child Find applies to children who attend private schools within Athens City Schools jurisdiction, highly mobile children with disabilities (i.e. migrant and homeless children), and children who are suspected of having a disability and are in need of special education even though they are advancing from grade to grade. 

    If you know of a child, 3 yrs. and older, who may be in need of special education services call: (256) 233-6600

    For children, birth-2 yrs., please contact Early Intervention Services of Alabama: 1-800-543-3098. Spanish-speaking families may call (1-866-450-2838). Please have child/parent information (child’s name, date of birth, address, phone numbers, etc.) available.
