Identification of Exceptional Children
Pupil services staff assist in the identification and evaluation of children thought to be exceptional. A team of district personnel including the counselor, principal, teachers, nurse, and school psychologist work with parents in the evaluation process.
If a parent suspects that their child might be exceptional they should contact the counselor. Exceptional children have many rights to assure prompt evaluation and program development. The counselor will advise you on how to access those services. If special placement is recommended, the parent is assured of due process at all steps.
Many special programs are provided by CV, the Intermediate Unit and other districts. Regardless of the source of service or program, the identification and evaluation process is coordinated by the pupil service staff; placement and actual program is provided by the Supervisor of Special Education.
