Keystone Local School District is committed to providing all students with opportunities to learn and resources to aid in the learning process. The goal of the special education office is to identify students with disabilities and provide the most effective educational approach for each student's individual learning. Child Find (3301-51-03) is a rule which requires school districts to locate, evaluate and identify all students with suspected disabilities living within the Keystone Local School district. A "child with a disability" is defined as a student having a cognitive disability (mental retardation), a hearing impairment (including deafness), a speech or language impairment, a visual impairment (including blindness), a serious emotional disturbance, an orthopedic impairment, autism, traumatic brain injury, another health impairment, a specific learning disability, deaf-blindness, or multiple-disabilities.
The Keystone Local School District is asking for your assistance with this important effort. When children are school-age (grades K-12), the district works to identify and evaluate these students so they can receive special education and related services. However, when children are of preschool age or younger, they often go unidentified because parents may not be aware of possible programs available for their child.
Please help us in our effort to serve those children who may be in need as early as possible. If you know of a child who may have one of the disabilities listed and is not currently in school or receiving services, please contact Taya Neuman, Special Education Supervisor at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 440-355-5132.
