Special Education Child Find
In accordance with Part B requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 04 and with the Utah State Board of Education Special Education Rules, Kane County School District offers free assessments and evaluation for children, aged birth through 21, who parents, teachers, or others suspect of having a disability.
Kane School District is committed to ensuring that those students are identified, located, and evaluated, regardless of the severity of the disability, to identify if the student is in need of special education and related services. This child find requirement and practice also applies to those students enrolled in private schools.
If you suspect that a child who is not receiving special education services is in need of an evaluation to determine if that need exists, please contact Chris Kupfer, Kane District Special Education Director at 435-590-8144 or the special education teacher at your neighborhood school.
