Child Find and Evaluation

Child Find and Evaluation

The Clear Creek Independent School District has special services available to eligible infants, children, and young adults identified with a disability.

Child Find
Federal and State laws require that school districts maintain a Child Find system and processes for identifying, locating and evaluating individuals with disabilities (birth through 21 years of age) within its jurisdiction who are in need of special education or related services.

Clear Creek ISD's Child Find efforts include advertising the availability of services through the media, public notices, community health fairs and letters to private schools, physicians and public gathering places such as community libraries.
