2012-13 Child Find Campaign
An Education for All
As required by the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
, Section 504
and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act
(IDEA), the Gahanna-Jefferson Special Education Office
conducts an ongoing Child Find
campaign to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities - from birth through age 21 - residing within the school district. The campaign also seeks out those who may be homeless, wards of the state, or attending nonpublic schools.
If you know of a child with a disability, or have a child suspected
of having a disability, who is not currently receiving appropriate
educational or related services, please contact the GJPS Office of
Special Education at 614-337-3777.
