Arizona Child Find is a component of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act of 2004 that requires schools to locate, identify, and evaluate children in need of early intervention or special education services.

It is Sonoran Schools responsibility to inform the general public and all parents of our responsibility to make available references for special education services for students with disabilities aged 2 years 10.5 months through 21 years of age and how to access those services. In addition we have a responsibility to provide information regarding early intervention services for children birth through 2 years 10.5 months.

We are responsible for identifying, locating and referring all children with disabilities, including children ages 2 years and 10.5 months through 21 years of age and from birth through 2 years and 10.5 months of age to the Arizona Early Intervention Program for evaluation and appropriate services.

We are also responsible for providing a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) for children in grades K-12, which includes special education and related services to children with disabilities at public expense, under public supervision and direction and without charge to parents.

For all new students to the school, classroom teachers will complete screening activities within 45 days of enrollment. The teacher will look at the child's ability in the areas of academics, vision, hearing, communication, social/emotional, adaptive development and motor skills. If any concerns are noted the child may be referred for additional help.

Children birth through 2 years and 10.5 months of age who are receiving early intervention service and will be participating in preschool programs for children with disabilities will be assured a smooth transition into that program.

If you have questions or would like more information please call your local school or Ms. Shannon Wise, Student Services Director, at (480) 940-5440.
