Child Find

Search For Children With Disabilities

Child Find is a component of the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) that mandates school districts to identify, locate and evaluate all children with disabilities, regardless of their situations, who have significant, individual needs and require intensive interventions through special education and related services. To receive special education services children must meet eligibility requirements as authorized by IDEA.

Otsego Local Schools is responsible to also locate and identify students who meet the disability requirement under section 504 law. (See 504 brochure in parent resources)

**If you suspect your child may have a disability that meets IDEA or 504 requirements, please contact your building principal.
