Child Find is an ongoing process to identify children between birth through age 21 who may have disabilities and would be eligible for early intervention services or special education and related services. Parents may request an evaluation to determine their child’s eligibility for services. A free, appropriate public education (FAPE) may include services along a continuum that could include supplementary aids and services, specialized instruction within the general education class or through a resource program, or special class in or out-of-district. An individualized education program (IEP) is developed for students with disabilities by the parents, child study team members and teachers. The IEP includes goals and objectives and describes the nature of the program and services to be provided. For further information or to make a referral, please contact Mrs. Alison Ricciotti, Child Study Team Supervisor at 609-487-7900 ext. 5030.
The Ventnor Special Education Parent Advisory Committee meets throughout the school year to provide resources and information to all families. Dates for upcoming meetings will be placed on the district calendar.
