Child Find

Do you have concerns about your child's development? Do you suspect they may have a disability that is affecting their language, cognitive, social, motor, or adaptive living skills?

The Scottsbluff Public School District has an ongoing goal of locating and identifying all children, birth through age 21, who have special needs. The District will provide any child or youth who has a disability an appropriate public education at no cost to the parents of the child. Children or youth with disabilities are those who have developmental delays, hearing impairments or deafness, vision impairments or blindness, emotional disturbance, health impairments, specific learning disabilities, speech and language impairments, intellectual disability, orthopedic impairments, autism, multiple impairments or traumatic brain injuries. In addition, children and youth with any disability which substantially limits a major life activity may receive accommodations to allow them access to an appropriate education (Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, as amended). The Scottsbluff Public School District requests your help in locating children and youth with disabilities who are eligible to benefit from Special Education or 504 accommodations. If you know of a child or youth who is a resident of the District, who may have a disability and is not receiving needed services, please contact:
