SPECIAL EDUCATION AND SECTION 504 CHILDFIND NOTICE

 

Gorham has a duty to locate, evaluate and identify any child residing in the District who qualifies for Special Education services or any child attending the public schools who may require Section 504 accommodations or services.

 

Children eligible for special education include those children with disabilities who have autism, deaf-blindness, emotional disturbance, hearing impairment, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairment, other health impairment, specific learning disability, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury, acquired brain injury, visual impairment, or developmental delay and who, because of such an impairment, need special education services.

 

Children eligible for Section 504 accommodations or services include those children who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.

 

If you suspect your child has a disability and may need special education services or 504 accommodations, or if you would like additional information, please contact your child’s teacher, or call the District’s 504 Strategist, Lisa Larrabee at 222-1020.
DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS
The School Department destroys the education records of its special education students at the end of the school year in which the student would turn 26 years old. Parents or adult students wishing to obtain these records should contact the School Department at that time. To obtain special education records, please contact the Special Services Department at 207-222-1002.
