Identifying Children with Disabilities

Bend-La Pine Schools seeks assistance locating children with disabilities (birth through age 21) who have not graduated from high school and who are not currently attending or receiving other special services from public schools.

Oregon and federal law mandate educational services for children with disabilities. Bend-La Pine Schools provides educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school. Services provided are appropriate to each child's disability.

Parents, guardians and anyone who knows of a child (ages 5 through 21) with a disability currently not receiving educational services are asked to notify the special education contact person in the child's home school or contact the District's Special Education Department at 541-355-1060.
