Special Education Services Eligibility

The Individuals With Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires states to have procedures in place to ensure all children with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services, are identified, located, and evaluated and that the services they receive are documented.

In compliance with Washington Administrative Code 392-172A-02040, this is to notify parents whose children live or attend school within the Richland School District boundaries of Child find. Child find activities are conducted in order to locate, evaluate and identify students with a suspected disability, regardless of the severity of the disability, who reside or attend school within the District boundaries, and includes reaching students who are homeless, wards of the state, highly mobile students with disabilities, such as homeless and migrant students and students who are suspected of being a student with a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade.

The Richland School District has procedures in place to locate, identify, and evaluate students between the ages of 3 and 21 who are suspected of having a disability and may be eligible for special education and related services. If your student may need special education services, contact the Special Education Department at 509-967-6050 to request that your student be evaluated for special education.
