Kane School District: Attention Child Find
In accordance with Part B requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act 04 and with the Utah State Board of Education Special Education Rules, Kane County School District offers free assessments and evaluation for children, aged birth through 21, who parents, teachers, or others suspect of having a disability.
Kane School District is committed to ensuring that those students are identified, located, and evaluated, regardless of the severity of the disability, to identify if the student is in need of special education and related services. This child find requirement and practice also applies to those students enrolled in private schools.
If you suspect that a child who is not receiving special education services is in need of an evaluation to determine if that need exists, please contact Chris Kupfer, Kane District Special Education Director at 435-590-8144 or the special education teacher at your neighborhood school
Parents/Guardians: According to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), you have the right to know the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teacher. If you are interested in obtaining this information, please contact your school principal.
Recently the state released the scores from the SAGE end of level testing. The Utah State Office of Education released The Public School Data Gateway to provide access to these scores. The psdGateway is a compilation of data from recent end of level testing, attendance/enrollment as well as other forms of information regarding the schools in the state. We invite you to visit the site and view the results from SAGE testing and if you have any questions or concerns, please contact a district or school representative.
