INOLA PUBLIC SCHOOLS -- CHILD FIND

Child Find is a public awareness activity to locate, evaluate and identify children ages 3 through 21 years of age who may have disabilities defined under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).  A child with a disability means a child evaluated and determined eligible for special education and related services in accordance with IDEA under the following categories:

Autism, Deaf-Blindness, Deaf or Hearing Impairment, Emotional Disturbance (ED), Intellectual Disabilities (ID), Multiple Disabilities (MD), Orthopedic Impairment (OI), Other Health Impairment (OHI), Specific Learning Disability (SLD), Speech or Language Impairment (SLI), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Visual Impairment (VI), Developmental Delay (DD).

Inola Public School District is responsible for locating, evaluating, and identifying children with disabilities who live within the Inola Public School's district boundaries.  All eligible children with disabilities beginning at age three, who are residents of the Inola Public School District, have a right to a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) as mandated by the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA).  The specific special education and related services for eligible children ages 3-21 will be determined by the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team members based on that particular child's unique needs.

If you have a preschool aged child or you are a parent of a child attending a private school, and you suspect your child may have a disability or is exhibiting delays in his/her development, and you are a resident of the Inola Public School District, please contact the Special Education Director at 918-543-3104.

If your child is already enrolled and is attending one of the Inola Public School District's sites, please visit with your child's teacher, school counselor, or the Special Education Director about your concerns regarding your child's development, or that you suspect your child may have a disability.
