Child Find Process

Child Find is part of the federal special education law known as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), that requires schools identify, locate, and evaluate all children, aged birth through 21 years, who have disabilities and may be entitled to special education and related services. Michigan is the only state which has a state law mandating (or requiring) special education for students with disabilities birth to 26 years of age. This law is known as the Michigan Mandatory Special Education Act (MMSE) and is part of the Revised School Code. 

St. Ignace Area Schools is committed to ensuring that every effort is made to seek out children and students who may need special education and related services.  Please use this link to access more information regarding the Child Find Process.
