Public Notice - Child Find


The Independent School District of Boise City, in cooperation with parents and nonpublic school agencies, engages in Child Find services throughout the school year. Child Find activities are conducted (1) to create public awareness of special education programs; (2) to advise the public of the rights of students; and (3) to alert community residents of the need for identifying and serving children with disabilities from the age of 3 through the semester in which they turn 21.

If you know of a child who is 3 through 21 years of age who may have individual needs that result from disabilities or developmental delays, and who is not enrolled in a school program, please contact your neighborhood school or the school district office at (208) 854-5520. These children may have difficulty walking, talking, hearing, or learning, or may display behaviors that appear different from other children their age.

If you are a part of a community agency or civic group that would like more information about educating children with disabilities, or would like pamphlets to distribute to members, please call the school office or one of the above phone numbers. TDD/TTY number: 7-1-1, or 1-800-377-3529 for TTY, or 1-800-377-1363.
