Child Find/Public Participation

Child Find Logo 

Child Find is the process of identifying, locating, and evaluating children with disabilities who may be in need of special education and related services.  All children are entitled to an education, regardless of the severity of their disability. In compliance with the Federal and State laws, the Trotwood-Madison City School District offers a number of services for students with disabilities, many of which are incorporated into the regular education program.
Parents, relatives, public, and private agency employees, and concerned citizens are used to help school districts find any child, age birth-21, who may have a disability and have need of special education and related services.  Please help us locate children with special needs who are not receiving an education. For more information call (937) 854-3050 Ext. 1119.

The Trotwood-Madison City Schools prepares annual IDEA and preschool disabilities applications and seeks input and suggestions from members of the community as part of this process.  Idea-B is a federal entitlement program which provides funding for the education of students with disabilities.  The preschool disabilities grant provides federal funds for the education of children with disabilities ages 3-5.  If you have any suggestions or input, please contact a Special Education Supervisor at 854-3050 ext. 1119 or complete an input form, available in the Curriculum Department at the Trotwood-Madison Board of Education, 3594 N. Snyder Road, Trotwood, Ohio 45426.
