Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
It has been an outstanding start to the academic year and I want to thank our students, families, teachers, staff and other partners for continuing to support St. Vrain Valley Schools’ drive for excellence in serving our community and advancing public education.
Child Find - Birth through Five
For children ages birth to five (who are not attending a district preschool), developmental screenings and evaluations are provided by a District Child Find Assessment Team at the Student Services building (830 South Lincoln St., Longmont). The District Child Find Assessment Team may be comprised of School Psychologists, Speech and Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, a School Nurse, and Early Childhood Special Education Teachers. Autism and Culturally/Linguistically Diverse Specialists consult as needed.
Birth through Three (Part C)
The District Child Find Assessment Team works collaboratively with community agencies (Imagine! in Boulder County and Envision in Weld County) and others to determine eligibility and assist in the development of Individualized Family Service Plans, IFSP’s, for children birth to 3 year olds. Home-based services are provided for children who are eligible. Please call the Child Find Office at (303)772-6649 to begin the process.
Preschool (Three through Five - Part B)
The District Child Find Assessment Team completes screenings and evaluations. If the child is determined eligible for Special Education following an evaluation, an Individualized Education Plan is developed. The eligible student is placed in a district preschool where Special Education services are provided in an integrated preschool setting. Please call the Child Find Office at (303)772-6649 to begin the process.
