Jordan School District Special Education Child Find
Every child is entitled to a public education regardless of disability. Children with disabilities may go without services because families are not fully aware of their options. If you know of a child, birth to age 22, who is not receiving any education services or feel that your child may be in need of special education services, please contact your local school or call the Special Education Department in Jordan School District at 801-567-8176.
The identification, location and evaluation of students suspected of having a disability includes students attending private schools, students who are highly mobile, students who have been suspended or expelled from school, home schooled students, students who have not graduated from high school with a regular high school diploma and those who may be in need of special education and related services even though they are advancing from grade to grade, and regardless of the severity of the disability.
Special Education Records Destruction
On January 31, 2015, Jordan School District will destroy special education records of students born prior to September, 1987. Former special education students who are 27 years old, may request their records from the school last attended; otherwise, the records will be destroyed.
