In compliance with Washington Administrative Code 392-172A-02040, this is to notify parents whose children live or attend school within the Bellevue School District boundaries of Child find. Child find activities are conducted in order to locate, evaluate and identify students with a suspected disability, regardless of the severity of the disability, who reside or attend school within the District boundaries, and includes reaching students who are homeless, wards of the state, highly mobile students with disabilities, such as homeless and migrant students and students who are suspected of being a student with a disability and in need of special education, even though they are advancing from grade to grade.

If you have a child from BIRTH THROUGH AGE FIVE who lives within the District and has trouble with talking, walking, seeing, hearing, following directions, and/or meeting any other developmental milestones, they may be eligible for special education services through the Bellevue School District. If you would like more information about these programs and a free screening, call 425-456- 4149.

If you have a student from KINDERGARTEN THROUGH AGE 21 who has difficulty with academic skills or a suspected disability, call the counselor at your local school or call 425-456-4149 for more information about support and programs available.

The Bellevue School District acknowledges that we learn, work, live and gather on the Indigenous Land of the Coast Salish peoples, specifically the Duwamish and Snoqualmie Tribes. We thank these caretakers of this land, who have lived and continue to live here, since time immemorial.
