Pursuant to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) 2004, each school district is responsible for identifying, evaluating, and providing service for all public, private or home-schooled children with disabilities. If your child attends a private school or is home-schooled and you feel that your child may need to be screened for a possible disability, you should contact the GUHSD Office of Special Education at 623-435-6089. You may also refer your child for screening by contacting the school psychologist at the public school your child would attend if he/she attended public school. All public school students are screened within 6 weeks of the date of enrollment in the public school. The Arizona Department of Education website also gives further information regarding the identification of children with disabilities at ade.az.gov/ESS/ChildFind.
