The Otis School Department seeks to ensure that all school age children, ages five through 20, who are in need of special education and supportive assistance are identified, located and evaluated. If through the Child Find process, it is discovered that a child requires special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education, the student shall be referred to the IEP Team to determine the student’s eligibility for special education services.

School staff, parents, agency representatives, or other individuals with knowledge of the child may refer children to the IEP team if they believe that the student, because of a disability, may be in need of special education and supportive services in order to benefit from regular education. Such a referral should follow the school unit’s pre-referral and referral policy.
