    Child Find
    Lake Stevens School District is interested in locating, evaluating, and identifying students from birth to age 21 who are suspected of having a disability for the purpose of determining whether they are in need of special education and related services. This also includes highly mobile children who are suspected of having a disability and in need of special education. If your family is living in a temporary situation, you may contact the district where you are currently staying for screening.

    A student eligible for special education means a student who has been evaluated and determined to need special education because of having a disability in one of the eligibility categories, and who, because of the disability and adverse educational impact, has unique needs that cannot be addressed exclusively through education in general education classes with or without individual accommodations, and requires specially designed instruction. The eligibility categories are hearing, vision, speech or language, orthopedic or health impairment, intellectual disability, an emotional behavioral disability, autism, traumatic brain injury, deaf-blindness, multiple disabilities, a specific learning disability or for students, three through eight, a developmental delay.

    Questions concerning school-age special education services should be directed to the building principal, school psychologist or Special Services department at (425) 335-1500.
