Exceptional Education

Child Find is the federally mandated process designed to identify, locate and evaluate children who are birth to age 21, inclusive, who are in need of special education and related services as defined in the Virginia Regulations. This includes children who are home-schooled, children who are mobile, including those who are homeless or migrant, and who are wards of the state; children who are under 18, who are suspected of having a disability who need special education and related services, and who are incarcerated in a regional or local jail for 10 or more days; and children who are suspected of being children with disabilities, even though they are advancing from grade to grade. 
Nottoway County Public Schools participates with Infant & Toddler Connection of the Heartland which oversees the requirements found in Part C of IDEA. Children, aged birth through two, are referred to Infant & Toddler Connection (ITC) of the Heartland. The phone number for ITC is 434-395-2967. Nottoway County Public Schools provides special education and related services for children who will be at least two years old on or by September 30th of the current school year. 
Nottoway County Public Schools conducts public awareness activities on an ongoing basis. Child Find is the required process of locating children in need of referral. Brochures are distributed to local public agencies and private schools as well as physicians' offices and other locations in the community to inform the public of referral services. 
NCPS is also required to identify children who are parentally-placed in private schools located within Nottoway County, even if they reside outside of Nottoway County.
