Child Find Notice
It is the responsibility of the Uxbridge Public Schools to identify any child who is a resident of Uxbridge, who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability. It is also the responsibility of Uxbridge Public Schools to evaluate those students to determine if they are eligible for special education or related services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations).
The Uxbridge Public Schools District is committed to identifying children before their (3rd) third birthday in order to provide early intervention services for three and four year-olds.
Date of screening: TBD (Will occur prior to April 15, 2023)
