It is the responsibility of the Uxbridge Public Schools Department 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 which are eligible for special education or related services under the IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations)
The Uxbridge Public Schools are committed to locating children before their third birthday in order to provide early intervention services for three and four year olds.
