Child Find/Referral

The mission of Riverton CUSD 14 is to create a nurturing environment where we challenge our students to reach their highest potential.


CHILD FIND/REFERRAL

Students are identified for special education through a child find process as required by federal and state guidelines. For students who are 3 – 5 years old, development screening and services are available through our Pre – School Program.  

For those students currently attending our K – 12 buildings, the district uses a Problem Solving Process to provide early interventions to supplement research-based core instruction for academic and/or behavioral concerns. The building Problem Solving Team regularly reviews classroom performance and assists in connecting students to appropriate interventions. The data from this process then provides the foundation for a Multi-Tiered System of Supports approach (MTSS), which may result in a referral for screening and a possible determination of eligibility for special education services.


PLEASE NOTE THAT THE MTSS PROCESS IS SPECIFICALLY MANDATED BY THE STATE OF ILLINOIS IN THE DETERMINATION OF A SPECIFIC LEARNING DISABILITY.


QUESTIONS

Questions or concerns regarding the child find/referral process should be directed to your child’s principal.
