CHILD FIND

Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), all school districts are required to identify, locate, and evaluate all children with disabilities who are enrolled in public, independent/private and parochial schools. This responsibility is referred to as Child Find. If you have or know of a child whom you believe needs special education services, please contact TUHSD’s Special Education Department for more information:  (415) 945-1011.

  • Oversees IEP assessments and development with the IEP team
  • Communicates and collaborates with general education staff including teachers, counselors and administration, regarding a students needs

TRANSITION

The transition from 8th grade to high school is an important step in a student's educational journey. For students with IEPs, transition is a collaborative process which includes the family, 8th grade IEP Team and future high school IEP Team. TUHSD offers an annual parent information session each fall for incoming 8th grade families. Please return to this webpage for the date of the 2024 session and/or check with your child's current case manager (special education teacher) for more information.
