Child Find


The Palo Pinto Independent School District has special services available to eligible infants, children, and young adults identified with a disability. Federal and State laws require that school districts maintain a Child Find system for identifying, locating, and evaluating individuals with disabilities (birth through 21 years of age) within its jurisdiction who are in need of special education or related services.
 

Our Child Find efforts include advertising the availability of services through media, public notices, staff training, physicians, nursing homes, group homes, and hospitals.
 

If your child is 0-21 years of age and has a disability or is suspected of having a disability and you live in Palo Pinto county, your child may be eligible for services.
 

Palo Pinto County Special Education S.S.A. serves children with disabilities attending home-school and private non-profit schools in Gordon, Graford, Mineral Wells, Palo Pinto, Santo, and Strawn.
