Attention Private School Parents and Parents of Homeschooled Students - Child Find

It is the responsibility of the Falmouth Public Schools to identify any child who may have a disability who is either a resident of Falmouth or who attends a private school within the geographic boundaries of Falmouth, even if the student is not a resident of Falmouth.  This also includes students who are homeschooled.

Falmouth Public Schools is also responsible for evaluation of those students to determine if they are eligible for special education or related services under Federal law, IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act), or Massachusetts State Law, 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations).

Falmouth Public Schools is also committed to identifying children before their third birthday in order to provide early intervention services for three and four year-olds with disabilities.

If you suspect that your child may need an evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services, you may request an evaluation, at no cost, through the Falmouth Public Schools Office of Student Services at 508-548-0151 ext. 143.
