Chartiers Valley utilizes a child find system to locate, identify, and evaluate children who are thought to have a disability and who may be eligible for special education and  who reside within the school district’s jurisdiction.  Child find data is collected, maintained and used in decision making in the best interest of each student. Child find processes and procedures are updated and evaluated for their effectiveness.  


The Special Education Plan for Chartiers Valley is posted publicly in preparation for cyclical monitoring that coincides with the School District Comprehensive Plan.  Chartiers Valley School District’s Plan is an action plan that describes the Board of Directors’ commitment to ensure a quality education will be provided to all students with a disability eligible for special education over a period of years.  This plan describes the programs and services offered.  It also reflects ongoing programs and services.
