Mayfield, Graves County public schools seek special needs children | Families
GRAVES COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - As part of an effort to serve the educational needs of all children, the Graves County and Mayfield Independent Schools are participating in “Project Child Find.”
The schools are asking the public to help locate children with disabilities who are either not in school or are not receiving special education services they need.
Children with disabilities include those who are hearing impaired, deaf, or blind, mentally disabled, emotionally/behaviorally disabled, speech/language impaired, multiply disabled, health impaired, orthopedically impaired or physically disabled, learning disabled, or visually impaired.
Services such as special transportation, speech therapy, occupational and physical therapy are available to students who might need related services.
Project Child Find is designed to ensure that children with disabilities are enrolled in an appropriate educational program and have opportunities in the fields of vocational education.
Anyone who knows of an infant, toddler, child or youth in the Graves County or Mayfield Independent School Districts, who is in need of special education and related services, is asked to contact Judy Self at the Graves County Board of Education at (270) 674-1549 or 328-1549 or Tammy Williams at the Mayfield Independent Board of Education at (270) 247-9914.
