Child Find Ages 0-21 Years
The Slate Valley Unified Union School District – Benson, Orwell, West Haven, Fair Haven, Hubbardton and Castleton – in meeting requirements of its Local Education Agency Plan, is attempting to identify any and all area resident children between the ages of 0-21 years who may have a disability. These children are entitled to receive, at public expense, an education regardless of disability. It is possible that the Slate Valley Unified Union School District may not be aware of the residence of all handicapped children. If you know of a child who might be eligible for education services and is not in school, please notify either your local school or the Director of Special Services in the Slate Valley Unified Union School District, 33 Mechanic St., Fair Haven, VT or phone 265-4905.
