ANNUAL NOTICE OF CHILD FIND
(SPECIAL EDUCATION REFERRAL AND EVALUATION PROCEDURES)
Upon request, Summit Classical School is required to evaluate the child for eligibility for special education services. A request for evaluation is known as a referral. When the district receives a referral, the school will appoint an Evaluation Planning team to determine if the child has adisability, and if the child needs special education services.

Before referring the child, the person making the referral must inform the child’s parent that the referral will be made.
Others, including parents, who reasonably believe a child is achild with a disability may also refer the child, including a homeless child, to the school or district in which the child is enrolled.
Referrals must be in writing and include the reason why the person believes the child is a child a disability. A referral may be made by contacting Sharath Rudrapati, Special Services Coordinator, at Summit Classical School via email at srudrapati@summitclassicalschoolcom, or by writing to him at Summit Classical School, 600 E Florida St. Clinton, SC 29325
