Marlborough Public Schools and Child Find Responsibilities

Wicked Local Marlborough has posted the following online:

If you know of any school-age child, ages 3 to 21, who is a resident of Marlborough, who is attending a public or private school or who is homeless or has left school, and who could benefit from an evaluation under special education, 504 or educational services under the McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, contact the Marlborough Public Schools Office of Special Education for information regarding eligibility guidelines and services.

It is the responsibility of the Marlborough Public Schools to identify any child who is a resident of Marlborough who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability.  It is also the responsibility of the Marlborough Public Schools to evaluate those students to determine if they are eligible for special education or related services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or 306 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations).

Write inquiries to Special Education Director Tina M. Betley or Assistant Special Education Director Karen Sturges at Marlborough Public Schools, Office of Special Education, 25 Union St., Marlborough, MA 01752 or call 508-460-3502 and press 2.

To the extent practical and as required by law, the Marlborough Public School district will work with students and their families to provide stable in-school attendance and other services, according to the department.

The Law Office of James M. Baron represents students and parents in special education and other school-related legal matters throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire.  Please visit http://www.lawbaron.com, or call 781-209-1166 for more information.
