Special Education Department

Welcome to the Burlington-Edison School District, where we recognize that students have astonishing potential when they receive services and support tailored to their needs.

Childfind is a program for developing and implementing awareness and screening activities for the purpose of locating, identifying, and evaluating resident students, or students enrolled in a K-12 private school in Burlington-Edison, who are suspected of having a disability.

The Special Programs Department helps families determine if their students are in need of receiving special education and related services. These procedures encompass students ages birth through 21 regardless of the severity of the disability.

Families living in Burlington-Edison with a child between birth and 21 years of age may bring questions or concerns about how the child is developing to their school or the Special Program Office (360) 757-3311.

If your family is living in a temporary situation, you may contact the district where you are currently staying for a screening.
