A notice to parents/guardians and health care providers from the Plymouth Public Schools SPECIAL EDUCATION DEPARTMENT:
It is the responsibility of the Plymouth School Department to identify any child who is a resident of Plymouth who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of that disability.
It is also the responsibility of the Plymouth public schools to evaluate those students to determine which are eligible for special education or related services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) or 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations).
Plymouth's public schools are committed to locating those children before their third birthday in order to provide early intervention services for children 3 and 4 years old.
If you have questions or concerns regarding your child’s development and would like to have your preschool child screened, call Denise Tobin, the principal of the Plymouth Early Childhood Center, at 508-830-4347 for an appointment.
If your child is already enrolled in kindergarten through grade 12 and you or your pediatrician think your child should be evaluated to determine eligibility for special education services, you should make that request in writing to the principal of your child's school. Include your child’s name, address, and date of birth, as well as the parent's name and telephone number and a brief description of your concerns.
Please contact the district Special Education Office at 508-830-4343 for any further contact information.
