Identification of Disabled Students

The Banks School District  is seeking assistance in locating children with disabilities (birth through age 21) who have not graduated from high school and currently are not attending nor receiving other special services from public schools.

 

Oregon and federal law mandate educational services for children with disabilities. Banks School District provides educational programs and services for eligible children from kindergarten through high school. Services provided are appropriate to each child's disability. 

The Northwest Regional Education Service District (NWRESD) provides educational services for eligible children from birth to kindergarten.

 

Parents, guardians, or anyone who knows of a child (age five through 21*) with a disability currently not receiving educational services are asked to notify the Student Services Office at 503-324-3111.  

 

* For children younger than kindergarten, please call the NWRESD at 503-614-1446.
