Child Find is a process that districts use to identify, locate, and evaluate all children in the district, ages from birth through 21, who are suspected of having disabilities that may result in a need for special education and related services. If you have a child who is home schooled or attends private school and you would like to request an evaluation, please complete the Child Find Request Form.

2023 Parent Surveys:
Each year, the Georgia Department of Education makes available a survey to families of all students with disabilities to measure parent/family needs and perceptions. This survey helps the state to determine parents' perception of the success of parent engagement between them and the schools. The data collected from this survey is reported in the Annual Performance Report and on the system profile of each school system. The survey link is available below along with more information in English and Spanish. Our mission at Forsyth County Schools would be to receive "Strongly Satisfied" and "Very Strongly Satisfied" scores in this survey. If that is not your perception, please contact us and let us know how we can remedy this. The IDEA Parent Survey will be open from January 17 through May 31, 2023.
