Child Find

J.O. Combs Unified School District #44 has programs for children in preschool through age 22 who may require special services. Through the ongoing Project Child Find, the district is seeking children with disabilities who are not yet receiving any special education services. Our district serves the needs of school-aged children who have physical, mental, emotional, speech, hearing, vision, language, or other disabilities. If you know of any such children, or have questions about the programs available, please call your neighborhood school or Jeremy Evan Scherer at the district’s special needs office at 480-987-5321. If you have any specific questions about preschool-age children, call Ranch School at 480-882-3538.
