Child Find for SPSD

The South Panola School District is participating in an ongoing statewide effort to identify, locate,

and evaluate children birth through twenty-one years of age who reside in the South Panola School

District and who are suspected of having physical, mental, communicative and/or emotional disability.

Early identification of children in need of special education services is most important to each child.

Furthermore, this information gathered from contacts with parents and other agencies will be used to

help determine present and further program needs as progress is made toward the goal of

providing a free appropriate public education to all children with a disability.

If you know of any children who may have a disability, please contact

the Child-Find Coordinator for the South Panola School District,

by calling or writing to her at the following:

Melinda Price

209 Boothe Street

Batesville, MS 38606


The Child-Find Coordinator implements child identification, location, and evaluation of children,

birth through twenty-one who have a disability, regardless of the severity of their disability, and

who are in need of special education and/or related services under Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

The Child-Find Coordinator works with the local Headstart, Department of Human Resources,

Health Department, and Mental Health agencies, as well as local education agencies, physicians, and

other individuals to identify and locate children out of school and in school who may be in need

of special education services.

We currently have at least 42 special education classes in our district which provide services to

students who have a physical, mental, communicative and/or emotional disability.

Thank you
