Child Find Obligations: 
It is the responsibility of the Beverly Public Schools to identify any child who is a resident of Beverly, who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability. It is also the responsibility of Beverly Public Schools to evaluate those students to determine if they are eligible for special education or related services under IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) and 603 CMR 28 (Massachusetts Special Education Regulations). 

If you suspect that your child, ages 3-22, may need an evaluation to determine eligibility for special education services, you may request an evaluation, at no cost.  

This notice applies to children residing in Beverly who attend either public or private schools.  Please contact the Principal at your child’s school or the Special Education Department at 978-921-6100, for information about referring your child for an evaluation.
