CHILD FIND NOTICE

It is the responsibility of Weber School District (WSD) to identify any child who is a resident of WSD who may have a disability, regardless of the severity of the disability. Children eligible for Section 504 accommodations or services include those children who have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.

If you suspect your child has a disability and does not qualify special education services,
please contact your child’s teacher, or call the District’s Student Services Coordinators at 801-476-7811 to ask about 504 accommodations or for additional information.
