Uintah School District has policies and procedures to ensure that all students with disabilities between the ages of three and 22, and those attending private schools, including students who are highly mobile, students who have been suspended or expelled from school, home schooled students, students who have not graduated from high school with a regular high school diploma, and those who are suspected of being a student with a disability and who are in need of special education or special education and related services even though they are advancing from grade to grade, and regardless of the severity of the disability, are identified, located, and evaluated.  This includes a practical method for determining which private school students are currently receiving needed special education or special education and related services.
