Mission Statement
The mission of the Department of Student Services is to provide support services for all students empowering them to become productive citizens.

Search for Children with Disabilities 
As a local school district we have the responsibility to identify and evaluate all children with disabilities. A preschool child, between the ages of 3-5, is defined as having a disability if he or she has a documented deficit in two or more of the following areas: communication skills, hearing, motor functioning, social-emotional/behavior difficulties, cognitive ability and/or adaptive behavior skills or visual impairment.
 
For school age children, ages 5-21, a child may qualify for special services if he or she has a disability in one or more of the following areas: autism, cognitive disability, behavioral/emotional, speech/language, multiple disabilities, specific learning disabilities, traumatic brain injury, health or orthopedic impairment, or vision/hearing disabilities.

Early observations and records help an evaluation team find appropriate programs and services prior to the child entering school. If you have a child up to age 21 years of age or younger who has, or a child who is suspected of having a disability, please contact YCSD.
