Approximately 6 months before your child's birthday, Child and Family Connections will be contacting you to sign a release of information form to have the ability to refer your child to Jefferson Early Childhood Center. Once the permission is signed, records regarding your child's evaluation, goals and progress will be sent to Jefferson so we can begin the process of understanding the educational needs of your child.
After we receive the information you will be invited to a Transition meeting here at Jefferson Early Childhood Center. At the Transition Meeting you will meet a representative of the Diagnostic team from the Jefferson Early Childhood Center and a representative from Child and Family Connections. At that time, we will be reviewing rules and regulations involving special education evaluations, services and placement options. We will also be discussing eligibility criteria for receiving these services. District policy states that you will need to provide your child’s original birth certificate and three documents to prove residency. These forms of identification will be copied and placed in your child’s file.

We look forward to meeting you and your child and assisting in the transition from Early Intervention to the Early Childhood services we offer here at Jefferson Early Childhood Center.
