The Randolph County Special Education Program provides academic services to students who can qualify on eligibility from the Georgia Department of Education.  The eligibilities can be located at their website: www.doe.k12.ga.us. We offer a full range of educational services to meet the individual needs of our students with disabilities, ages 3-21 years.  Parents play a vital role in their child's education and their input is welcome at all times. If you have a child or know of a child 2 1/2 years older that may have special needs please contact the special education director.
Transition From Babies Can't Wait Into the Local School System

IDEA 2004 mandates special education services and supports be provided through the public school for young children with disabilities beginning at age 3.

IDEA also mandates a "transition conference" between the BCW service coordinator, the family, and the local school system (LSS) to begin as early as nine months before, but no later than 90 days before the child's third birthday.

A parent/guardian must provided consent to the BCW Service Coordinator before the coordinator contacts the LSS for a meeting.
