The Fairfield City Board of Education makes services available to all students eligible for special education. Students are determined eligible through a Multi- Eligibility Determination Committee, which includes the parent and if appropriate, the student. The Alabama State Code defines the criteria for each of the thirteen categories to include the following:
- Developmental Delay
- Emotional Disturbance
- Hearing Impairment
- Intellectual Disability
- Multiple Disabilities
- Orthopedic Impairment
- Specific Learning Disabilities
- Speech Language Impairment
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Visual Impairment
Help us locate children with disabilities!
The Fairfield City Board of Education has Child Find procedures that ensure that all children within its jurisdiction, ages birth to twenty-one, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who need special education and related services are identified, located, and evaluated. These Child Find procedures also apply to children who attend private schools, within the Fairfield City Board of Education district, highly mobile children with disabilities (i.e. migrant and homeless children, or children who are wards of the state), and children who are suspected of having a disability and are in need of special education even though they are advancing from grade to grade.
