What is Child Find?

The purpose of Child Find is to identify, locate, and evaluate all children, in the district, ages 3 through 21, who are suspected of, or have a disability or developmental delay that may result in a need for special education and related services. Coweta Charter Academy serves children grades K-8 with identified special education needs.

How can children be referred?
A referral may be made by anyone who has a concern about a child’s development. All referrals are considered confidential. The parent retains the right to refuse services. Please contact the Special Education department for referrals at 770-599-0228.

Facilitated IEP Program

Coweta Charter Academy Special Education Department is excited to partner with the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) to offer Facilitated Individualized Education Program (FIEP) Team Meetings.

An FIEP is an IEP Team Meeting lead by a facilitator and designed to be a collaborative dispute prevention and resolution process used when members of an IEP Team agree that the presence of a third party would help facilitate communication and problem solving. All facilitators participated in an intense three-day professional training on Conflict Prevention and Resolution through the IEP Team Meeting Facilitation process developed and facilitated by Doug and Joyce Little of Key2Ed, Inc. IEP Facilitators also participated in additional days of training by the GaDOE on IEP process and development, GaDOE required assessments, Georgia Standards of Excellence, Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Georgia’s Special Education Rules, and more.
