Welcome to Topock Elementary

Education is the key to everything that is good in our world today. Advances in computers, information technology, math, medicine, psychology, engineering and every other discipline would be impossible if education did not let us build on the advances of the great minds that came before us.

Child Find

The intent of Child Find is that all children from birth through age 21 with delays or disabilities are identified, located and evaluated to receive the supports and services they need. Public schools and the Arizona Early Intervention Program are responsible for “finding” eligible children and providing services needed for them to reach their developmental milestones or meet their educational needs. When children are “found”, they are referred to a specialist to screen their development. The screening helps “identify” any areas of concern that need to be evaluated further. In order to receive early intervention or special education services, a child must be evaluated to confirm they have a delay or disability that falls under state definitions. If needed, the child is evaluated using state criteria for specific delays or disabilities. If eligible, the Arizona Early Intervention Program or a public school system will offer early intervention or special education services according to the child’s needs.

 

Family Services

* Early intervention supports and services assist families of children who are eligible by helping children ages Birth to three years develop to their full potential. In Arizona, early intervention services are provided through the Arizona Early Intervention Program (or AzEIP).

 

* Preschool special education services for children ages 3 to 5 provide special strategies to help children reach their developmental milestones.

 

* Special education services for school-aged children in kindergarten through the age of 21 provide specialized instruction and services to assist children in the educational

environment. To reach Arizona Child Find, click here Arizona Coordinator.

K-12 Student Accident Insurance

Is your child covered by a high-deductible employer plan? If you have to pay hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in order to meet your deductible, the K-12 Accident insurance plan can reimburse you for your children’s eligible medical expenses as you continue to work toward meeting the deductible on your employer plan.

Attorney General Terry Goddard

gives advice to parents and children about safe Internet use. “Kids no longer need muscles to bully and torment their peers. Young people can use Web sites, smart phone, text messaging and other cyberspace options to harass, threaten or ridicule.” He also points out that children need protection from Internet predators. He invites parents to take a look at the free Internet monitoring service provided by the National Crime Prevention Council.
