  • Family income survey due back to district by Sept. 1. As you may know, our schools now offer all meals at no charge. In order to help our schools get the full amount of federal and state funding available to them and to make sure your child is receiving all the services they are eligible for, the school must have a way to identify children from households that are at or below the federal poverty level. There are certain state funded programs (all-day kindergarten, learning assistance program, teacher incentives, and K- 3 poverty) that are given to our school district based on income levels of households for student's attending that school. This is why it is so important for you to return this information to your school. Please complete this form by Sept. 1st and return to your schools office. Click here for a copy of the survey in English and click here for a printable copy of the survey in Spanish.

  • Child Find Program reaching out to find students who need special services. One of the most important responsibilities you have as a parent is to make sure that your child has what he/she needs. That goes beyond love, food and clothing. Approximately 10 percent of all children have some special need that requires special attention. If you think your child (birth through age 21) has difficulty seeing or hearing, has communication or diagnosed health problems, has difficulty learning or playing, help is as close as your Child Find Coordinator at your local school district. Parents with children in private schools and/or parochial schools, or anyone knowing of a child who is highly mobile, homeless or migrant should contact their closest school district in which they reside for Child Find information. Child Find is a process of locating children who will need special services in order to experience success in school. The schools and community agencies are working together to provide these services. If you know a child that may need help, please call the Grandview Special Education office at (509) 882-852.
