Child Find

The Lumberton Public School District is participating in an ongoing statewide effort to identify, locate and evaluate children through the age of twenty-one who are physically, mentally, communicatively, or emotionally disabled. Early identification of children in need of special educational experiences is most important to each child. Furthermore, this information gathered from contacts with parents, interested community members, and public education agencies will be used to help determine a free, appropriate public education for all children with disabilities.

If you are aware of anyone in need of services, please contact Rhonda Livingston, Special Services Director for the Lumberton Public School District, at (601) 796-8674.
