Child Find

Project childfind is a nationwide attempt by public schools to identify and educate all exceptional children ages preschool through 20.  In-school efforts through annual screenings of all new students have helped to identify those students who need special services.  Community members are asked to assist RSU#18 (China, Oakland, Belgrade, Sidney & Rome) in this effort by calling Cheryl Mercier, Director of Special Services, at 465-2435 with information regarding preschool or school-age residents with special needs who are not currently enrolled in school.

Parents of children attending private schools who suspect their son/daughter may require special education services should call Cheryl Mercier to arrange a meeting.
