Child Find for Special Education

Child Find for Special Education Services

Parents or guardians of children with special needs, from birth through the age of 21 years, can receive special education services.  If you are served by the West Holt Public School District, and if you feel your child may need special help, contact Paul Pistulka at West Holt Public Schools (925-2848).  If, after testing, your child should be identified as needing extra assistance, trained individuals to develop your child’s full potential can provide service.  The testing and education services are of no cost to the parent.  The service is provided through Nebraska School Law and Public Law 94-142.


If Child Qualified

All students in our program have an IEP (Individual Education Plan).  This is a written statement for each child with a disability that describes that student’s educational program and is developed, reviewed, and revised in accordance with IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act).  The IEP includes the special education and related services each student will receive.  The IEP is developed by a team that consists of parents, school professionals, and the student, when appropriate.  Each IEP is developed with each child’s capabilities, strengths, needs, and interests.  The IEP is a tool that directs and guides the development of educational experiences, helping the child achieve his or her goals.  At the age of 16, a transition page is added to the IEP to help the student move from high school to college, vocational training, or employment.
