• Vance County Schools supports Project Child Find, an effort coordinated by our schools and the Exceptional Children Division of the N.C. Department of Public Instruction.


    Project Child Find is designed to locate and identify children and youth ages birth through 21 with disabilities who are in need of special education and related services. The project also seeks to inform parents and guardians of the services available from their local school system and other state and community agencies.


    Those who qualify for assistance are children and youth who have been diagnosed or are suspected to have intellectual, physical or emotional disabilities and are unable to benefit from a regular school program without special assistance.


    Anyone who knows of a child or youth with disabilities who is not in school or receiving special assistance may contact Dr. Gloria Jones, director of the Exceptional Children's Program for Vance County Schools, by phone at 252-492-2127 or in the schools' Administrative Services Center at 1724 Graham Avenue in Henderson.
