If you are aware of any children residing within he Etowah County School jurisdiction, whose special education needs are not presently met, please notify me at the above listed address and phone number.  Educational planning and coordination for services with other appropriate agencies are available for preschool age children.
 
Your cooperation and assistance in this continuing endeavor to locate all children who may be in need of special services is greatly appreciated.
