• Special Education Referral/Child Find
     

    School districts are required by law to identify, locate, and evaluate individuals from birth through age 21 with known or suspected disabilities to determine whether they need special education and/or related services. Child Find is a free referral and information service. Pflugerville ISD serves children who live within its boundaries or attend a private or home school within its boundaries.
