Referrals for special education can be made by anyone concerned with a child's educational performance including a parent, teacher, community agency, or school official. Please contact your child's school for more information. If your child is preschool age or you home instruct your child please see the sections below for more information.

Private and Home School Students

KGCS is responsible for identifying, locating, and evaluating those children who reside in King George County but who are placed by their parents in a private school within the county. Parents or teachers of a resident child parentally placed in a private school located in King George County, or who is home-instructed, who believe there is reason to suspect a child has a disability and is in need of special education, should contact the counselor of their student's KGCS base school. The student will be required to register at the base school in order to receive a student identification number needed for data management purposes. Registration at the base school does not mean that the student is enrolled to attend a King George County school.
