Child Find

In accordance with federal and state regulations, the Pembroke Public Schools provide special education programs designed to meet the needs of children who are attending not only public schools but also private schools at private expense and whose parents reside in Pembroke.

Pembroke provides all children with an opportunity to participate in the public school programs and strives to identify all children in need of special education services.  Pembroke Public Schools will arrange for the screening and evaluation of children aged 3 through 21 who are unable to progress effectively in regular education because of a disability.  Disabilities are defined as an impairment in one or more of the following areas: Autism, Developmental Delay, Intellectual Impairment, Sensory Impairment (Hearing or Vision), Neurological Impairment, Emotional Impairment, Communication Impairment, Physical Impairment, Health Impairment or Specific Learning Disability.  

Pembroke Public Schools conduct screenings for preschool children who will be turning three years of age.  Screenings are completed at the Integrated Preschool housed at the North Pembroke Elementary School.

For further information regarding eligibility for evaluations, programs, and/or services, please call the Office of Student Services at (781) 826-8740.
