School Age Transition
Preschool Children Not Receiving Early Intervention Services:
If the child is in preschool and/or of preschool age, and there are concerns regarding his/her development, please contact the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU), Early Intervention Department at 610-539-8550.
Preschool Children Receiving Early Intervention Services who will be entering Kindergarten:
If the child is receiving Early Intervention Services through the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit (MCIU), the MCIU will provide information to the parent(s)/guardian(s) concerning the transition process and the need for registration with Upper Perkiomen School District (UPSD). The MCIU will schedule a Transition Meeting with the parent(s)/guardian(s), an MCIU Representative, and the UPSD School Age Transition Team Representative. After residency has been satisfied, UPSD will schedule an Intake Meeting for parent(s)/guardian(s). At the Intake Meeting, the child's records will be reviewed, and the reevaluation process will be discussed. Upon approval from the parent(s)/guardians, UPSD will conduct a Reevaluation. Following the Reevaluation, educational programming will be determined.
Parents are invited to review the SCHOOL AGE DISABILITIY CATEGORIES defined under IDEA for which students transitioning to a school age may be deemed eligible for upon evaluation.
