We strive to locate, identify, and evaluate children with suspected disabilities or who may be intellectually gifted living in Unicoi County including those students that are homeless, migrant, or attending a home school or private school in our system. Anyone knowing of a child suspected of being disabled or intellectually gifted should contact the office of Special Education at (423) 743- 1611. Information will be used in planning and providing free and appropriate public education programs for students with special needs.
