The Gilmer County School System is responsible for locating any children that may have a disability or be in need of special education services in our school district and community, including those attending private school or enrolled in home-school instruction.

After school begins, representatives from private schools, day care facilities and medical offices will be invited to attend a "Child Find" informative meeting at the Administrative and Technology offices of the Gilmer County School System. Letters will be sent out indicating the time and place of the meeting.

These community representatives can contact Kim Cagle, Special Education Director, at (706) 276-5000 with questions and concerns.
