First Steps

If your child is between the ages of 3 to 5 years old, and you suspect he/she needs special education services, your first step will be to contact Tifani Rogers, Early Childhood Coordinator, at 401-398-1634 or via email When you request that your child be evaluated for special education, this is called a referral.
