The Tuscaloosa County Schools are attempting to find and identify individuals from birth to 21 years of age who have disabilities or are suspected to have disabilities and are in need of special education services.
Child Find is a program designed by the State Department of Education and the Department of Rehabilitation Services to help those who are in need of special education services.
Parents of disabled children or anyone knowledgeable of disabled children who may need special education services should contact the Child Find Coordinator in the Special Education Department (205) 342-2756 or call 1-800-392-8020 for ages 3 through 21 or 1-800-543-3098 from birth until 2 years of age. For more information you may also contact the Alabama Relay Service at 1-800-548-2547.
2016-17 Online Student Registration
The Tuscaloosa County School System is excited to announce an online student registration/data validation system for the upcoming school year, powered by InfoSnap. The system is a secure and green process, which allows the district to verify all student demographic, emergency and medical information for your child prior to the start of the new school year. The system will also allow you to electronically sign the annual permission forms for school district policies. In short, this online process replaces all the hard copy student registration and permission forms that your child brings home on the first day of school.
When it is time to fill out the online form, you will receive a letter/email from the Tuscaloosa County School System with instructions on how to access the system for your student. The email will contain a link/instructions and a secure “snapcode” that links directly to your student’s information. You will create an account, that you will use each year for this process, and submit a form for each student in your family. To make the process easier for families with multiple students, you will have the option to copy all generic family information to all other students in your family.
We would appreciate all families to take action and complete these forms as soon as possible after receiving the letter/email. Your student’s registration will not be complete until the forms have been submitted. If you do not have access to the Internet, contact your child’s school and you can make an appointment to use a school computer to complete the process. If you have any further questions, please contact the school office.
Starting this year The Tuscaloosa County School System is implementing ONLINE REGISTRATION for new and returning students.
