This Virginia document first states the mission of the Child Study Committee (CSC), clarifies its role, and delineates its functions from other existing programs and services. The CSC mission is stated as providing a school-based mechanism to enable school personnel to meet the needs of individual children having difficulty in the educational setting. Committee membership (both required and recommended) is delineated. CSC process is outlined and specific procedures mandated by Virginia's special education regulations are identified. Next, procedural guidelines for making the initial request for assistance from the CSC are provided. Suggested procedures for conducting the initial CSC meeting and follow-up CSC meetings are offered. Next, the relationship of the Child Study Committee to eight other existing programs/services is addressed, including Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 programs, family assessment and planning, and gifted education programs. The final section considers the CSC and student records and confidentiality. A flow chart of the CSC process is attached.
