It is the responsibility of Pima Prevention Partnership Schools (Pima Partnership Academy, Pima Partnership High School and Arizona Collegiate High School) to inform the general public and all parents within our boundaries of our responsibility to make available special education services for students with disabilities aged three through 21 years and how to access those services.  In addition, we have a responsibility to provide information regarding early intervention services for children birth through two years.

We are responsible for identifying, locating, and evaluating all children with disabilities including children aged three through 21 and for referring children from birth through two years of age to Arizona Early Intervention Program (AzEIP) for evaluation and appropriate services.

We are also responsible for providing a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) which includes special education and related services to children with disabilities at public expense, under public supervision and direction and without charge to the parents.
For all new students to Pima Prevention Partnership Schools, a general education classroom teacher will complete screening activities within 45 days of enrollment.  The teacher will look at the child’s ability in the areas of academics, vision, hearing, adaptive, communication, social/emotional and motor skills.  If any concerns are noted the child may be referred for additional help.

For any student attending a Pima Prevention Partnership School OR attending a private school without our boundaries OR any student that is home schooled that may be suspected that may be suspected of having a disability, the procedure for referral is as follows:

  1.  A written request to the school.  This written request should contain the reason for the referral, areas or issues of concern, reason for suspecting disability, and any previous interventions that have been attempted to date.
  2. Contact information of the person referring.  This request should be sent to:
