Student Services

Student Services

The student services department is focused on identifying the specific needs of individual students and providing appropriate supports for students who qualify.  Our goal is to help each SWL student reach his or her full academic potential in a safe, inviting and masterfully taught environment. 

Special Education

Our special education program is designed to identify students with disabilities and implement programs and services to support their educational needs.

Child Find

The Southwest Licking Local School District is committed to the location, identification and provision of a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), for all children between the ages of 3 and 22, having disabilities.


Location and referral of such children (Child Find) may be initiated by anyone with knowledge of the child and suspecting the child may have a disability. Please contact Paula Brunton, Director of Student Services, at 740-927-3941, with any questions, concerns, or names for Child Find referrals within the Southwest Licking School District.
