SAU 41 Child Find

School Administrative Unit 41, which consists of the Hollis, Brookline, and Hollis Brookline Cooperative School Districts, seeks to locate and identify all children who may have an educational disability. Any person may refer for evaluation of a child under the age 21 for reasons including, but not limited to, the following:

  • Failing to pass a hearing or vision screening

  • Unsatisfactory performance on group achievement or accountability measures

  • Receiving multiple academic or behavioral warnings

  • Repeatedly failing one or more subject


The child find requirements of the district also apply to highly mobile children, homeless children, and children who are suspected of having an educational disability even though they are advancing from grade to grade. Child Find also includes those children in grades K-12 who attend approved, non-public private schools within the geographic boundaries of Hollis and Brookline regardless of where they reside.

Referrals may be initiated in a variety of ways:

For children ages 3 through Kindergarten who do not yet attend school - Please contact the Student Service Administrator in the district of residence.

For children who attend the Hollis, Brookline, and Hollis Brookline Cooperative School District public schools - Building principals, special education coordinators, or classroom teachers may be contacted by anyone wishing to initiate a referral.


For school aged children who attend the Hollis Montessori School, please contact Amy Rowe, Director of Student Services, at 603-324-5921 to initiate a referral.


Students in grades K-12 who attend private schools outside the geographical boundaries of Hollis or Brookline should contact the district in which the private school is located in order to make a referral for evaluation.

CrowdFunding Disclaimer

It has recently come to our attention that a number of fundraising and “crowdfunding” websites (e.g., GoFundMe, DonorsChoose) have been created to raise money for schools, classrooms, extracurricular activities, and other school-related purposes. While we support any effort to give back to the school community and support our students, unfortunately, some of these webpages use the school districts’ name and mascot to, among other things, attempt to get users to make private donations.

If you have any questions about this notice or would like to make a donation to any of the School Districts and/or their programs, please do not hesitate to contact Kelly Seeley, Business Administrator, SAU 41 (central office for all Hollis and Brookline schools) at or 603-324-5999.
