    Search and Serve Referrals

    The Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) and the Special Education Local Plan Area (SELPA) believe one of the keys to a student's academic success is through early intervention. We are committed to seeking out , identifying and providing special education services to students who meet eligibility criteria for special education services from birth through 8th grade.  If you believe your child has a disability or is struggling to meet developmental markers, please contact our Search and Serve team at Rafer Johnson Children's Center at (661) 631-5850 or visit them at 1100 9th Street Bakersfield, CA 93304.
