Nogales Unified Student Services

The Nogales Unified School District Student Services Department is responsible for many aspects of a student’s life from start to finish. Beginning with registration of new students, we handle all of the students' records and previous student records' requests. Our office handles:

  • open enrollment applications
  • all special education procedures
  • compliance issues
  • maintenance of student records
  • gifted education
  • student health concerns
  • questions regarding Medicaid
  • child abuse and neglect awareness and reporting


Our goal is to provide services and information that support and assist our students, parents, and staff. Our students come first in all we do.

Notice to Access Benefits or Insurance

Before the school district accesses a parent’s or child’s Medicaid or other publicly funded benefits (i.e. AHCCCS) for the first time to seek reimbursement for services provided to an eligible student, and annually thereafter, written notice is required to inform parents. The following documents serve as this notice.

Child Protection Forms

Child safety is top priority in our district. If necessary, please use the following forms to immediately report any suspected abuse or neglect.

Child Find

Nogales Unified School District offers Child Find screening to locate, identify, and evaluate all children who may have a disability. If you know a child who has a disability or one you suspect may have difficulty with learning, communication, vision, hearing, behavior, or motor control and coordination, please contact the special education department at 310 West Plum Street. 

NUSD screens children from preschool through high school. We refer infants and toddlers with disabilities to the Arizona Early Intervention Program for evaluation and services. All Child Find referrals are confidential and services are provided at no cost to the family.
