For Parents with Children with Disabilities:
Special education services are available for eligible students between the ages of three (3) and twenty-one (21). To qualify for services students must meet eligibility criteria set forth by the State of Ohio. Depending on the individual needs of the students involved, special education services may be provided within the district in the following ways: support intervention in the regular classroom, supplemental intervention in a small group (tutoring) or placement in a part-time or full time special education class.
Districts within the compact (Copley-Fairlawn, Barberton or Wadsworth) may provide these services if unavailable internally. The extent of special education services and the location of delivery are determined by the Individual Education Program Team and are based on the students identified needs through the completion of a Multi-Factored Evaluation.
