The structure and delivery of all special education programs is provided in accordance with Ohio’s Operating Standards for Children with Disabilities and the Ohio Special Education Model Policies and Procedures.
A continuum of specialized instruction and services are provided for eligible students through an Individualized Education Program (IEP) in a variety of settings, with the goal of instructing each child in the least restrictive environment. These settings include itinerant and inclusive preschool for children ages 3-5, inclusion and co-teaching in general education classrooms, tutoring rooms, resource rooms, and self-contained classrooms for students with low incidence disabilities for students grades K-12. Students are served within the district’s schools, as well as at specialized programs located throughout Central Ohio. For students placed in specialized community programs by the school district, transportation and all fees associated with the program are provided by Whitehall City Schools.
