SPECIAL EDUCATION CHILD SEARCH

In accordance with Public Law 93-380, all US school districts must conduct an annual search for children who have limited physical, emotional, visual, hearing, speech, or learning abilities that would make it difficult for them to learn in the regular classroom. If you know of such a child not currently attending school, please contact the Special Education Coordinator, MaryAlice Sigler at 330-223-1521. By law, all inquiries are treated confidentially.
