OHIO ENFORCEMENT OF THE INDIVIDUALS
WITH DISABILITIES EDUCATION ACT (IDEA))
The Ohio Department of Education soon will make changes in the way it monitors, enforces and publicizes Ohio school districts’ compliance with the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, which ensures a free, appropriate public education to students with disabilities. The actions result from the partial settlement of a class action lawsuit. For details, read the legal consent order and related public notice.
Special education means specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parent, to meet the unique needs of a handicapped child. Special education programs are provided for all children who have a handicapping disability. A disability in this instance means such conditions as: hearing impairments, visual impairments, speech or language impairments, learning disabilities, multiple disabilities, mental retardation, or other health impairments, physical impairments, autism or traumatic brain injury. Every handicapped child in Ohio is entitled to services provided by the school district in which they reside. These services include: evaluation services, diagnostic services and educational programs for all children birth through twenty-one years of age. If you know of a child who is handicapped or at risk and not receiving services, please call the Streetsboro City School District’s Student Services Office at 330-626-4900.
TITLE 1 PARENT INVOLVEMENT
Title I funds are federal funds provided to schools based upon their percentage of students who are identified as being from low income families. This does not mean that those are the only students served by Title I funds, but that is how the determination is made as to how much each school district receives. We are considered a school-wide Title I program based on a district decision. Our Title I funds pay for teacher salaries in order for us to reduce our class sizes in language arts, instructional materials and professional development and resources for teachers. Title I Parent Involvement money is used for instructional supplies and associated costs with Parent/Family Nights. The following schools are designated as Title I buildings: Streetsboro Middle School, Defer Intermediate, Campus Elementary.
VIDEO SURVEILLANCE/ELECTRONIC MONITORING
The buildings, grounds, and vehicles of the Streetsboro City School District may be under video surveillance at any time. The purpose of video surveillance is to protect Board property and assets from theft and vandalism, through deterrence and video documentation. The system is not designed nor intended to protect individuals from being victims of violent or property crimes, nor to detect other potentially illegal and undesirable activities that may occur, although information may be used as evidence in such cases. The Board recognizes that the use of a video surveillance/electronic monitoring system does not replace the need for the ongoing vigilance of the school staff assigned by the building principal to monitor and supervise the school. Rather, the video surveillance/electronic monitoring system serves as an appropriate and useful tool with which to augment or support the in-person supervision provided by staff.
