In an effort to serve young people with disabilities, school districts in Ohio are in the process of locating and evaluating children from birth through 21 years of age. Disabilities may include developmental delays, health impairments, autism and traumatic brain injury.
Individuals may contact local school districts about children who may have a disability and may be eligible for special education services. For more information, please contact the Student Services Director, Karrie Calzo, at 330-893-2610. By law, all inquiries are treated confidentially.
East Holmes Local Schools applies annually for Federal grant monies which are used in six of the elementary schools for the purpose of student centered reading and mathematics remediation programming. Federal Funding is variable in nature from year to year, as numerous factors go into determining final allocations in the regions of Title I, Title II-A, and Title III. Items such as state and local poverty levels, district student enrollment numbers, and district English as second language percentage students, are considered as the state determines the districts total allocation. Public views are sought on the proposed budget for the expenditures of Federal monies granted to the East Holmes Local School District through the Ohio Department of Education. Residents of the East Holmes Local School District are asked to direct any budget inquiries for Federal Funds to Jon Wilson, Federal Programs, Curriculum, and Testing Administrator at 330-893-2665.
Funding allocated to Title I supports students in reading and math through the employment of building Title I teachers.
Monies noted as Title II-A provides high quality research-based professional development initiatives for district staff.
Funding from this grant implements strong language development programs for the district's English Language Learners.
