By law, public schools must inform parents and eligible students of their rights to consider application to the Ohio Department of Education’s Autism Scholarship Program (for students identified with Autism) and the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program (for students identified with an educational disability other than Autism). These scholarship programs offer parents and eligible students a choice to seek educational services from an approved provider rather than their home school district.
Additional information may be obtained from the Ohio Department of Education website, www.ode.oh.state.us under the heading “School Options” and “Scholarship Programs” or Director of Special Services, Mrs. Tricia Green, who may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
