Special education, for students ages 3 to 21, is guided by federal and state requirements. The federal requirements are referred to as the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The state requirements are referred to as the Ohio Operating Standards for the Education of Children with Disabilities (Ohio Operating Standards).
The Amanda Clearcreek Local School District is committed to high-quality education programs whereby all students are empowered to reach their individual potential, respect and value themselves and others, and become life-long learners.
GATEWAY TO SUCCESS PROGRAM
The Gateway to Success program aims to help Fairfield County high school students with disabilities who may be considering, or could benefit from, college or additional training after their high school graduation information.
The Amanda-Clearcreek Local Schools is committed to the location, identification and provision of a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE), for all children between the ages of 3 and 22, having disabilities. Location and referral of such persons (Child Find) may be initiated by any individual with knowledge of the child and suspecting that the child may have a disability.
