The Ohio Department of Education provided a policy clarification regarding the ratio in preschool special education classrooms during a webinar recorded on Nov. 10, 2016. While this is not a new rule or a change in policy, the Office for Early Learning and School Readiness covers questions from school leaders and educators about the implementation of the rule in this webcast recording.
Here is the November 2016 edition of the Early Learning Program Updates, which provides important Early Childhood Education information for administrators, teachers, families and community members.
The purpose of the McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program is to ensure that all children and youth, including preschoolers, have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education, as non-homeless children and youth. See more at the Ohio Department of Education's McKinney-Vento Resources for Awareness.
Soon, ALL preschool and school-age child care licensing and Step Up To Quality functions will be
done in the Ohio Child Licensing and Quality System.
A new October edition of the Early Learning Program Updates provides important information for data managers, program & school leaders, test coordinators, and teachers.
