As we move into October, there are a few upcoming events, deadlines and announcements I want to pass along:
- In my last message, I indicated the Sponsor Annual Report of School’s Special Education and Related Services to Students with Disabilities form was posted on the Department’s website. This document was an update to last year’s form. There have been a few inquiries regarding the template, so we reposted the document as a Word document and posted a sample document to assist with completing the form.
With the passage of House Bill 21, community schools/sponsors have additional requirements regarding verification of student residency. To assist community schools/sponsors with complying with the new requirement, the Office of Community Schools (OCS) has prepared the following guidance: http://education.ohio.gov/getattachment/Topics/Community-Schools/HB-21-Guidance.pdf.aspx?lang=en-US
If you have questions regarding this guidance, please contact us at Community.Schools@education.ohio.gov

The Office of Community School - Regional School Improvement Meetings
The Office of Community Schools is excited to announce regional meetings to support continuous improvement in all Ohio community schools. We look forward to working with both schools and sponsors to improve the outcomes for all students.
Thank you for attending our TA and Sponsor Improvement meeting last week. We are reviewing the feedback from the session and will be providing clarifications/updates in the upcoming weeks based upon questions raised during the event. We understand that a lot of information was discussed at the training and will think about the format going forward.
This is a busy week for sponsors and community schools. As such, there will be several communications coming from our office this week.
