    Guidelines for Providing Services

    A new form - PR-09: Services Plan is now available. It is included in this document under Ohio Required Forms.

    The Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children (ODE/OEC) has developed Guidelines for Providing Services to Children with Disabilities Parentally Placed in Ohio Chartered and Nonchartered, Nonpublic Schools, Revised April 15, 2009. These guidelines provide school districts with information on how to implement Rule 3301-51-08 of the Administrative Code. The school district where the nonpublic school is located is responsible for the location, identification and evaluation of children suspected of having a disability and the provision of equitable services for eligible parentally placed nonpublic school children. The following index will assist you in locating specific topics within the guidelines.
