Search for Children with Disabilities
School districts throughout the country are continually involved in an effort to locate, evaluate and identify all children with disabilities from birth through age 21. Specific eligibility criteria vary with the age of the individual, but can include delays in communication; cognitive functioning; adaptive behavior; and sensory, physical and/or social/emotional development. Please contact us if you have a child who may qualify for services from the school district.
Federal Funds Assist Students with Special Needs
Each year Maumee city Schools receives Title IDEA-B funds from the federal government to assist in providing services to students with disabilities in the Maumee school system, as well as at St. Patrick of Heatherdowns and St. Joseph's. These funds help to provide instructional and paraprofessional staff and instructional materials and supplies. They also offset tuition costs for students in specialized programs housed outside of the district.
Title I Services
The Board of Education augments the educational program of educationally disadvantaged students with the use of Federal funds. Title I funding ensures that all children have a fair, equal, and significant opportunity to obtain a high-quality education and reach, at a minimum, proficiency on challenging state academic achievement standards and state academic assessments.
