The Granville School District provides a comprehensive program of services to students ages 3 to 21 identified as disabled under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Services are provided as required by Ohio’s Model Policies and Procedures for the Education of Children with Disabilities.
Intervention assistance teams in each school assist staff and parents in providing assessment, evaluation and interventions for student needs in the general education classroom. Special education services are available for students with learning disabilities, physical, developmental and behavioral handicaps, and multiple handicaps.
If you have concerns about your child’s educational progress, you may start by meeting with his or her teacher to discuss your concerns. You may also contact the building administrator(s) or district Student Services Department.
Students needing specialized instruction and support are given an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). They are supported, whenever possible, in general education classrooms. Students may also be provided with tutoring or be placed in skill-appropriate classes. Services are provided, to the maximum extent possible, in the least restrictive environment.
The district's Student Services Department provides services based on student needs and specific support services, testing and assessment, and alternative programming. Students with more intensive needs, or very specialized needs, may be placed in programs out of the district
The district will make available its policy of nondiscrimination against persons with disabilities and inform parents of their rights under Section 504 (including the right to examine records relevant to their child and the right to an impartial hearing with representation by counsel) anytime the district takes action with regard to identification, evaluation, educational program or educational placement of a student with a disability.
Parents should contact the Director of Student Services regarding any questions related to Section 504 and/or Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Special Education Profiles
Every year, each school district receives a Special Education Profile displaying the district's performance on key indicators established by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). Some of the indicators measure procedural compliance with IDEA, while others measure results for students with disabilities.
The design of the Special Education Profile helps districts facilitate continuous improvement in their special education programs with longitudinal data. The organization of data is around four key questions that assess kindergarten readiness, achievement levels, preparedness for life beyond high school and services for children with disabilities.
This year, the department sent districts their profiles on December 20. Each district’s 2016-17 Special Education Profile is now available to the public.To protect student privacy, the publicly accessible profiles conceal results for any indicator with fewer than 10 students included in the calculation.
