Title VI-B/IDEA Funds- Public Notice
Annually, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) provides funds to states to supplement support of Special Education and related services. These dollars are intended to supplement and/or increase the services provided to disabled students. These funds will be spent to employ Special Education staff. Any funds not spent on salaries will be used toward the excess cost of educating special needs students.
Tiffin City Schools welcomes community feedback and input into how these funds should be best utilized. Input, questions, and comments may be directed to Mr. Jeremy Koppus, Special Education Supervisor, by calling 419-455-9107, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage communication about improving the services provided to all students with special needs and the use of the funds allocated to the support of any and all Special Education services. Information will be shared at the February Board of Education Meeting.
