Federal Guidelines (Child Find)

In accordance with federal law, the Tiffin City Schools assumes responsibility for the location, identification, and evaluation of all children birth through age 21 who reside within the Tiffin City School District and who require special education and related services. The Special Education Department of the Tiffin City Schools coordinates this child identification process. If you know of or suspect that a child may have a disability, you may contact the Special Education Department located at the Tiffin City Schools Board of Education Office or any local school building to discuss these concerns and determine a course of action.

Title VI-B/IDEA Funds- Public Notice

Title VI-B: Special Education:

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 Mary Hill, Director of Student Services, by calling 419-455-9107, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or by email at maryl_hill@tiffincityschools.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.
