        Lynchburg–ClayLocalSchool Districtis committed to the education of all resident children, including those with disability conditions that require special programs or services.  You can help us fulfill our desire and obligation by letting us know of children who, because of one or more disabilities, may require extra help. The term “disability” includes such conditions as hearing, speech or language, physical, orthopedic or visual impairment, learning, cognitive, and behavioral disabilities, health impairment such as epilepsy or cardiac illness and other sever or multiple disabilities.

       In order to serve disabled children, we must identify them and evaluate their needs by means of a multifactored evaluation.  Then we must meet with parents, our staff, and other professionals to determine the most appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment. 

       If you know of a child who is disabled or may be suspected of being disabled, write to the District Supervisor/Coordinator, Special Education, Lynchburg-Clay Local School District, P.O. Box 515, Lynchburg, Ohio 45142 or call 937.364.9119
        
       Funding for special education programs comes from local, state, and federal funds. Each year, we must write proposals for the use of the Federal Flow-Thru Funds. We welcome your suggestions on the best use of the federal funds to extend our services to disabled children.

Special Education

     Lynchburg-ClayLocalSchool District offers preschool services for handicapped students. Children ages 3-5 who are identified as handicapped under the guidelines of IDEIA* are eligible for these services. If you suspect our child is handicapped and would like more information on the preschool programs or any other programs, contact Lynchburg-ClayLocal School District at 937.364.2338.

      Lynchburg-ClayLocalSchool District receives funds from IDEA-Part B for use in special education programming. If you have any suggestion or input regarding the use of these funds, please feel free to contact our office with any recommendations.
