The State of Ohio, the Ohio Department of Education, and various other state-level defendants in a class action lawsuit, have reached a proposed settlement agreement. Our district is not a party in this lawsuit and has not been accused of any wrongdoing in this action. However, the Ohio Department of Education has asked all districts in the State for assistance in notifying parents and students of this proposed settlement agreement, and we are providing this information as a courtesy to the Department. The notice can be found at http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Special-Education/Special-Education-Monitoring-System/Doe-Consent-Order.
Should you have any questions or concerns regarding this proposed agreement, please contact the Ohio Department of Education directly at 877-644-6338. Thank you.
