The Ravenna School District's Special Services office offers special education services to qualifying students. Special education means specially designed instruction, at no cost to the parent, to meet the unique needs of a handicapped child.

Special education programs are provided for all children who have a handicapping disability.

Every handicapped child in Ohio is entitled to services provided by the school district in which they reside. These services include: Evaluation services for all children birth through 21 years, diagnostic services for all children birth through 21 years of age and educational programs for children 3 through 21 years of age.

If you know of a child who is handicapped or at risk and not receiving service, call the Ravenna School District's Special Services Office at 330-297-6708 or 330-297-4163.
