From Heather Sage on behalf of the Montgomery County ESC and The Ohio Department of Education:
The Ohio Department of Education is developing recommendations to improve educational experiences and outcomes for students with disabilities in Ohio. They are calling on families — parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles, foster parents, and advocates — to assist in developing those recommendations.
These town hall meetings are in conjunction with our Regional Transition Fair. "It's Your Life! What's Next?". The goal of the It's YOUR Life! Transition Fair is to improve accessibility to college, employment, and life after high school for area students with IEPs and 504 Plans by bringing a multitude of resources together in one convenient place.
Each year the Transition Fair features many education and community resources available for planning and supporting life after high school. Discussion panels are led by representatives from area school districts, colleges & agencies. Students, families and educators will find a wealth of information and resources designed to help students reach their life goals.
Information is geared to students, families, and educators in Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery and Preble counties, however any and all are welcome!
