TO ALL FAMILIES OF SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN WITH A DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITY:
Disability Rights Ohio (formerly Ohio Legal Rights) has filed a lawsuit related to segregation of students with disabilities. The U.S. District court has ordered that 2013-2014 school-year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s (ODE) Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit. Information related to this order is contained in the notice. Further, you have the opportunity to “opt out” of your child's information being shared if you so desire. If you would like more information please go to ODE's website which can be found here: https://education.ohio.gov/Parents/Parents-News/Notice-to-Parents-from-Federal-Court-about-the-Rel. You may also call the Ohio Department of Education at 614-466-4705. This order does not apply to pre-school students.
PLEASE NOTE THAT, UNLIKE MANY OTHER STATES, THE OHIO DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION DOES NOT POSSESS STUDENTS' NAMES, ADDRESSES, AND PHONE NUMBERS SO THEY DO NOT HAVE THAT INFORMATION TO SHARE.

An old man was walking an ocean shoreline littered with hundreds
of starfish. He observed a young boy attempting to save them
by throwing them back into the water.
“You can’t save them all,” said the old man.
“And besides, what difference will it really make?”
The young boy picked up another, threw it in the water and said,
“I’m not sure, but I think it will make a difference to that one!”
