Special Needs/Title I

At Switzerland of Ohio Schools, we have established a district-wide Title I program to provide educational programs and professional development in our schools. The goal of the Title I program is to help every child receive a high-quality education, particularly in reading and math, to ensure they acquire the knowledge and skills contained in the challenge state content standards. This program also strives for parent and family involvement in our schools.

There are seven Title I Teachers in our five elementary buildings, under the direction of Mr. Curtis Wisvari.

District Seeking Federal Funding Input

The Switzerland of Ohio Local School District is seeking community input regarding the
use of federal dollars for Titles I, II-A, IDEA-B, ESSER, and all other Federal Grants. These federal funds supplement the state and local dollars that also provide funding for the district's comprehensive educational services. The District's use of these funds supports the activities outlined in the District's One Plan which is available for public comment.

Title I funds are used to provide reading/math instructional intervention along with
materials and supplies, tutoring services, parent involvement activities and professional
development for staff. Title II-A funds reduce class size and provide professional
development activities to improve teacher quality. IDEA-B funds are utilized for special
education and related services for children with disabilities by supporting unique needs
as identified through an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

Any questions regarding these programs are welcomed. Suggestions regarding the use
of these federal dollars should be directed to Mr. Curtis Wisvari, Title I/Federal
Programs Coordinator at 740-795-5665 extension 5201;; or
mailed to 54685 Mt. Victory Rd, Powhatan Point, Ohio 43942 Attn: Curtis Wisvari.
