Liberty Center Local Schools' goal is to ensure that all children with disabilities residing within the district, including children with disabilities who are homeless children or are wards of the state, and children with disabilities attending nonpublic schools, regardless of the severity of their disability, and who are in need of special education and related services are identified, located, and evaluated as required by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. Children with disabilities from birth through age 2 are provided services through Help Me Grow . Beginning at age 3, services are provided by the Liberty Center Local Schools.
Liberty Center Schools will strive to locate and evaluate all children with disabilities, regardless of their situations, who have significant individual needs and require intensive interventions through special education and related services.
Children who are not identified to receive intensive intervention through special education and related services, but who are performing below grade -level standards, will receive targeted instruction and supportive interventions. These may involve school and / or community based resources. These resources may include health and social services, short- and long-term counseling, case management, juvenile justice, drug and alcohol treatment, shelter, early childhood programs, faith-based resources, truancy programs, social skills programs, schooll counseling, supplemental services, after-school programs and other summer programs. All intervention are research-based or evidence-based. Preschool is available for students in the 3 to 5 year age range.
