Survey Invitation Special Education Family Survey

Dear Parent or Guardian, The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) would like to invite you to participate in a short, 25 question survey about your involvement in your student’s education. Research suggests that parental involvement is a key predictor of positive educational outcomes. You may be eligible to participate if your child has an IEP and receives special education services. The purpose of collecting this information is to improve services for students with disabilities across Ohio. If you are eligible to participate and you enroll in the study, you will be entered in a drawing for several $50 Amazon gift cards. Your chance of winning a gift card is approximately 2.0%. Please click on this link https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_38GasERthq6j62G or use the QR (Quick Response) code (see below) to find out more about the survey and if you are eligible. Sincerely, David Julian, Ph.D. Special Education Family Survey Director (Collecting surveys on behalf of the Ohio Department of Education)

Child Find

Child find is the process of locating and evaluating children, ages 3-21, who may have disabilities and may be eligible for special education and related services. Both state and local education agencies have a responsibility under federal and state law to conduct child find so that children who need special services have the opportunity to receive those services. Parents, teachers, public and private agency employees and concerned citizens are encouraged to help the Northridge Local School District locate children who may have disabilities and who may be eligible for special education and related services. If you are aware of a child who may have special needs, please notify Michelle McJessy, Director of Special Education at (740) 967-6631, Ext. 312, mmcjessy@northridgevikings.org  or her Administrative Assistant, Jamie Bingham, at 740-967-6631, Ext. 313 or jbingham@northridgevikings.org
