Child Find

Each year school districts throughout Ohio participate in an effort to identify, locate and evaluate all children, birth through age 21, with disabilities such as multi-handicaps, hearing, visual, orthopedic, social/emotional, health conditions, and/or speech/language handicaps. Anyone aware of a child residing in the Dover City School District who may have one or more of the suspected disabilities, including preschool-age children, should contact Gina Franks, Director of Special Education, at the Dover Schools' Pupil Services Office at (330) 364-7124.

ARP ESSER Requirements

The American Rescue Plan (ARP) provides federal resources to support states and local school districts. Recent federal guidance clarifies that districts submit to the state of Ohio a plan that fulfills the requirement that districts publish local “Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plans.” 

Each district school should then post the plan on its local website and then submit the plan to the Ohio Department of Education by June 24, 2021. This overall plan is being built upon existing district plans that address many of the elements of the federal requirements. That plan, as submitted, is available here:

During his Feb. 9, 2021, press conference, Governor DeWine asked schools and districts to work with their communities to help students advance and make up for any learning that may have been lost or delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic. He requested that schools and districts design plans to meet the needs of students that could include, but are not limited to, ending the school year later than scheduled, beginning the new year early or extending the school day. Summer programs, tutoring or remote options also could be considered. The governor asked schools and districts to provide their plans to the public and General Assembly no later than April 1.  That plan, as submitted, is located here:
