We are participating in Career Connections! The goal of this program is to provide connections between classroom learning and future career possibilities. Throughout the school year, students will participate in a number of Career Exploration activities. These will include field trips, guests speakers from local businesses and exercises completed on Naviance and much more! See the attached file at the bottom of the page for more information.
In an effort to serve young people with disabilities, Mapleton Local Schools is continually in the process of locating and evaluating children from birth to 21 years of age who are suspected as having a disability. Disabilities may include developmental delays, health impairments, autism, and traumatic brain injury. Individuals may contact local school districts about children who may have a disability and may be eligible for special education services. District superintendents have information available about special education policies and procedures in each building by contacting the building principal. If you have questions about the above-mentioned process, please call Morgan Lengacher, Director of Special Education, at 419-945-2188 ext. 8182 or Shelby Ortiz, Curriculum Director, at 419-945-2188 ext. 8180.
By law, public schools must inform parents and eligible students of their rights to consider application to the Ohio Department of Education’s Autism Scholarship (for students identified with autism) and the Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship Program (for students identified with an educational disability other than autism). These scholarship programs offer parents and eligible students a choice to seek educational services from an approved provider rather than their home school district.
