Annual Public Notice of Special Education Services and Programs and Notification of Rights Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.
The Buckeye Online School for Success 119 East Fifth Street East Liverpool, OH 43920
It is the responsibility of the Ohio Department of Education to ensure that all children with disabilities residing in Ohio, regardless of the severity of their disabilities, and who are in need of special education and related services, are identified, located, and evaluated. This responsibility is required by a federal law called the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act Amendments of 1997 (IDEA ’97).
The IDEA ’97 requires each state educational agency to publish a notice to parents, in newspapers or other media, before any major identification, location, or evaluation activity. The IDEA ’97 requires this notice to contain certain information. Another federal law, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), which protects confidentiality, requires educational agencies to notify parents annually of their Confidentiality rights. The Buckeye Online School for Success (Buckeye Online) fulfills the above duties with this annual notice.
