Title I
   It's a federal program to help all students get a good education and meet academic standards. Title I can help the whole school.  Dawson-Bryant is a schoolwide Title I program.  This allows eligible schools to use Title I money to pay for educational programs for the whole district.  A schoolwide Title I program can offer services and programs that can help improve your child's education.  A good education can give your child a better chance of success in life.
Gifted Education
   Students in the Dawson-Bryant Local Schools are identified as gifted using a variety of instruments.  The identification process is ongoing, and students are rescreened throughout their school career for possible identification.   
   You will find helpful links and downloads regarding identification procedures, service offered at each grade level, activities for grade level supports for parents, and much more.  For more information on gifted education in Ohio, download the following documents or visit the Ohio Department of Gifted Information Home Page.
  
Homelessness
   The McKinney-Vento Homeless Children and Youth Program was designed to make sure all homeless children and youth have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education as children and youth who are not homeless.  This includes preschool education. 
   State and local education agencies are required to develop, review and revise policies to remove barriers to the enrollment, attendance and success in school that homeless children and youth may experience.     
   Dawson-Bryant Local Schools will provide homeless children and youth the opportunity to meet the same challenging state content and state student performance standards to which all students are held. 
   For more information on the rights of and services available to children and youth experiencing homelessness, please contact:  Mrs. Ellen Adkins at (740) 532-6451.

Notice of Proposed Class Action Settlement
Doe v. Department of Education   This is a notice regarding a proposed class action settlement from 1991.  The lawsuit alleged that Ohio's special education system did not provide students with a free appropriate public education and was discriminatory against students with disabilities.  The agreement addressed: (1) the way ODE monitors compliance with IDEA. (2) requests for waivers of state standards for the delivery of special education services; (3) investigation of state-level complaints filed by parents; and (4) corrective action to be taken when a school district does not meet state or federal standards.   A copy of the notice of proposed class action settlement is located on the right column under downloads.
