Special Education

Ravenna School District provides a continuum of specialized services for our students with disabilities. Each year the needs of our students with Individual Education Plans are reviewed and service plans are developed. 

A variety of in house programs exist to meet the needs of our students with:

 Hearing Impairments
 Visual Impairments
 Speech or Language Impairments
 Learning Disabilities
 Severe Emotional Disturbance
 Multiple Disabilities
 Cognitive Disabilities
 Other Health Impairments
 Physical Impairments
 Traumatic Brain Injury


Every school district has the responsibility to seek out and identify children in need of special education services.

Once identified, a child with a disability is entitled to services provided through the district in which they reside at no cost to the family.

 For children birth-3 years of age, a disability would be an established condition known to result in a documented developmental delay.

 For children ages 3-5, a disability is considered a documented deficit in one or more of the following areas-communication, vision, hearing, motor skills, social/emotional/behavior functioning, self help skills or cognitive skills.

 For children 5-21, a disability is the identification of one or more of the following conditions; autism, hearing impairment, emotional disturbance, specific learning disability, speech or language impairment, traumatic brain injury and or visual impairment including blindness.

 If you suspect your child may have a disability or know someone else who may, please contact Jessica Haynes, Special Education Coordinator for the Ravenna School District at (330) 297-6708 ext. 3502 or email him by clicking on this link: jessica.haynes@ravennaschools.us
