Every year, our district receives a rating on the performance of our special education program. Last year, it was renamed as Special Education Rating. The Ohio Department of Education uses final special education data that our district submits through the Education Management Information System (EMIS). This data results in one of four ratings — Meets Requirements, Needs Assistance, Needs Intervention or Needs Substantial Intervention.

Wauseon’s 2017 Special Education Rating is Meets Requirements based on the data our district submitted through EMIS for the 2015-2016 school year.


The 2017 rating assessed our performance on the following compliance measures.

·        Disproportionality in discipline rates (Indicator 4b);

·        Disproportionality in special education (Indicator 9);

·        Disproportionality in specific disability categories (Indicator 10);

·        Initial evaluation timelines (Indicator 11);

·        Early childhood transition (Indicator 12);

·        Secondary transition planning (Indicator 13);

·        Timely correction of noncompliance;

·        Submission of valid, reliable and timely data; and

·        IDEA audit findings.



Congratulations to our staff and students for this rating of high compliance and achievement.
