OCECD Updated Analysis of Ohio’s Special Education Weighted Funding Formula May 2014
This Ohio Coalition for the Education of Children with Disabilities (OCECD) 2014 special education funding and policy analysis is the third update to our original
2001 report, Special Education Finance in Ohio: Analysis and Recommendations. This initial report served as the basis for Ohio’s current six-weight, cost-based, special education funding system, which provides educational services for Ohio’s nearly 220,000 students with disabilities. It’s a system that continues to garner solid support from state policy makers and education stakeholders, including OCECD. Click Here for the report

Parents and professionals are invited to attend this event that will help
participants reconsider the “problem kids” in their own high schools and spark new conversations about an education revolution that’s about empowering– not overpowering –our most emotionally and behaviorally challenged youth.
Kelsey Carroll has one goal – to graduate from high school – and plenty of reasons why she shouldn't. She attends a school with one of the highest dropout rates in New Hampshire and has dealt with homelessness, abuse, and ADHD. As a freshman, she didn't earn a single academic credit, but she did get suspended for dealing drugs. 'Who Cares About Kelsey?' is the story of Kelsey's transformation from a defiant and disruptive “problem student” to a motivated and self-confident young woman.
Certificates with contact hours will be available. Counselor, Social Worker and Marriage & Family Therapist Units and Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Continuing Professional Development Units are pending approval.
There is a $10 conference fee.
