Special Education Program Earns Highest ODE Rating

Each year, school districts in Ohio receive a Special Education Rating from the Ohio Department of Education. This rating evaluates the performance of special education programs. The compilation of data submitted to the State results in one of four possible ratings: Meets Requirements, Needs Assistance, Needs Intervention, or Needs Substantial Intervention.

Keystone Local Schools 2021 Special Education Rating is “Meets Requirements.” This is the 4th year in a row the district has received this rating. Nikki Campbell, Director of Pupil Services, stated, “Keystone’s special education staff has established a trend for excellence in providing services for our students with disabilities.” Campbell adds, “The credit for this rating goes to all our staff members-both gen ed and special ed- who work collaboratively to make education accessible for each and every student here at Keystone.”
