Welcome Parents!

Liberty Union-Thurston Local Schools wants to help provide information and links for parents.  Our goal is to partner with you in serving all students.
 
IDEIA
The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (https://sites.ed.gov/idea/) provides for a free appropriate public education for all individuals with disabilities between the ages of 3 and 21. Liberty Union -Thurston Local Schools provides services in accordance with Ohio's Model Policies and Procedures for the Education of Children with Disabilities.  
 
CHILD FIND
Child Find is the process of identifying, locating and evaluating all children from age three to twenty-one who may have a disability and be in need of special education and related services.  The district seeks to identify, through Child Find, all children in the Liberty Union-Thurston School District who attend a public or non-public school in the district or who are homeless or wards of the state, who may be in need of special education and related services.

If you know of a child who may have a suspected disability, including preschool age children, please contact the Student Services Office at (740) 862-4171.
