The Special Education Department at Washington-Nile LSD had a very busy 2016-17 school year with implementing the new required ODE policies and procedures. Some of these new requirements include: the Essential IEP, The Essential ETR and a greater emphasis on our junior and senior high school student's transitions to adulthood and independence. Nonetheless, our teachers, intervention specialists, and paraprofessionals (aides) and support staff have met these challenges with absolute success. The Special Education Department at West strives to be one of the best programs in Scioto County and throughout the region, we take our jobs and our student's lives very seriously. As we reflect back on the 2016-17 school year, we invite you to join with us in celebrating our success.
