Helping Children Cope
The Shady Hook Elementary School tragedy has undoubtedly left us inconsolable about the senseless loss of innocent lives. Because of these tragic losses, it is likely that the lives of families directly and indirectly impacted by the shooting will never be the same. As parents, we often we struggle with what to say to our children in times like this. Below is link to information we’ve gathered from professionals who work almost exclusively with school-age children.

Discontinuation of NCLB Supplemental Education Services
In May, 2012 Ohio was granted a waiver from portions of the federal education law known as the "No Child Left Behind Act" (NCLB). Under the waiver, Ohio’s public school districts, including Columbus City Schools, are no longer required to offer Supplemental Educational Services (SES) or Public School Choice (PSC).

While Columbus City Schools has discontinued offering tutorial intervention services under the SES program, the District will continue to provide options for students to choose a school other than their neighborhood school, through our School Choice Lottery Program. Use the link below to read the entire Notification and for details on what services will continue to be provided
