The ODSA awarded the District $50,000 for post-secondary job training and employment programs for students with developmental disabilities.
The grant was one of 10 awarded state-wide to assist with efficiency and collaboration programs across Ohio.
The grant effort was a partnership between the District, Via Quest, and Tri-Rivers Educational Computer Association (TRECA). The program funded by the grant will provide post-secondary transition services such as career oriented job training and employment opportunities.
“We believe through the implementation of this program, Dublin City Schools will better serve our students and meet state regulations in post secondary transition planning, as well as save dollars by providing opportunities for students with disabilities to graduate and gain meaningful, paid employment within the community,” said Superintendent Dr. Todd Hoadley.
The District also received a $35,000 grant from the ODSA to assist with improving the efficiency of our printing and copying services.
“By eliminating unnecessary costs and sharing services, communities save money and become more efficient,” said David Goodman, director of the Ohio Development Services Agency.
