Under provisions of public law 101-476, the public school systems in Lawrence County have announced that they have received application forms for the Title VI-B Flow-Thru and preschool funds.

These funds are required to be used to facilitate programs for children with disabilities.

Applications are required to be turned in to the Ohio Department of Education and will be approved for funding during the summer months. The funding level for each child with a disability will be determined once Congress has approved the reauthorization of I.D.E.A.
