These percentages are inflated due to Carroll being such a small town and school (only 500-600 students enrolled at the high school). That being said their are certainly issues that need to be fixed with Carroll's Special Ed program. The school has always had problems because they never qualify for government assistance and the citizens shot down levy after levy for 2 decades. They finally passed one during the last election so lets hope that new facilities eventually bring higher standards and an infusion of new and more qualified staff.

Actually, it is low, compared to state and national averages. BTW, students are not "special ed." They may HAVE special needs or disabilities.
I am using the words chosen by the editor for the headline. Don't get all MRDD'd about it.

That explains why the fruit loop Sp Ed coordinator resigned last month.

If they don't like this school go get a voucher. Good luck with that one! I'd like to see a special needs child find a charter school, or better yet pay for it yourself- your the one with the child-that's just the way it is and get used to the new education system under your new governor- I sure as heck didn't vote for him

I am shocked how uninformed most of you are. This school is given thousands of tax payer dollars per reported Sp Ed student Mace has not been using that money for them. This is fraud and someone might be going to prison.

Well, nobody was punished years back when the Superintendent Watkins and board members were breaking the Sunshine Law. Why would you think anybody would be punished today? With a Good Ole Boy situation there they don't gots to worry.

Ditto to "bulldog drummond" and "Scratching head." Unbelievable how uninformed most of you are about spec ed funding. Their dollars come from the Feds for those kids. As far as the "Downs kid" - that sure isn't the way you talk about someone with a disability. It should be "the kid with Downs" - he/she is a person first. I hear plenty of good stories about kids like that doing fine in regular classes and its their right. What's the big deal? Is it one kid or more? All of them should be allowed to be with regular kids. What do you think is going to happen when they leave school and go to work? Is their boss gonna make them use a different drinking fountain or bathroom? Those days are long gone. You guys in Ohio need to get on the same page as everyone else - its 2011 afterall.

This district has gone years unpunished for their bad behavior. However there are finally some that aren't afraid to hold them accountable and hopefully the Good Ole Boy situation will be a thing of the past - very soon!

It has nothing to do with the new building, but everything to do with the parents and tax payers that are finally speaking up. As a result ODE and other agencies are looking more closely into the inappropriate behaviors and community members are demanding accountability.
