Welcome to Student Services

The Student Services Department oversees services for students receiving homebound instruction, Section 504 services, preschool special education, special education for school-age students, and children with limited English proficiency at Anthony Wayne Local Schools. 

Over 100 full- and part-time employees are dedicated to meeting the specialized needs of these students residing in our district. Our department goal is to ensure that all students are taught the skills necessary to be healthy, happy and productive citizens in our community.

For more information regarding our preschool program, Child Find and Section 504, Child Find and Special Education and English Language Learners please see the links at left.

English Language Learner

The ELL Program supports students whose primary language is not English. Our TESOL teacher works with elementary through high school students to improve and develop their English reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, as well as to help them adapt to their new environment and academic courses. We are dedicated to preparing them to become independent and successful both in and out of the classroom.

The ELL program is offered to students whose primary language is not English, who need help in moving from limited English proficient toward proficiency, both in the English language and in Ohio's academic standards. We are committed to helping these students transition into our district and achieve their maximum learning potential. We want to provide a safe place for learning English and learning about our schools. We will teach each student the skills that they need to succeed. We hope to work with our students', parents, and their teachers to help them meet their learning goals.
