Special Education School-Age Program

The Bowling Green School District provides school-age programming for children 5 through 21 years of age. Through collaboration and utilization of a team approach, the educators of Bowling Green Schools create and implement programs specific to the needs of each child. If you know a child between the ages of 5 through 21 who may have special needs, please contact Ann Sommers at 419-352-3576 ext. 4031.

 

Gifted Services

The Bowling Green School District believes in the intrinsic worth of every individual and holds that education is a vehicle by which every individual may advance toward his/her potential. Our students have the potential for outstanding accomplishments to self and society in widely varying fields. The Bowling Green School District provides differentiated activities and opportunities through which students discover and develop their unique and individual needs, interests, abilities, and talents.

 

Preschool Program

The Bowling Green School District provides a preschool program for children with special needs. The preschool classes are taught by certified teachers and follow a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Each class is held for 2 1/2 hours, Monday thru Thursday. The classrooms are housed at Crim Elementary School. If you know a child between the ages of 3 and 5 who may have special needs, please contact Emily Mennitt at 419-352-3576 ext. 4034.

An important part of the preschool program is the involvement of peer role models. Children participating as peers must be between the ages of 3 and 5 (before September 30) and must demonstrate typically developing skills. There is a fee for this portion of the program. If you know a child who would be appropriate as a peer for the children with special needs, please contact Emily Mennitt at 419-352-3576 ext. 4034.
