Education Opens Doors

Meeting the needs of individual children within the school environment is the philosophy of the Bowling Green City School District. Bowling Green City Schools comply with federal regulations and the State Board of Education's Rules for the Education of Handicapped Children, and take an active role in identifying children who may have disabilities. If you know a child from birth to 21 years of age who may have a disability, and who is not receiving services, please contact our Administrative Offices at 419-352-3576.

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 Ruby Watkins at 419-352-3576 ext. 4031.

Assistive Technology

The Special Education Department and the Technology Department participate in on-going collaboration in order to meet the very specific needs of individual students. Projects such as The Assistive Technology Infusion Project Grant that the district was awarded has provided text reading software for specific students. A recent project to provide iPads to the Learning Centers in our schools is serving to meet the unique, individual needs of our learners. Other assistive technology items include specialized keyboards, screen enlargements, and software programs. The Special Education and Technology Departments will continue to search for ways that technology can be used to enhance the learning of our students with special needs.
