Education Opens Doors-Child Find

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 419-354-0800.

Special Education Programming

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 419-354-0800 ext. 4031.
