The Kettering City School District receives funds through the Ohio Department of Education, via the Consolidated Continuous Improvement Plan (CCIP). Monies received through IDEA-B (Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act) and ECSE (Early Childhood Special Education) are used to provide special education services to students with identified disabilities, ages 3-21. Title I funds are used for supplemental initiatives, targeted professional development, and parent involvement. Title IIA funds are used for targeted professional development based on district needs. Title III funds are used for students with limited English proficiency and immigrants. Title IV funds are used for well-rounded education initiatives, health and safety of students, and effective use of technology. All funds must align with goals outlined in the district’s CCIP.
