Worthington Schools

Absolute Excellence - Exponential Impact

Worthington Schools provides a continuum of services to students ages 3 through 21 identified as disabled under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act.
Services are provided in accordance with Ohio’s Operating Standards for Ohio's Schools Serving Children with Disabilities.
The continuum of services includes Intervention Specialist Consultation, direct or support services provided by the Building Intervention Specialist or, support or direct services in the more restrictive placement in a District learning center. Students with more intensive needs may be placed in programs out-of-district.

The Parent Mentor Program through the Worthington City School District offers support, information and resources to families and students receiving special education services and the professionals who serve them.

The program strives to promote strong relationships between parent and school personnel through effective communication and knowledge of special education services.  We recognize that when family and schools work together as a team, the child benefits by receiving the most appropriate services for learning.

If you have any questions or need assistance, please feel free to call the Parent Mentor Office at 614-450-6044 or e-mail me at mvangilder@wscloud.org.  I am available to attend IEP and ETR meetings, locate resources, discuss concerns assist with transitions, future planning and as always…celebrating with you, your child’s success and accomplishments!

I look forward to working with you!
