Child Find Notification

SPECIAL NOTICE: The Groveport Madison Local Schools have received notice of their receipt of Federal flow through IDEA-PART B of the Education for the Handicapped Act. The maximum entitlement for the school district this year is equal to the number of resident handicapped children ages 3 through 21 who were provided full and appropriate special education programs by the Groveport Madison Local Schools based on the December 1, 2017, child count. Suggestions regarding the expenditure of these funds may be directed to Mitzi Boyd, Director of Special Education, 4400 Marketing Place, Suite B, Groveport, Ohio 43125, or by calling 614-492-2520. The first priority for the expenditure of these funds must be to provide direct services to Handicapped Children.
School districts across the State of Ohio are participating in an effort to identify, locate, and evaluate all handicapped children between the ages of 3 and 21. A handicap is defined as a condition such as hearing impairment, visual impairment, speech or language impairment, learning disability, behavioral, multiple, or severe handicaps, mental retardation, autism, and other health impairments. Many handicapped children are not visible because they do not function in the mainstream of the community. Also, many unidentified handicapped children are preschoolers. Parents may not be aware of the programs and services available. If you know of a handicapped child, please write to Mitzi Boyd at Groveport Madison Local Schools at 4400 Marketing Place., Suite B, Groveport, Ohio 43125, or call 614-492-2520.

Individuals who are found to have engaged in unlawful harassment will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.

Federal Transparency in Coverage Disclosure

Federal Transparency in Coverage (TIC) regulations require health insurers and group health plans to create machine-readable files (MRFs) that contain the negotiated rates for in-network providers and allowed amounts derived from historical claims for out-of-network providers and make those files publicly available.

These files follow the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) defined layout and are in the CMS-approved format (JSON), and are not meant for a consumer-friendly search of rates, benefits, or cost-sharing. These files will be published on and will be updated on the first day of each month.
