District Resources

Connecting Schools with the Resources in the Area

Need help connecting students and parents to resources?

You are at the right place. This webpage is for districts to find the right resources to connect their students and families. This page was created because of the CARES project which was to identify, engage, support, and ultimately meet the needs of Ohio’s most vulnerable students and their families.

What are the seven vulnerable population groups?  Listed below are the seven vulnerable population groups that the federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) created because these groups are perceived to be disproportionately affected by COVID-19 and other systemic factors that negatively impact educational achievement.   Our Family and Community Liaison was able to identify gaps in services that students and families need to be successful and put in this document.   While it may not have every tool possible, it does lead our families and students to resources.
