WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
Families who will be approved for this program must:
Be an Ohio resident
Have a student with an IEP or 504 Plan
Be experiencing financial hardship
WHAT IF I CAN'T FIND SOMEONE?
If you cannot find a learning provider in your area that's a good fit, we encourage you to find someone through your personal networks. However, to pay them using your granted funding, they must be added to the LearningOhio website by filling out the Provider Application. You also have the option to do virtual sessions with providers outside of your area, so you are not limited by proximity.
WHAT If I have a provider in mind ALREADY?
Great! This way of using the program has been highly successful. Please have them fill out a Provider Application. They will need a current Background Check (BCI) or active ODE License.
DO MY FUNDS EXPIRE?
All funds for the 2020-2021 school year program expire on May 31, 2021. All funds for 2021 Summer Program begin on June 1, 2021 and expire on September 30, 2021.
CAN I REAPPLY?
If this program were to continue into the 2021-2022 school year, families would be alerted by email and our site would be updated with a new enrollment application for new families.
how do educators get paid?
Learning providers will be paid directly by the site administrator, only when families book using their AppointmentsPlus account. If it is not on the calendar, the family is responsible to pay for services out of pocket.
Can I or someone on my family be a provider for my student?
We do not allow immediate family members or any family member living in the same household to be paid providers through this program. We consider these “natural supports”. However, if there is a relative living in a different household, we are happy to accommodate that request as we understand many families are doing their best to limit exposure to COVID-19. Immediate family members include the student’s siblings, parents or grandparents by blood, marriage or adoption.
CAN I apply for multiple students?
If you have more than one student with an IEP or 504 Plan, please apply for each student on a separate application. You can be awarded one grant per student for the upcoming grant period.
For Summer 2021, it is $2,000 per student to spend from
June 1 – September 30.
