Leonard Kirtz School

Leonard Kirtz School provides comprehensive programs and education for school age children with developmental disabilities. The content of the program is designed to provide social, academic, and vocational programs geared to the individual functioning level of each student and follows the curriculum as defined by the Ohio Department of Education Content Standards.

Certified teachers and specialists provide instruction through the implementation of Individual Education Plans (IEP). IEP goals concentrate on developing skills in communication, self-help, functional daily living, social interaction, cognitive development, vocational preparation, and vocational training.

In addition to classroom programs:

  • School-age students receive instruction in several key departments each week from certified instructors.
  • Post-Secondary (option 23) students receive vocational and independent living instruction in specialized classes.

Leonard Kirtz School offers related services in the areas of speech, physical therapy, and contracted occupational therapy to those students in need of intervention. Other related services available to all students include nursing, transportation, and case management.

It is the Board’s intent that all students who enter Leonard Kirtz School increase their cognition, and benefit physically and vocationally, so they may reach their fullest potential.

The MCBDD currently serves 72 students from 14 local school districts.
