A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
Parents in Tiffin City Schools who have special needs children of pre-school age send their kids to the Family Learning Center located in the Sentinal Building in Tiffin.
Tiffin City Schools have contracted with the North Central Ohio Educational Service Center for the last 20 years to have the Family Learning Center be their pre-school option for special needs children.
A change in state funding gave Tiffin school leaders the idea to do the special needs pre-school themselves by re-opening the closed Lincoln Elementary School and saving up to $300,000 a year. This new change would take place for the upcoming 2014-15 school years.
Tuesday, outraged parents spoke out against the change, saying it would impact the development and education of their children.
School leaders, during an hour long presentation, said they had the staff and plan to make the transition smooth.
The board voted Monday to not re-open Lincoln Elementary for the 14-15 school year. Instead they voted to make the change for the 2015-2016 school year. Board members said there was not enough information given to make the change so soon.
At least one parent with a special needs child says he is frustrated by the entire situation.
"Our comfort when we first found out that our son was going to go to the family learning center, soon turned to concern once we found out he wasn't going to be going there because there was going to be no funding for it and that Tiffin was going to do that," said Brandon Amory.
