Wood County has long been considered a county with strong community and agency support for children and families. Wood Lane has consistently played a leading role in this support. Beginning at birth and continuing through adulthood, every individual receives specialized care in order to reach his or her full potential and to become contributing members of our community.
Wood Lane is not required to educate school-age children with developmental delays. Yet, they remain one of very few counties in the state devoted to continuing this valuable program. Wood Lane School provides an appropriate educational option for our children with the most significant needs. It takes only a few minutes in a Wood Lane classroom to understand the scope of the educational programming and the smiles on the children's faces are reflective of the appropriateness of the warm and friendly environment.
While most citizens of Wood County will never access the services that Wood Lane provides, these services are critical to the families who do need them. Consider the analogy of supporting fire or police services. Most of us will never need these services; however, if and when we do, they are invaluable.
Please support the Wood Lane levy on November 5th.
