The North Canton City School District, Special Services Department, is excited to offer to our students and their families an opportunity to attend a transition tour for those students currently receiving specialized support (IEP and 504 Plan) services and who will be transitioning to a new building during the 2018-2019 academic school year. This includes second grade students with a current IEP or 504 Plan who will be transitioning to third grade at either Greentown Intermediate or Orchard Hill Intermediate and fifth grade students with a current IEP or 504 Plan who will be transitioning to the sixth grade at the North Canton Middle School. The tours are intended to allow students and their families the possibility to visit and explore the new school and meet and greet with staff members at each building in an informal and personal environment.
