Lake County has provided employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities for over 60 years. We continue to offer a variety of employment opportunities for students and adults throughout the county.

Notice of Public Meeting on November 7, 2017 from 4 to 5 pm.
The Lake County Board of DD—Broadmoor School, has been selected by the Ohio Department of Education, Office for Exceptional Children (OEC), for a review of its special education programs and services. OEC will be in the district on November 7th and 8th, 2017 to complete this review.
Individuals enrolled in an HCBS waiver administered by the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities received an initial notification in October from the Ohio Department of Medicaid (ODM) informing them of the opportunity to voluntarily enroll in managed care beginning January 2017.
Although CES is not directly affected, July 11th is very significant day for the Adult Services program. Due to the mandate from the Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) waiver services cannot be administered in a facility that is adjacent to an institution.
WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
