The Jon Peterson Special Needs Scholarship

Bishop Leibold School has been named by the Ohio Department of Education as an official provider of The Jon Peterson Special Needs (JPSN) Scholarship. This program provides scholarships to students in grades K-12 who have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) from their district. Bishop Leibold is one of only four Catholic elementary schools to be named a provider in Montgomery County, and the only JPS Catholic school located in the southern region of the county.


“We believe that this gives us the capacity to best meet the needs of the students and families that will be involved.” says Dr. Theodore J Wallace, principal of Bishop Leibold School. “We are sensitive to the challenges that families with special needs students face. This enables us to be a more personalized partner in meeting those needs.”


The scholarship will provide funding for services called for in the IEP for each student and in most cases help with tuition costs for the family.


“With the Jon Peterson Scholarship, Bishop Leibold can offer families an excellent academic education in a faith filled environment that meets their students’ special needs.” says Karyn Hecker, Regional Director of Dayton and North Elementary Schools with the Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
