Message from the Superintendent

      As we embark on the season of giving, I am hopeful each of you can share your time and your blessings with those you love.  The winter holidays is always a great time to pause and reflect on the past year while trying to avoid all of the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives.  It is a great time to spend such precious time with your family and loved ones in your life.  As we approach 2019 with open arms, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the amazing people who make our program successful.  The Muskingum County Board will be forever grateful to this community for all it does for individuals with developmental disabilities and their families.  We are creating many exciting success stories and great memories all the time and we will continue making them in the next year.  Our partnerships with the Muskingum County community make the holidays for the individuals and families we support brighter this season.  

        With the colder weather comes cancellations and delays.  We want to remind individuals and families that in addition to monitoring the local media sources we have also incorporated a One Call Now System to help receive instant information regarding closings and delays for the Starlight School.  If you have not updated your information I encourage you to do so.  Please stay safe out there this winter.  Happy holidays everyone! 

We welcome you to not only visit our website at, but also to visit our facilities.

Please feel free to contact me via phone or email if you have any questions.


Kellie Brown, Superintendent
