Dover’s OSFC Opportunity First Step - ENP Plan
Dover’s OSFC Opportunity Exceptional Needs ProgramThe Exceptional Needs Program (ENP) is a building replacement program that provides school districts with the ability to protect the health and safety of their students with a new facility. The focus of the program is to identify the facilities in most need of replacement from among the eligible applicants. The program has a single building orientation, so it will not necessarily fund a district’s entire facility needs. Districts awarded an ENP building may also participate in the Classroom Facilities Assistance Program (CFAP) or Expedited Local Partnership Program (ELPP) to complete the balance of their facility needs.

Dover’s OSFC Opportunity • The Simple Truth • Modern education has outgrown some of the buildings where our children are preparing for the future. It makes a difference where they learn.The OSFC is working to ensure every Ohio student has a quality learning environment. Education has advanced to electronic whiteboards, portable computers, expandable networking and interactive video where students can communicate with students on other continents. Students are more likely to prosper where their environment is conducive to learning.
