  Original Published: 10/28/2013Richland Newhope signed an Interagency Agreement Monday to help prepare teens with developmental disabilities for their working lives after graduating from high school. Newhope Superintendent Liz Prather says it's in response to Governor John Kasich designating Ohio as an Employment First state, which calls for people with developmental disabilities to be given the opportunity to work and support themselves. Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities Director John Martin came to Mansfield, and says he's impressed with what Richland Newhope is trying to do. The agreement involves all of the school districts in Richland County, Mental Health and Recovery Services, and Job and Family Services. This program will include about 130 high school aged students.
