I’m writing this afternoon for two (2) reasons. First, as a reminder that there is no school this Friday, October 17 for all students in our district ( grades K-12). This is a planned day off per our Board approved school calendar.
Second, with the news today that a health care worker from Dallas, who has contracted Ebola, traveled to the Northeastern Ohio region this past weekend, I want to provide an update on what we know and how our district is
The Ohio Department of Education released the 2013-2014 state report card for each district and individual school building throughout the state. This is the second year of the “new” state report card format, which involves different components being graded on a scale of A-F. There currently is no overall grade for a district or building. To put the “new” format in some type of context, if we compare our most recent results to the “old” state report card format, our district would have achieved the highest rating of “Excellent with Distinction” based upon the previous calculation format.
Effective June 1, 2014, registration of all students, regardless of grade level, will be completed at the Charles R. Parsons Administration Building, 524 Broad Street (330-336-3571). Parents/Guardians registering their student(s) may complete the required paperwork (available online) and bring it to Mrs. Linda McCann, Dept. of Instruction, at the Charles R. Parsons Administration Building between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. For those parents without online access, forms will be available at the administration building. The enrollment brochure will provide information about the items needed for enrollment as well as useful information for all newly registered students. Welcome to Wadsworth City Schools!
Wadsworth High School and Isham, Overlook and Valley View Elementary Schools have received Gold Level LEED Certification. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a point-based system where building projects earn points for satisfying specific green building criteria. Within each of the seven LEED credit categories, projects must satisfy particular prerequisites. LEED certification offers third-party validation of a project’s green features and verifies that the building is operating exactly the way it was designed.
