District Report Card

The letter that follows was sent to all parents, staff, and community members on February 25, 2016 from Dr. Hill, Superintendent:

Dear Parent/Guardian(s):

The purpose of this letter is to address the release of our most recent report card from the State of Ohio; the report card is from the 2014-2015 school year.  Due to the PARCC tests that were given last year (these tests are no longer used by our state) and the time needed to receive and decipher the results, report cards were released by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) much later than usual.  The first part of the report card was released on January 14 and the second, and final, part today.
