Good Evening, I am Steve Moore, Principal at Wadsworth High School, calling you tonight to inform you about two important upcoming meetings from our Guidance Office.
First, on Thursday, January 22, at 6:30 p.m. in the HS PAC, there will be a Financial Aid Workshop for junior and senior parents and students. A Financial Aid Officer will present information to assist you in your search for grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships. The FAFSA worksheet will be reviewed. Parents will also be given a packet of information that will be helpful in the financial aid and scholarship search process.
Second, on Thursday, January 29, our annual Course Selection meeting for parents will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the HS PAC. At this meeting, we will be discussing your students schedule options for next year.
Wadsworth City Schools has had a long-term technology goal to offer students the privilege to bring their own electronic devices to school. We have started our BYOD program at WHS, WMS, and CIS. Please click here to read the BYOD Privacy Statement for students and parents.
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!
