Intra-District Open Enrollment
Parents interested in intra-district open enrollment for the 2016-2017 school year are invited to attend an informational meeting with Superintendent Hill on Monday, April 11, 2016, at 6:00 p.m. The meeting will be held in the Distance Learning Lab (Room 2702) at Wadsworth High School. After entering through the front doors, proceed up the stairs and to your left.
Intra-District Open Enrollment is for Wadsworth residents who are interested in having their children attend elementary buildings (Grades K-4) other than their home-base schools.
Additional information, including application date deadlines, and the intra-district open enrollment packet are available on the Open Enrollment webpage.
Attached is our exam schedule for the week of May 23rd. May 23rd is a regular school day and our exams run from May 24th - 26th. Students are only to be in attendance during the exams. If they do not have an exam they do not need to come to school. They also are free to leave after their final exam of the day. If you would like them to stay at school please contact our attendance office.
Summer School Information listed here. Registration for Summer School begins April 11th. Full payment is due with the completed registration form.
HEALTH - 1ST SEMESTER IS CLOSED
The Wadsworth Technology Department is in need of 5 full-time summer workers for up to 4 weeks this summer, from July 11 through August 5. The pay rate is $10/hour; hours of work are 7:30 a.m.-4 p.m. with a 30-minute unpaid lunch. It would be ideal, but not required, that the candidate has a valid driver’s license with their own vehicle.
Once again, we received grant funding from the Martha Holden Jennings Foundation that will make a summer STEM Camp for students who are currently enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade in the Wadsworth City Schools. Camp will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon daily at Wadsworth High School. Dates for camp will be July 25-29.
Thanks to funding from the Four Cities Compact, we will also be able to hold Computer Science/Coding Camp this year. Any Wadsworth City Schools’ student enrolled in kindergarten through eleventh grade is eligible to attend. Camp will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon daily at Wadsworth High School. Dates for camp will be July 18-22.
In order to give more students the opportunity to attend a camp this year, students will be limited to attend only one camp. If we end up with extra spots in either camp that are unfilled, a separate sign-up will be held.
Qualified candidates are being sought to fill a 9th grade boys' soccer coach position for the fall. A 7th grade grils' basketball coach and a varsity assistant gymnastics coach are are also being sought. Please send a letter of interest and a resume to Mr. Brad Musgrave, Athletic Director, at bmusgrave [at] wadsworthschools [dot] org.
The letter that follows was sent to all parents, staff, and community members on February 25, 2016 from Dr. Hill, Superintendent:
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.
The Wadsworth City School District values our collaborative community partnership with the City of Wadsworth, the YMCA, Wadsworth Public Library, Summa, WCTV and the Soprema Senior Center, all occupants of the community center on our high school campus.
When you are attending events at Wadsworth High School we ask that you please park either in the Visitor Parking Lot or the School Events/Student Parking Lot (see map here). The North and West Parking Lots are reserved for use by our community partners listed above and are not to be used by visitors to Wadsworth High School. We thank you in advance for helping us adhere to these guidelines.
