A message from the Superintendent...
All In for Excellence!Starting a new school year is always a great time of the year. Students are excited for their classes to begin and returning to their clubs and sports. The staff is looking forward to seeing our students take part in the programs and offerings that we offer this new school year. This year we are ALL IN for Excellence!This year, we expanded our technology integration across the district to provide additional support for our students and staff and increased the ways they collaborate with technology inside and outside of the classroom. New this year is Project Lead the Way (PLTW) at the high school and middle schools. PLTW focuses on the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. Through this program we are able to offer courses such as Biomedical Innovation, Human Body Systems and Automation/Robotics. A new sign language class is being offered along with additional sections of digital arts and photography. All of these opportunities will help prepare our students for the world ahead.In elementary news, we are proud to announce that our Bright Beginnings Preschool was awarded a five star rating through the Step Up to Quality program. The Step Up to Quality program is part of the Ohio Department of Education and recognizes learning and development programs that meet quality standards. The ratings are based on several areas including curriculum, staff support/management, engagement, child assessment and class size. The five star rating is the highest rating possible and really shows the excellent job our preschool staff does each day!Please consider joining us at one of many events held at our schools!
