Keeping You Informed

October 6, 2016

We are writing to inform you that late last night two men were found on the roof of Holmes Elementary. Our night custodian heard the noise and notified the Sycamore Township Police Department. Should the need arise, we will provide you with an update, but at this time there is no risk to our students or staff.

Continuing our series of releases on the annual report card, today we would like to help you better understand the K-3 Literacy component of the report card.

Here’s how you can help!

Continuing our series of releases on the annual report card, today we would like to help you better understand the Progress component of the report card.

Last week, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) released their annual report card grading all school districts across the State of Ohio. The Ohio School Report Card measures six different components. To help you gain a better understanding of each component, we are going to send out a series of releases to summarize each component and the measures they include.

The district wants to ensure our community’s voice is heard regarding Ohio’s implementation of ESSA. The Ohio Department of Education will be hosting several ESSA stakeholder meetings – with one in Cincinnati scheduled for 5:30 to 7:30 PM, Thursday, Sept. 29.
