In case you haven’t heard, Friday’s football game against Franklin has been selected as “Goodwill Stores Drive to Victory Game of the Week” on Channel 7. 
 
What is the Drive to Victory? It’s a competition – to see which school can collect the most clothes, household items, computers, and even vehicles that will be donated to Goodwill.
 
It’s simple.

A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

A copy of the notice – which includes instructions on how parents may object to the data release – can be found here. The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12.

Students’ names, addresses and social security numbers are not part of the information to be released. Ohio is one of only three states that do not allow their departments of education to collect this data, to protect student privacy.

Data to be released for each student include student ID number, school name, grade, gender, race, age and disability category. The records also reveal student performance on the state’s Ohio Achievement Assessments and Ohio Graduation Tests, as well as tests related to Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Student suspensions and expulsions also are listed.

The data is subject to a protective order, which means Disability Rights Ohio cannot publicize it.

We would like to offer them to you at a hugely discounted price of only $20.  If you’d like a past yearbook, please email Ms. Powell at apowell@wayne-local.com.  We will gladly check to see if your requested year is available. 

Ohio will soon replace its Ohio Graduation Tests (OGT) with new end-of-course exams that better measure whether students will be ready for college or a position in the workforce.

This year, most Ohio students in grades 3-8 will take a new and different set of state achievement tests that are based on Ohio’s New Learning Standards. Both the standards and new tests reflect higher expectations for what students should know and be able to do in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The new tests also will better measure what students have learned and what they can do with their knowledge.

In grades 3-8 math, the new state tests will replace the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA).
