To the South Central Community:
The 2017-18 school year is in full swing now! Hard to believe that near the end of this month marks the end of the First Nine Weeks grading period.
South Central Local Schools’ report card is available on our website as well as at this link: Report Card. Although there are several “D’s” on the report card matrices, I am excited to share that our student achievement scores continue to demonstrate a positive trend. The “B” grade on the Progress Indicator is something to be very proud of; it is a clear indicator of the growth that our students are demonstrating over a year’s time. If you have specific questions about our district, or individual building, report cards, please feel free to contact me or your child’s building principal. Teacher and staff professional development have been framed around getting a deeper understanding of the report card as well as how to continue ramping up the rigorous instructional strategies used in our classrooms.
The students remain active this fall...JH, JV and Varsity sports are keeping everyone busy; the band continues to attend area Parade of Bands performances; the musical Oklahoma! is in full rehearsal mode; FFA students have been competing in Soil CDE and Forestry CDE competitions; Teen Leadership Corp students are a-buzz working on a variety of fundraising events; Academic Challenge teams are studying hard for competitions. Be sure to check out the various school websites for additional information and success stories of our students.
I’m proud to announce that our Preschool program successfully retained its 5-star Step Up To Quality rating from the Ohio Department of Education! Congratulations to the staff that works tirelessly to ensure a quality program for our preschool students.
Check back to this webpage for periodic updates from me on the activities and successes of our school. I will attempt to provide new messages monthly.
Together we can,
