Principal's Newsletter Minimize
 Greg Leeth, Principal

The final full month of the school year is upon us, and with the coming of May, come many exciting celebrations for students at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School; yet, there is much academic work to be done.

The second round of state testing will begin on May 5 and end on May 15. The schedule is as follows:

May 5 Gr. 7 and 8 math, Algebra I and geometry Unit 1
May 6 Gr. 7 and 8 math, Algebra I and geometry Unit 2
May 7 Gr. 8 science and physical science
May 8 Gr. 7, 8, and 9 ELA Units 1 and 2
May 11 Am. History and Am. Government
May 12-15 Make-up tests

Each of these tests will be given at the beginning of the school day, so it is important that students are on time to school and prepared for the day. I encourage students to get a good night’s rest before and to eat breakfast the day of these tests. As mentioned in last month’s newsletter, students and staff have done a tremendous job of preparing and taking the tests. I look forward to a strong finish of this year’s testing.

In celebration of student successes for this school year, we have the following awards programs planned. Senior Awards night is scheduled for May 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the cafeteria. Letters have been mailed to parents of students who are receiving awards. On May 19, the high school band and choir will perform their spring concert at 6:30 p.m., followed by an awards ceremony. Of course, the most important of the celebrations will occur on May 24 at 2:30 p.m. when we hold our graduation ceremony.

The last school day for seniors is scheduled for May 22, while all other students will finish classes on June 4. The school year has been extended due to make-up days for weather cancelations being added. May 29-June 4 are make-up days for all students except for seniors.

Senior exams will take place on May 20 and 21, and underclassmen exams are tentatively sched-uled for June 3 and 4.

I encourage all to support our students by attending the remaining concerts, ballgames, and track meets as we close another tremendously successful year at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School.


Attention: Federal Court Instructs Ohio Districts

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.

The court must receive objections no later than September 12, 2014.
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.

Questions should be directed to the Ohio Department of Education’s legal office at 614.466.4705.
