 Greg Leeth, Principal

We are over half way through the first grading period at the junior/senior high school, and students and teachers are adapting well to the implementation of laptop computers for deliver-ing instruction and assessing student learning. Recently, I informally polled an English class about the use of their laptops. Students in the class claimed to be using their computers to com-plete 75% of their homework. The benefits they spoke of include the ease of use and the effi-ciency the laptop provides to complete assign-ments. I am excited to see students developing real 21st century skills that will serve them well after the graduate from high school.

Please be reminded that the laptop computers are school issued and must be well cared for. Four students have had cracked screens replaced on their laptops. Screens will crack if students close the laptop lid when objects are on the key-board. Students should be careful not to close lids on earbuds or headphones and should not stuff papers under the lid of the laptop.

Parent-teacher conferences will be held October 29th and 30th. Please be sure to take advantage of this scheduled time by scheduling conferences with your child’s teachers. Of course, I always encourage parents and teachers to communicate with each other throughout the school year, don’t hesitate to call or email your child’s teacher if you have questions or concerns.

Juniors who are interested in taking the PSAT, a standardized test cosponsored by the College Board and National Merit Scholarship Corpora-tion, should contact the guidance counselor’s office to sign up. The test, which provides stu-dents scholarship opportunities and provides feedback on college readiness, costs $14 and will be administered on October 15th.

 The fall testing window for junior and senior students who have not passed one or more sections of the OGT begins October 27. Current 10th-12th graders must pass all five sections of the test to graduate from high school. Students who do not pass the fall test will have additional opportunities to take the test in the spring and summer.

Lastly, I want to thank the community for the tremendously positive start to the school year. We have much to be proud of at Wayne Trace Local Schools, and you are an integral part of our success!

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.
