Principal's Newsletter Minimize

 Greg Leeth, Principal

Can you believe it? We are rapidly closing in on the end of the first semester. If you have not had the opportunity to do so already, I encourage you to call or email your child’s teachers to introduce yourself and to involve yourself in his or her edu-cation. The teachers at Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School welcome parent communication.

We have some tremendously talented students in our student body whose abilities were show-cased recently. Once again, I would like to extend my appreciation to Mrs. Joni Wenninger, Ms. Sharon Spinner, and Miss Mallory Diamond for the outstanding Fall Arts Festival held Novem-ber 8. For those who missed it, there was food, artwork displayed, and musical performances by the band, choir, and Heartland Jazz Quintet. I encourage you to make a priority of getting to next year’s Fall Arts Festival. It truly is an out-standing evening of entertainment.

I also want to thank the social studies depart-ment and music department for the Veteran’s Day Assembly held on November 11. More importantly, I want to thank the local veteran’s for their service to our country and for attending our program. If you have not attended a Veteran’s Day program at the jr./sr. high school, I encourage you to join us next year.

On November 26, the National Honor Society will conduct its annual induction ceremony. The program will begin at 1:40 p.m. in the junior high gym. I count this celebration of academic achievement as one of the two most important days of the year. The most important, of course, is graduation.

Usher in the holiday spirit by attending the upcoming band and choir Christmas concerts. The high school will perform on December 12 at 7:00 p.m. and the junior high will perform on December 15 at 7:00 p.m. The concerts will be held in the high school gymnasium.

Lastly, I want to congratulate the fall athletes and coaches for another incredibly successful season. The time and dedication you have displayed in representing Wayne Trace with class and dignity, whether win or lose, will long be remembered by those who watched you compete.


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.
