RE: Retirement Resignation
Dear President Terhar:
This letter constitutes my retirement resignation as State Superintendent of Public Instruction effective at 5:00 pm on Friday, August 10, 2012.
Statement of Stan W. Heffner
Superintendent of Public Instruction
August 4, 2012
Much needed components underway in Ohio’s schools are too important to let anything get in their way. Because I don’t want opponents of reform to be able to twist mistakes I’ve made into roadblocks to Ohio’s reform efforts, I’m stepping aside to deny them even the chance of doing that. Under the State Board of Education’s succession plan, starting at 5:00 pm on Friday, August 10, Michael Sawyers, Deputy Superintendent, will begin leading the Department of Education until the Board names a new state superintendent.

District and School Report Cards Lowered; Matter Referred to Office of Professional Conduct
COLUMBUS – An investigation by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has determined that the Lockland School District in Hamilton County filed false attendance data for 36 students during the 2010-2011 school year, leading to artificially higher state testing results. In response to the investigation findings the Department has revised downward the district’s report card for the year and referred the case to ODE’s Office of Professional Conduct to determine if Lockland employees participated in conduct unbecoming the teaching profession.
