Greetings e-School leaders and sponsors,
With recent changes to expectations for attendance and testing related to House Bills 409 and House Bill 67, the Department wishes to pass along two pieces of information:
- House Bill 409 update attendance requirements for e-schools that are not implementing a Dropout Prevention and Recovery program. The Department has prepared guidance to assist schools as they update their attendance policy to align to the new expectations.
Sponsors and Community Schools,
As a reminder, the STARS registration is open for the FY21-22 CSP Grant Application Remote Training. You can register by clicking here and entering the event name or keyword as “CSP”.
In following up to an update from our February 11th sponsor call, we wanted to inform you the public comment period is open for rule 3301-56-01, School district and building improvement, supports, and interventions.
Greetings Dropout Prevention and Recovery Community School Leaders and Sponsors,
The Department of Administrative Services has awarded Renaissance Learning the contract for administering the norm-referenced assessments as required in section 3314.017(C)(4) of the Revised Code. Community schools receiving the Dropout Prevention and Recovery report card will soon receive information from Renaissance Learning on administration of the STAR Assessments in reading and mathematics.
Greetings Community School Leaders and Sponsors,
The 2020-2021 school year presents unique challenges as all schools implement Remote Learning plans in response to COVID-19. Ensuring students who attend in-person learning opportunities have reliable access to pupil transportation is a critical factor during these unprecedented times. Currently, the only option available for a community school to provide transportation for the students for the 2020-2021 school year is to enter into an agreement with the resident district.
