Greetings Sponsors and Community School Staff,
With the second half of the school year well underway, the Office of Community Schools wants to share some reminders:
- 2020-2021 Sponsor Evaluation Tools posted for feedback: The 2020-2021 Sponsor Evaluation draft tools are posted and available for public comment. The Ohio Department of Education is collecting feedback through surveys that will remain open until 4:59 p.m. on March 3.
- Community schools requesting to change sponsors: Schools requesting approval from the Department for a change in sponsor due to low performance, as prescribed by Ohio Revised Code 3314.034, should have the school administration and governing authority access and follow the technical assistance documents here. Please note, the submission date was updated to Feb. 15, and we have clarified how academics will be reviewed for e-schools (specifically identifying the 10 districts that will be used for comparison).
