AELC Receives Grant

Recently, the Arcanum Early Learning Center received an $800 grant from the Ruth Elaine Furlong Fund of the Darke County Foundation. 

This fund was established by Keith and Carolyn Furlong of Arcanum in memory of Keith's sister, Ruth Elaine Furlong, who died in 1967 when she was 16. Every year, Keith and Carolyn select one or more organizations to receive a grant from the fund, and this year they selected Arcanum Early Learning Center.

The district would like to thank the Furlongs and the Darke County Foundation for their continued support and generosity.  Thank you also to preschool teacher Mrs. Erin Fout for completing the application.  The grant will be used to purchase indoor/outdoor equipment to enhance the active learning experience. 

Greenville Federal Donates to Arcanum High School Record Board Project

This fall, Arcanum Butler Local Schools placed brand new athletic record boards in the school. These record boards were made possible because of the very generous donation from Greenville Federal. Greenville Federal, home of the Money$aver Mortgage, is the oldest bank headquartered in Darke County. This monetary donation demonstrates Greenville Federal’s pride in being a true local community bank calling Darke County its headquarters and home for the past 131 years.  Investing back to local communities has long been a trademark of Greenville Federal and with this donation, Arcanum students, parents, and alumni will be able see some of the great athletic accomplishments of their student athletes.

2014-2015 Calamity Day Clarification

For the 2014-2015 school year, the Arcanum-Butler Local School District will continue to use calamity days as they have in the past in the event of school cancellations.  Some Ohio school districts changed from a minimum number of days to the new minimum number of hours of required attendance for students.  However, the change from days to hours does not apply to collective bargaining agreements executed prior to July 1, 2014, as is the case with our school district.  The district will utilize 5 calamity days and will use make-up days and blizzard bag days as needed.

District Receives High Marks on Report Card

Arcanum-Butler was just 1 out of 3 districts in all of Darke, Montgomery, Miami, Preble and Mercer County to receive all A's and B's on recently released report card measures.

Just as every school building sends home a report card to tell you how well your child is learning, our school district and buildings also receive a Local Report Card each year from the Ohio Department of Education.  The Ohio Department of Education recently released report cards for Ohio's School Districts.  This is the second year of the new report card which is intended to give you a clearer picture of how our district and buildings are performing.  Previous report cards used superlatives such as "Excellent" or "Continuous Improvement" to describe the performance of schools.  The newer reporting system uses letter grades A-F to grade various measures under six broad categories:  Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success.
