Changes In Cafeteria Computer System

In early October, the Arcanum-Butler cafeteria will be switching to a new point-of-sale system called Mosaic.  Students will be bringing a letter home explaining the changes on September 18th.  The new software is an updated version of the current Lunchbox system.  The change is needed because the Lunchbox system is no longer able to be updated to work with current technologies.  The district believes that the upgrade to Mosaic will be helpful to parents and students in the district.

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.

Expectations, Values, and Performance - The Trojan Way

This year the Arcanum-Butler Local School District will be implementing "The Trojan Way" in an effort to provide clear, consistent expectations for all Prek-12 students.  The Trojan Way represents excellence and how our district and those who make up our district represent our school and community.  It is the belief that Arcanum-Butler Local Schools will provide the best school experience in our county and region for students to grow and learn in preparation for life.  Our students will exhibit Trojan Pride and represent their families and our school in the classroom and in extra-curricular performances and competitions.  The Trojan Way means High Academic Expectations & Achievement, a Set of Core Values, and a High Performing Staff!   The Trojan Way will be present in all that we do and evident in the actions of our students and the actions of our staff. 

The District Leadership Team identified key expectations for success, a set of core values and positive teacher traits.  Check them out under our Mission Statement and help us out by supporting The Trojan Way!
