We had a great first week of school! I would like to thank families, students and staff for their efforts. Despite a short four day week and a fog delay, students did a nice job of getting back into routines.
Bus drivers and students practiced emergency evacuation procedures. Students helped each other and drivers kept students organized for a safe and efficient evacuation. You can view pictures on the site, just to the left under our Twitter account.
The Ohio Department of Education released the school report card last week and has now released ratings associated with the grade card, comparing districts and schools across the state. Districts were ranked based on the following measures: Performance Index, Value-Added and Gifted. Arcanum-Butler ranked 359 out of 862 districts based on performance index, 422 out of 814 on value-added, and 102 out of 548 on gifted measures. We will continue to evaluate our strengths and work to improve areas needing improvement. I am proud of our continued accomplishments and look forward to the challenges ahead of us.
