Update on New Building Project

It is hard to believe that another school year is coming to a close. It has been a great year of learning and growing at the Highland Schools!

We are especially excited that our parents and community supported a bond issue to build three new elementary schools and renovate Highland Middle School, as well as an operating renewal levy. Thank you!

Since January, our teachers, administrative team, construction managers and architects have been working diligently on plans, possible land acquisition and designs for the new buildings. See timeline below.

  • January 2018:
    • GPD Group leads Educational Visioning Sessions for staff and community members
    • Superintendent & Curriculum Director attend “Future of Learning” seminar on January 18, sponsored by KnowledgeWorks
    • Board looks into possible land acquisitions for new building sites

Message Regarding School Safety & Security

Dear Parents,
As you are aware, it has been a difficult couple of weeks for the entire country and for everyone in the educational community, in particular.  Our hearts continue to go out to all of the victims and families that have been impacted and forever changed by these senseless acts of violence. 

As in the past, and after yet another mass casualty event in a school, there are calls for more stringent security measures. Conversations at the national, state and local level continue to focus on topics of gun legislation, background checks, mental health assessments, metal detectors, arming teachers, an increased police presence, response protocols, safety drills, and risk assessments…to name just a few.

Excessive Absenteeism: HB 410 Requirements

It is important for every student in Ohio to attend school every day. Missing too much school has long-term, negative effects on students, such as lower achievement and graduation rates. To that end, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410, which supports a preventative approach to excessive absences and truancy. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, several important changes have taken effect.
