Please see the attached message from State Board of Education President Tess Elshoff:
I’m pleased to let you know Ohio’s State Board of Education has granted your district a 2017-2018 Momentum Award. Now in its fourth year, the Momentum Award is the State Board’s way of recognizing districts that received A’s on every Value-Added measure included on Ohio’s school and district report cards.
As a Momentum Award winner, your district’s report card shows your district is committed to its students’ success by ensuring students exceeded the growth expectations in English language arts and mathematics. I also congratulate you on recruiting and motivating the high-quality leaders and staff needed to make this happen.
Ohio’s strategic plan for education, Each Child, Our Future, is the state’s plan to ensure each student is challenged, prepared and empowered for his or her future by way of an excellent prekindergarten through grade 12 education. Our mission is to prepare students for a future that has yet to be written. Many consider this to be a daunting endeavor. Your education team, however, has clearly embraced this challenge.
I want you to know how much we appreciate your leadership and the dedication your team has to providing a high-quality experience for all students. Please share our gratitude with all of those who contributed to this accomplishment.
Thank you for all you do for the students and families you serve.
