The Fairview Park City Schools have received a new designation from the Ohio Department of Education.
Beginning in the fall of 2018, the ODE began identifying schools every three years based on Ohio's accountability system and provide a continuum of support for schools designated as Warning, Priority, Focus, and Independent. All four school buildings in the Fairview Park City School District have been recognized by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) as "Independent".
Jo Hannah Ward, Director of Office for Improvement and Innovation for ODE said in a statement, "Independent schools strive to continuously improve student outcomes by supporting the whole child, ensuring equitable services for all students, and creating a culture and climate that support learning."
Additionally, all buildings have demonstrated evidenced-based strategies in the following areas: curriculum, instruction, and assessment; human capital management; school climate and student supports; leadership, administration and governance.
"We're pleased that the Ohio Department of Education has recognized the efforts of our teachers, support staff, and building administrators by continually striving to improve student outcomes. We will continue to aspire to excellence each and every day," said Superintendent Dr. Bill Wagner.
