Update From the Superintendent

Dear Parents of East Clinton Schools,

We are off to a great start at East Clinton. On behalf of all the teachers, administration and the board of Education, THANK YOU for all you do for the students of the district.

There have been several changes as we move in the new year that are all designed to ensure students are receiving the best education, yet at the same time, being sure that the funds that this community has entrusted to our care are used in the most efficient way. We are in the process of working out issues within a couple of the changes and will continue to monitor them, always adjusting to provide the most effective and efficient system.

One such change is an update of the security systems our buildings have in place. Over the summer, a remote access system was installed in each of the four buildings. The elementary buildings previously had such a system, but they were upgraded. For the high school and middle school, this is a new feature. Anyone wishing to enter the buildings during the school day will be granted access by the office personnel. When you press the button for admittance, you will be asked to identify yourself and the reason for your visit. While this can be an inconvenience at times, the safety it provides for our students in session is greatly enhanced.

Again, thank you for all you do for East Clinton. Go Astros!

Important Update from the Ohio Department of Education

A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit. 

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

A copy of the notice – which includes instructions on how parents may object to the data release – can be found here. The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12.
