Highland Makes 8th Annual AP Honor Roll

Highland Local School District is among 447 districts across the U.S. and Canada to be named to the 8th Annual AP District Honor Roll by the College Board. This is the fifth time that Highland has received this honor, which recognizes districts for simultaneously increasing access to Advanced Placement (AP) course work while increasing the percentage of students earning scores of 3 or higher on AP Exams. Reaching these goals indicates that these districts are successfully identifying motivated, academically prepared students who are likely to benefit from rigorous AP course work.

Winter Weather & When It's Necessary to Close School

We understand that the decision to open or close schools, offer a two-hour delayed start, or resort to an early release in bad weather has an enormous effect on all of our families. The following information may help you to better understand the process we use when making these types of decisions, which are based upon a careful analysis of all relevant factors, such as:

  • Information on road conditions from transportation staff, local law enforcement and road crews (as warranted); we must give careful consideration to the most dangerous roads in the District; they can be treacherous, even if your road or street looks clear.
