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.
Highland Receives State 'Momentum Award'

Ohio’s State Board of Education has granted the Highland Local School District with the 2016-17 Momentum Award. Now in its third year, the Momentum Award recognizes districts that have received A’s on each Value-Added measure included on Ohio’s school and district report cards.

“This award reinforces that both achievement and academic growth at Highland is very high,” stated Superintendent Catherine Aukerman. “Our district report card for the 2016-17 school year shows our students enjoyed greater than expected growth in reading and mathematics. This accomplishment makes us part of an elite group of districts that are ensuring the academic growth of students from every background and ability level.”

In addition to the overall district award, both Granger Elementary School and Highland Middle School were recognized with individual school Momentum Awards. 

Members of the State Board of Education recognize that Highland recruits dedicated school leaders and staff and equips them with the tools they need to ensure academic growth for every child.

Excessive Absenteeism: New 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.
