Board Meeting Location/Time Changed

The All-County Boards of Education Meeting that was scheduled for Wednesday, February 8 at 6 p.m. at the Medina County Career Center has been cancelled.  As a result, the Highland Board of Education meeting will remain on the same date, but the location and time has changed. The meeting will now be held at 7 p.m. in the Highland High School Media Center. 


Dear Highland Families:
As you may recall, in 2014 Highland Schools assembled a Facility Advisory Committee comprised of 30 people including community leaders, elected officials and parents to perform an extensive review of our elementary and middle school facilities. At the conclusion of that process, committee members voted and made a recommendation to the board on how to address our aging and deteriorating facilities.

Internet Safety Expert to Speak on 1/23

Parents of students of ALL ages should mark their calendars for Monday, January 23 to hear a special presentation by Jesse Weinberger, an internet safety expert and owner of OvernightGeek University. The presentation is set for 7-9 p.m. in the Highland High School Auditorium. Since 2003, in addition to consulting with school districts and law enforcement, Jesse has traveled all over the US presenting to thousands of teachers, parents and students each year. She is the author of "The Boogeyman Exists: And He's in Your Child's Back Pocket," which is a guide to keeping your children safe in a 24/7, always-connected digital society. The adult-only presentation will address current statistics, understanding access methods, cyberbullying, sexting, sexual predation and sextortion and how to become an engaged digital parent. If you are a parent of a school-age child, you will not want to miss this very informative presentation. This program is made possible through the generosity The Highland Foundation.
