Ohio's State Board of Education has granted Ottawa Hills Local Schools two awards: the "All A Award" and the "Momentum Award" for performance on the 2014-2015 Local Report Card.
The "All A Award" recognizes districts that have received A's on every aspect of school performance measured on Ohio's School Report Cards. Ottawa Hills became the first school in the state to receive A's in every category of the Local Report Card. The "Momentum Award" recognizes districts that have received A's on every value-added measure included on Ohio's School Report Cards. Value added measures students' academic growth in reading and mathematics during a school year. Ottawa Hills exceeded expected academic growth in all areas measured by the state.
In awarding these honors to Ottawa Hills Schools, State Board of Education President Thomas Gunlock noted, "As a winner of these awards, both in their inaugural year, you are part of a small and very elite group of school districts. You are demonstrating high-quality teaching and leadership that result in high academic performance for every type of student. This is particularly commendable considering that you are meeting the needs of students who have diverse backgrounds and academic support needs."
Congratulations to our students, faculty and staff, administrators, parents, and community on receiving these state-wide honors!
