Transportation Letter to Parents Transportation Letter to Parents

Dear Parents,

           Welcome back to school! We hope everyone had a great summer and are looking forward to enjoying a great school year. We would like to thank you for giving us the privilege of transporting your children.

           We would like to remind you to get any changes in your child’s transportation schedule to us no later than 2 working days before the first day of school. Any changes received later than that will require 48 hrs to be put in the system and to allow us time to get the information to the drivers.

           We will make every effort to pick up your children at the times listed; however, please keep in mind these are approximate times. We would recommend having your child in their place of safety 15 minutes earlier during the first two weeks of school. After everyone has adjusted to the new school year we ask that you have your child in their place of safety 5 minutes prior to the bus arriving per (O.A.C. 3301-83-13) set by the State. Also please remember to expect your child home about 10 to 15 minutes later than usual the first two weeks of school.

           Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns you may have. We can be reached at 937-964-1672.

 

Sincerely,

Transportation Director

Neal Shambaugh

"Opt Out" of State Testing "Opt Out" of State Testing

February 17, 2015

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are aware that there is a growing movement where some parents/guardians are considering the decision to allow their children to “opt out” of state testing.  However, as a district, Northwestern encourages all parents/guardians to allow their children to participate in state testing for several reasons.  

Please know that we value your involvement in the educational process and want to ensure that you have the following information about testing.

State and federal laws require all Ohio school districts to administer tests in specific grades and courses to all students. While there is no law or official state procedure that allows parents or students to opt out of testing, we understand your concerns and respect your rights as a parent.

However, we do want to make sure you are fully-informed about the possible consequences of opting out of testing. First and foremost, data is a valuable tool our educators use to make decisions for your child’s education. The data collected from state-approved assessments such as PARCC, in addition to classroom assessments and assignments, is used by our teachers and administrators to help your child be successful in school. The information provided to our teachers from PARCC can be used to decide placement in advanced courses, interventions, differentiated instruction, and instructional practices to ensure that we are providing all students with a high-quality education. Although we will have data from other sources that we can use, we believe that the PARCC data is a crucial piece of this information.

The Ohio Department of Education also provides the following potential consequences of opting out of testing for students, districts, schools, and teachers:
