Summer Accelerated Reader

Please join us Mondays this summer at Reed Memorial Library in Ravenna to test on books read at home for AR. All students in grades K-8 have been given a summer AR reading goal. Students who meet their reading goals by testing on books they’ve read will be able to “shop” for fun prizes at the Rover store when they return to school.

The best way to become a better reader is to read every day, including in the summer!!

9:30 A.M.-11:30 A.M.

Federal Court Instructs Ohio Districts to Post Information for Parents Concerning Data Release

A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

A copy of the notice – which includes instructions on how parents may object to the data release – can be found here. The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12.

Students’ names, addresses and social security numbers are not part of the information to be released. Ohio is one of only three states that do not allow their departments of education to collect this data, to protect student privacy.

Data to be released for each student include student ID number, school name, grade, gender, race, age and disability category. The records also reveal student performance on the state’s Ohio Achievement Assessments and Ohio Graduation Tests, as well as tests related to Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Student suspensions and expulsions also are listed.

The data is subject to a protective order, which means Disability Rights Ohio cannot publicize it.

Please contact the Ohio Department of Education’s legal office at (614) 466-4705 if you have questions.



According to State Law, students can be referred for testing for possible gifted identification at any time.  If you would like your child tested for possible gifted identification, please complete this form and return it to the Rootstown Board of Education Office, care of Elaine Reynolds, district Gifted Coordinator.
