Common Core Here to Stay
You've probably heard of the attempts by some legislators to repeal Ohio's Learning Standards (a.k.a.: Common Core) and replace them with the old standards from Massachusetts until Ohio could craft its own learning standards. The latest attempt to repeal the standards has failed. You can read about it in this very brief article: http://www.marionstar.com/story/news/local/2014/12/10/legislators-may-shoot-lame-duck-common-core-repeal/20214559/. This means that we are continuing to implement Ohio's Learning Standards. Carry on.
There are lots of positive interactions going on across our district! Check out the latest Data Collection Tool outcomes to see for yourself: https://www.smore.com/pp589
