College Credit Plus

To all parents of students in grades 6 through 11:

New Richmond Exempted Village School District’s annual Informational meeting on College Credit Plus is Tuesday, March 15, 2016 starting at 6:00pm in the High School Theater. This is a mandatory parent meeting for any student who wishes to pursue earning both college and high school credits whether at New Richmond High School or at UC Clermont via the College Credit Plus program during the 2016-17 school year. A Representative from University of Cincinnati – Clermont will be our featured speaker. She will explain how students in grades 7 through 12 can earn college credit while in high school, and the steps toward earning these credits. Come and learn whether College Credit Plus is right for your child.

Headphones

If students need to purchase headphones, they can give $4.00 to the office. The office will write the student a receipt and put it in my mailbox, and Ms. Mills will get the headphones to the student. Then, Ms. Mills will then put the receipt and headphones in the teacher's mailbox.

Excessive Absenteeism

The New Richmond Board of Education has a “zero tolerance” policy for those students who are excessively absent and/or tardy without an approved excuse. Absences in excess of five (5) days per semester will be considered unexcused, ​regardless of parent contact,​unless a doctor’s note is received within two days of the absence. Additionally, for every three (3) tardies that a student accumulates for not coming to school on time and/or leaving early, one (1) unexcused absence will be assessed against that student’s attendance record. Absences in excess of five (5) unexcused will be sent a five day attendance warning letter. After twelve (12) days of unexcused absences, a mediation hearing will be set with a court official. Attendance that does not improve after mediation will be referred to the Juvenile Court system.

Testing Schedule (Grades 3-­6)

We are pleased to announce that the State of Ohio has discontinued the PARCC assessments for Grades 3­-6. The new state assessment, the AIR Tests, promise to be shorter in length and less stressful for students! Testing will always be first thing in the morning each day and will only last approximately 1 hour.
