The annual Harmon/Leighton Magazine Sale begins Tuesday, August 26, 2014 and runs through Wednesday, September 10th.  This yearly fundraiser supports many student-based activities and competitions.  In addition, Harmon’s field trip fees for 6th & 8th grade will be reduced by a portion of the school’s profits.  All students in the same grade will benefit from that particular grade’s total sales efforts so this is truly a team effort.  Prizes will still be earned on an individual basis. For more detailed information click on ”Read More” below.

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.
