AURORA SCHOOL DISTRICT QUALITY PROFILE RELEASED

The Aurora City School District has released a comprehensive “Quality Profile” companion document to the Ohio Department of Education’s School District Report Card.  This “Quality Profile” features measures that help define what a quality public education looks like for our community which are not included in the State Report Card.  This was done in conjunction with area school districts and is supported by the Alliance for High Quality Education, an education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to speak for member districts on matters of educational policy and funding.

The content of this Quality Profile examines in greater depth those qualities that our community deems important for a high quality public education based on our Strategic Planning Committee recommendations and recent Community Survey. The profile content includes six categories:  Academics, Arts, Student Leadership and Activities, Fiscal Stewardship, Parent and Community Involvement and Student Services.  This document allows us to highlight these programs and reflect their community importance.

As the Quality Profile is being released statewide for the first time by a consortium of districts, it is our intention to continually update the document in order to keep residents informed and knowledgeable about our district’s educational priorities.  It will be added under “Quick Links” on our district homepage and can be found here.

“TRICK OR TREAT” 2014 DATE CHANGED BY THE CITY OF AURORA

The City of Aurora has moved the date for trick or treating from Friday, October 31, 2014 to Saturday, November 1, 2014.  The time will be from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.  Although trick or treating has traditionally been held in Aurora on October 31, this year’s Halloween coincides with the Aurora Schools' varsity football game at Kenston.  Mayor Ann Womer Benjamin said in her press release that, “Since both events are important to the Aurora public, I think we need to be flexible to accommodate both.”   For more information, please contact Tracy Humbert at the City of Aurora ~ 330-995-9126.


HOW TIME WARNER CABLE CHANGES EFFECT CABLE 9 VIEWERS

Time Warner Cable, in an effort to improve internet speed and increase bandwidth, is converting many analog channels to digital.  For some customers that will affect where you see Cable 9(channel 15) and your Community Channels(16,17).

If you have a digital box from Time Warner you will see no difference.  Cable 9 will remain on channel 15 and the Community Channels will remain on 16 and 17.

If you do not have a cable box and plug the cable directly into your TV there are 2 scenarios:

1. If you have a newerTV with a Qam tuner, you will see Cable 9 on channel 96.15 and your Community Channels on 96.16 and 96.17

2. If you have an older TV that cannot get channels 96.15, 96.16 or 96.17 you will need an analog converter from Time Warner Cable.  It is a very small box that will re-route the Qam channels back to their original location(15, 16 and 17.

If your TV remote has a decimal or dash near the numbers you may have a Qam tuner.  Enter 96.15 or 96-15 to see or Auto Program your TV.  If you cannot get channels 96.15, 16 or 17 on your television, simply call Time Warner Cable at 1 877 772-2253 to set up a free service call for a technician to come out and install an analog converter.  The converters are currently free but you will be charged $1.50 per month beginning in fall of 2015.
