Middle School Construction

Prior to the bond issue in 2018, we asked our school community about the type of design they wished to see for replacement middle schools. Throughout the process, you told us you like buildings with contemporary details or accents that are built with traditional materials. You also told us you want the middle schools to complement the other buildings in the district but have a distinct look specific to middle schools.

The South-Western City School District has earned EVERFI’s Champion Seal, which was awarded to fewer than 5% of school districts across North America in 2020! The EVERFI Champion Seal is a designation awarded to K-12 school districts and schools that have demonstrated an exemplary commitment to whole-child education through the use of EVERFI’s evidence-informed digital programs in areas such financial literacy, social-emotional learning, college & career readiness, STEM, and health & wellness.

Ohio’s ordered school-building closure and subsequent emergency legislation (House Bill 197 of the 133rd General Assembly) have substantial impacts on the state’s accountability system and Ohio School Report Cards for the 2019-2020 school year. Ohio School Report Cards, Dropout Prevention and Recovery Report Cards and Career-Technical Planning District Report Cards all contain multiple measures that use assessment data that will not be available or may be substantially limited this year.

There will be no grades assigned or rankings issued. The tables outline the data that will be reported publicly for informational and planning purposes only. The data will not factor into any graded measures or components. Measures primarily based on the spring state tests will not have data available this year. However, some measures are based on lagged (prior year) data and will be available as noted.
