PROPERTY SALE: We had three bidders at the sale on Saturday. The highest bid was given by Charlie Kelley at $68,000. Decisions need to be made regarding whether the board wants to accept this bid or offer it up for sale with a realtor.
DISTRICT REPORT CARD: District report cards will be released tomorrow state-wide so keep your eyes opened for this information to be coming available to our community. We may get some questions about this.
RACE to the TOP UPDATE: Our district continues to work on requirements spelled out by RttT. We have utilized our Waiver Days providing professional development support on FIP (Formative Instructional Practices) for our staff as well as information regarding the new OTES (Ohio Teacher Evaluation System). Keep in mind that 50% of OTES will be a student growth measure (SGM), which for most of our NB teachers will be student learning objectives (SLO). Although ODE has been very late in offering training for staff, we are sending about 15 of our teachers to be trained in the next 2 months. This will be very important as we are required to move ahead with the implementation of OTES.
DALTON ISHMAEL: Be sure to support Dalton this weekend as he represents NB at state!!
CALAMITY DAYS: So far this year we have missed only 1 day! We shall see what tomorrow brings.
