EdChoice Application Period Moved to April 1

The General Assembly pushed back to April 1 the application window for the Educational Choice Scholarship Program (EdChoice), Ohio’s largest voucher program. On January 31, with a 23-6 vote, the Senate agreed to the House’s changes made to Senate Bill (SB) 120. Gov. Mike DeWine signed the bill that night.

In fiscal year (FY) 2019, that list stood at 255 buildings in 31 school districts. If the legislature fails to reach an agreement on a new plan, that list will balloon to 1,227 buildings in 426 districts for FY 2021. While an agreement between the House and Senate could not be reached before the Feb. 1 deadline, your advocacy helped stop the voucher explosion with SB 120’s 60-day extension.

Freshman School Named State Momentum Award Recipient for 3rd Straight Year

Fairfield Freshman School had all of its students - including gifted, students in the lowest 20% in achievement, and students with disabilities - show academic growth on the 2018-2019 state report card. For this achievement, the school earned a letter grade of A on all Value-Added measures, and for the third straight year recognition with a Momentum Award. The award is presented by the State Board of Education to celebrate achievements that align with the state board's strategic plan for education, "that each child is challenged to discover and learn, prepared to pursue a fulfilling post-high school path and empowered to become a resilient, lifelong learner who contributes to society."

Charlotte McGuire, District 3 State Board of Education member, will present the award at a future Fairfield Board of Education meeting to Principal Michael Berkemeier. The date of the presentation will be announced when scheduled.
