Message from Mr. Peterson

I hope your summer has gone well!

As we begin the second month of school, I wanted to reach out to you to share my gratitude for your support and to make a district commitment to provide the best educational opportunity for your children.

This is my 45th year in education and I am just as excited now as I was 45 years ago as a new teacher in Warren, Ohio.  We have a great school district.  We all need to join hands and work together to ensure all students reach their potential.
The district has made a commitment to a philosophy called the "R-Factor".  In simple terms, it is how we respond to events to accomplish a positive outcome.  You will learn more as the year progresses.  Event + Response = Outcome.
As we dig though data from this year’s state report card, I am thrilled to share that the district’s grade card improved in every category, and we received a grade of “B”.  I am so proud of our entire staff, our parents and the students for the work they did to achieve this accomplishment.  
The decision was made to pull the 1% earned income tax off of the November ballot and put it back on the ballot in May of 2019.  This will give us more time to describe the need for the levy before we ask our taxpayers for additional funds.  Please note that as State expectations have increased, State funds have actually decreased. We have no other choice, but to go to voters.
If you are interested in working on a committee, please call my office at 740-725-5401.
