Ohio Dept. of Education honored 141 schools with distinction this year

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Nearly 150 Ohio schools were recognized on Wednesday by the Ohio Department of Education for sustaining high academic achievement among their students, including many from economically disadvantaged homes.
According to spokesman John Charlton, the Department named 141 Schools of Promise in its report. In our listening area, eight schools were honored as Schools of Promise: in Guernsey County, Buckeye Trail High School was honored for a fourth year; in Belmont County, Barnesville Elementary School, Bellaire Middle School, Bridgeport High School, and Anna Marie Ayers Elementary School were honored; and in Muskingum County, Philo High School, Maysville High School, and Tri-Valley Middle School were named as Schools of Promise.
The Schools of Promise award program recognizes schools attaining solid student achievement in reading and mathematics while serving a significant number of economically disadvantaged students.
State Superintendent Dr. Richard A. Ross said that “Schools of Promise are examples of what can happen when principals, teachers, parents and community members all believe that children can learn." He added, "These schools overcome challenges, sometimes significant challenges, to provide a high-quality education to Ohio children."
