It has been a terrific start to the 2019-2020 school year. We are pleased to have a few new students and staff, along with another class of seventh graders, added to our returning students and staff at Wayne Trace Junior/Senior High School. I look forward to a great year as we develop our young people into life-long learners and responsible citizens.
Mr. Brock Howe is our assistant high school/junior high principal for the second year. He will continue to be responsible for the day-to-day attendance and discipline of the building and oversee the junior high students and staff. I will continue to be the principal of grades 7-12 with primary focus on the high school students and staff. Mr. Howe and I have met with all of the students and staff to explain our roles and vision for success at Wayne Trace.
The seniors in the class of 2020 are required to have taken seven “end of course” exams that the state of Ohio is provided in the following areas: English I and II, Algebra I, Geometry, American History, American Government and Biology. Each of the seven exams are scored on a scale from one to five (five being the highest). A total of 18 points is required to meet the state graduation requirement along with the credit requirements set up by the state of Ohio and our local Wayne Trace board of education. Every student graduating after 2020 will be held to the same standards.
I want to thank all parents who have completed the online forms necessary for your sons and daughters to attend Wayne Trace Jr./Sr. High School. As a reminder, we must have emergency medical information on each student. Parents, if you have not filled an emergency medical form out, please do as soon as possible. If it has been misplaced, please contact us and we will make sure you receive one immediately. Also, if you believe that your son or daughter would qualify for a free or reduced lunch, please complete the form and return it to our office.
Lastly, we will strive to provide the best possible education that the students and parents of Wayne Trace Local deserve. Raider Pride! Go Raiders!
