SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) - Springfield City Schools did not fare well on Ohio's School Report Card.
The district's performance scores are poor, but Superintendent Dr. David Estrop reassured Springfield City School teachers they haven't failed their students.
"We are not failures. Not our kids. No way you are calling our kids failures," said Estrop.
Though the district has made excellent progress last school year, earning an A, it scored Fs in several categories of performance measures.
This means Springfield City Schools is doing a great job helping their students learn, but not enough students have reached the level of proficiency the state requires in nine indicators.
The district also scored an F in Annual Measurable Objectives which is what the "no child left behind" criteria are now called.
Obviously, these failing scores aren't good news for the district, but Dr. Estrop said they're running an unfair race.
"We just continue to move forward and as the state continue to raise the basket our children continue to progress, but it's like chasing a finish line that keeps moving," said Estrop.
Logan, Preble, Butler and Wayne County, Indiana are under level one snow emergencies.
Forget the slippery roads and inches of snow on the ground, it's the perfect time to propose marriage. At least that is how Levi Minor felt Friday night.
Snowfall reports vary across the Miami Valley as the storm continues to produce heavy snow, making it hard for drivers to see in some cases.
