The Ohio Department of Education has grant the Kenton City School District a waiver day to work on staff professional development and write the Student Learning Objectives (SLOs) for the new evaluation system.
Student Learning Objectives are an evaluation component of Student Growth Measures:
Student growth measures (SGMs) are a method for determining how much academic progress students are making by measuring growth between two points in time. In essence, any assessment available to educators will be considered a student growth measure when used to evaluate progress or growth, provided the assessment is rigorous and comparable across classrooms.
There will be no classes for students but staff will still need to report for that day. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your building’s principal for further information.
There is a reported case of chickenpox at Kenton Senior High.
There is also a reported case of Fifth’s Disease, which is viral communicable condition that follows a viral infection by 7-10 days.
Its symptoms give a “slapped cheek” appearance to the cheeks with activity. It can be accompanied by low grade fever, slight nausea, and a raised rash that starts on the arms and legs and moves to the trunk of the body. The disease is spread through respiratory secretions so hand washing frequently and after coughing and sneezing is a must.
Symptoms last 5 to 7 days. No need for exclusion unles there is fever and/or nausea.

Students must take all exams unless they are exempt due to perfect attendance (no absences from class, tardies to class or in school suspensions) or Gold Card privileges (must maintain at least an A- for 2nd nine weeks). Students who are exempt are encouraged to take any exam if it will improve their semester average and GPA. If a student does not have an assigned exam they may leave the building or report to the cafeteria or Library. Bus students will report to the cafeteria until testing time. The cafeteria will also be available for those students who do not have an exam and are unable to leave. The library will be available for anyone interested in a quiet place to prepare for exams.
