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.
