December 27th

School board meetings

The regular January meeting of the Solon Board of Education will be Monday, Jan. 9, in the central office conference room beginning at 6 p.m.

Standards-based grading

The 2011 to 2012 district study states, “SCSD stakeholders will analyze and study aspects of standards-based grading and reporting at all grade levels.” At the Dec. 8 SIAC meeting, committee members listened to the perspectives of middle school and high school teachers and students as it relates to standards-based grading. Interested parents and community members are invited to view a video outlining the proposed changes at www.tinyurl.com/scsdsbgvideo
A parent/community forum focusing on standards-based grading will be held in the spring at a date to be determined.

SCSD professional development

Solon Community School District (SCSD) staff members regularly engage in their own learning during 1 p.m. early dismissals. Staff development time is an opportunity for individuals and teams to focus on areas in which our data indicates we could do a better job helping students learn essential concepts and skills. In order to monitor our own progress, a website was created at the beginning of the 2010 to 2011 academic year. The SCSD professional development website has received multiple updates and revisions over the past year.

Kindergarten planning changes

Kindergarten Roundup will be held on Friday, April 13, 2012, at Lakeview Elementary so we are in the process of collecting the names of children in the Solon Community School District who will be attending kindergarten in the fall of 2012. Children must turn five by Sept. 15, 2012, to be eligible to enroll in kindergarten.
If you have a child who will attend kindergarten next fall collecting information is going to be a little different this year.
