District Close to Adopting New Mathematics Curricula
For the past five years, Groveport Madison Schools’ administration has worked with teaching staff to select rigorous materials to prepare students to meet the new Ohio Learning Standards. The District has adopted new curricula for math, English/Language Arts, science and social studies. Elective courses (Encore) resource materials were originally scheduled to be the next area to be addressed. However, the changes in the Ohio standards, combined with our District’s test scores demand we update our math resources this year. 
High School Construction Update
One of the most noticeable pieces of the high school construction project is the new sewer line that’s being installed around the existing building. This is a big project that requires trenching of more than 20 feet deep, almost all the way around the current building. Unfortunately, it requires that we modify our traffic patterns in order to accommodate its installation, which will be completed in early March. Temporary signage is being installed to help students, staff, parents, and visitors to the school navigate around the construction. 
State Report Cards Continue to Cause Confusion
If Ohio’s State Report Cards didn’t confuse you before, the 2014-2015 Report Card has taken it to new heights. Issued five months into the 2015-2016 school year, in two separate releases, and using data from the now abandoned PAARC assessments, many have asked whether 2014-2015 Report Card has much value at this point.
