What's Happening at Middletown City Schools
TRCs Make Big Impact on Student Engagement
It is an exciting time for technology in the classroom at Middletown City School District. Over the summer, 16 teachers voluntarily attended 40 hours of Professional Development to transform their rooms into Technology Rich Classrooms (TRC). The TRC teachers learned how to incorporate Google for Education and other online resources into their daily routines and lessons. The TRCs received a cart of 30 Chromebooks and an interactive projector to pilot a 1:1 (where there is one device per every one student) teaching approach.  Click "Read More" for the full article.

New State Tests to Replace Ohio Achievement Assessments
During the 2014-2015 school year, most Ohio students in grades 3-8 will take a new and different set of state achievement tests that are based on Ohio’s New Learning Standards. The standards and new tests both reflect higher expectations for what students should know and be able to do in math, English language arts, science and social studies. The new tests also will better measure what students have learned and what they can do with their knowledge.

New Kindergarten Readiness Assessment, KRA, Ensures a Better Start
Middletown City School District wants all youngsters to enjoy school from the day they enter kindergarten. Coming to kindergarten with certain skills already in place makes learning easier for your child. For example, children whose families have read to them and children who can draw some basic letters have an easier time learning to read. That’s important, because reading lays the foundation for learning throughout their school years.

This fall, we will begin using a better way to determine what our kindergarten students know and can do. This more accurate information will help teachers better identify what each student needs to succeed in kindergarten.

Teachers will use Ohio’s new Kindergarten Readiness Assessment to get a snapshot of every child’s knowledge and skills in six areas: social skills, math, science, social studies, language and literacy, physical well-being and motor development.
