What's New at Ontario Schools?
A few things in regards to this Friday at Home vs. Clear Fork
Gates will open and tickets will be sold just before 6:00 p.m. on Friday, September 5.  If you have a pass please come through the pass gate.  We will be charting the type of pass that you have this year, not asking everyone to sign in.    If you are on the pass list because you are working, please check-in at the pass gate also. 

The OYS teams will be introduced beginning at 6:15 p.m.  They will be walking down the track on the home side and exiting through the concession stand gate.

Also introduced will be the 1964 undefeated team after OYS teams have left the field.

The gates to enter onto the track will be closed this year.  People walking to the home stands must walk around the track by the restrooms.  We are going to allow the parent/student tunnel for the players just before they enter the field for game time around 6:55 p.m.  After that the field/track area (inside the fence) will be cleared.  No one will be permitted inside the fence area (track/sideline area) after the teams have taken the field except individuals who are wearing a Booster Club issued wrist band.  The Athletic Booster Club will be selling those wrist bands for $50.  Those wrist bands will allow fans inside the fence (behind the end zone) for the entire season.  You are asked to stay on the high jump pit pavement and not on the grass.  There will be a rope or line on the ground to keep fans from the field.  If you are interested in donating to the Booster Club for on-field access, there will be a tent set-up outside the fence as you walk into the complex for you to purchase a wrist band.  Contact miller.christopher@ontarioschools.org or drehfeldt@aol.com with questions or inquiries about purchasing bands. 

Also at the tent will be survey cards distributed from the Boosters. Please be sure to take one and complete.  The survey pertains to the All-sports facility project.  There will be buckets at each concession to return your responses.  This feedback is very important in making decisions pertaining to the project, so we appreciate all of your feedback.

Federal Court Instructs Ohio Districts to Post Information for Parents Concerning Data Release
A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

A copy of the notice – which includes instructions on how parents may object to the data release – can be found here. The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12.

Students’ names, addresses and social security numbers are not part of the information to be released. Ohio is one of only three states that do not allow their departments of education to collect this data, to protect student privacy.

Data to be released for each student include student ID number, school name, grade, gender, race, age and disability category. The records also reveal student performance on the state’s Ohio Achievement Assessments and Ohio Graduation Tests, as well as tests related to Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Student suspensions and expulsions also are listed.

The data is subject to a protective order, which means Disability Rights Ohio cannot publicize it.

Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter. Please contact the Ohio Department of Education’s legal office at (614) 466-4705 if you have questions.
