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.

Welcome Back to Stingel Elementary
Even though the temperatures may not have reflected it, summer has come and gone and we are ready for another school year. While our students were at home recharging for another year there was a lot of work still happening at Stingel.   

We are excited to add Alyssa Nugent (kindergarten), Kristy Smith (intervention specialist), Ashley Vellucci (third grade) and Adria Jacobs (library) to our teaching staff. We are also pleased to have added Sue Booker, Carla Miller, Melissa Cary and Debra Johnson as recess aides for the 2014-2015 school year.   

You will notice that our playgrounds look a little different this year. This summer we completed a playground upgrade that will benefit the students for years to come. A small cement retaining wall was placed around each playground and our mulch was replaced with pea gravel. The addition of pea gravel will provide a safe shock absorbent play surface, reduce the amount of mud on students clothing and tracked into the building as well as prevent rain wash out when used in conjunction with the small retaining wall. Thanks to the generous support of the PTO we were also able to replace a swing set on the intermediate side, add a new climber to the primary side and also add two tether ball poles to each playground.   

Our custodians and maintenance staff have the building and grounds looking great. The office staff have the students enrolled and classes ready to go. It has been a very productive summer at Stingel Elementary and we are excited for another school year. Welcome back!
