AdvancED Parent/Guardian Survey -- Spring 2018

April 30, 2018

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Greetings!  I hope this finds you well and beginning to be able to enjoy some more spring-like weather!

Our desire at London High School (LHS) is to be a great school!  We want to provide our students with an outstanding educational experience! As with any organization, seeking feedback is part of the improvement process. To that end, LHS is currently seeking feedback from our students, staff, parents and guardians. We are doing that through surveys that have been provided to us by our accrediting organization, AdvancED. The survey results we will gather will be compared to the other schools in the AdvancEd network around the world, which consists of more than 34,000 schools in more than 70 countries! Once the data is gathered, we will be studying it, having conversations with stakeholders about it, and then sharing our results and our plans to improve with our stakeholder groups. 

As such, below is a link to the parent/guardian survey.  I am asking for each parent and guardian of an LHS student to please take the time to complete a survey. Completing the survey should take between five and ten minutes, and I would appreciate having them completed by Tuesday, May 08, 2018. 

Thank you, in advance, for taking the survey!

Again, thank you!

3rd-Quarter LHS Data Dashboard

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
 
In our continued efforts to improve the work that we do at LHS, we have identified some specific areas of our work that we want to monitor.  As we monitor them, we make adjustments to what it is that we do.  In an effort to be transparent and let you see what it is we are monitoring, we are providing this data dashboard (i.e., like the dashboard of your car) to allow you to see our numbers, as well.  Please know that we will be updating this information throughout the course of the year.  
 
Thank you!  :)

Educationally Yours,

LHS Paperless Grade Reports and Opt-Out Option


Dear Parents and Guardians of London High School Students,

In our efforts to continue to learn, grow, and enhance how we do business, London High School (LHS) is transitioning to a paperless process for interim reports and report cards (i.e., grade reports) beginning with the first interim reports for the 2017 – ’18 school year.

We are making this transition for several reasons. First, it will allow you to see final grading-period marks (i.e., grades) sooner because the printing and mailing process will be eliminated. Secondly, it will save on tax payer dollars because it will reduce paper costs, mailing costs, and human costs in terms of preparing the mailing. Third, the saving of the paper is more environmentally friendly.

Parents and guardians will be able to access their child’s grades through ProgessBook, just as many parents already do.

If you don’t remember your ProgressBook login information, please contact Ms. Dana Snyder at the following e-mail address to request that information: dana.snyder@london.k12.oh.us.

For parents and guardians who prefer to receive a paper copy, please click HERE to fill-out the opt-out form. You may also come to the high school office to register for the opt-out option.

Thank you!

All the best to you and yours!

Love! Learn! Lead!

Go Red Raiders!

Regards,

Mr. Eisler, Principal

Money Matters: District Financial Update

During its history, the London City Schools has enjoyed a great deal of financial support from the community. Due to this continued support, the district has successfully lived within its financial means, since its last new money levy was passed in 2007. 

Due to a growing local economy, our district revenues were slightly higher than expected this past year. Combined with spending within our budget, LCS essentially balanced revenues and spending during the 2018 fiscal year. The district will continue to take proactive steps to recapture savings whenever possible, but like any business or family budget, costs always increase. Finally, after 11 years, the district is expected to begin deficit spending next school year.
