Findlay City Schools has been recognized by the Ohio State Board of Education for achieving the “All A Award” for Whittier Primary and Jefferson Primary in 2019.
Also, Wilson Vance Intermediate received an “Overall A Building Award.”
The State Board of Education recognizes schools and districts with the “All A Award” if they receive A’s on all Ohio School Report Card measures.
This is the second “All A Award” in a row for Whittier Primary.
“It’s a really big deal for us and we’re extremely proud of it,” said Principal Kelly Stahl.
“It’s a great honor because we’re one of a few schools in the state to receive the award.”
She says parents play a big role in a child’s foundational reading skills.
“I believe in a strong home-school connection and I think that parents helping out and seeing that kids are practicing at home is a big help.”
The schools will be recognized at an award ceremony at the Penta Career Center in Perrysburg in March.
A complete list of districts and schools across Ohio that have warranted the “Overall A Award”, “All A Award” or “Momentum Award” can be found on the Ohio Department of Education’s website.
