How do you measure a year? The Ohio Department of Education measures years with academic ratings and state report cards. I'm proud to share that the Washington Local School District was rated EXCELLENT by the Ohio Department of Education for three years in a row. McGregor Elementary received the highest rating of Excellent with Distinction, and more WLS schools earned Excellent ratings than ever before. Standardized test scores tell only part of the story of any district's success, however. They don't measure the opportunities offered by career training classes, fine arts programs, or foreign language exchanges. They don't measure the importance we place on student safety -- our 100% passage rate during bus inspections, the installation of buzzer systems at every school -- or our efforts for student and staff wellness. They don't measure fiscal responsibility, shared sacrifice by district employees, partnerships with area businesses, or public trust.

No educational assessment measures community service or the life lessons learned. Washington Local students completed over 100 service projects last year, raising more than $40,000 to help locally and globally. Henry Drummond said, "You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love." I couldn't agree more.

Each school year is filled with countless moments of exploration, innovation, inspiration, and celebration, and I encourage you to get involved, attend our events, and share these special moments.

Make the most of ALL of your moments, and have a great year!
