Public Input Requested Regarding State Testing

The Ohio Senate moved closer to granting more flexibility to local schools Tuesday, March 24th, while also launching a website to solicit public feedback for its new testing review.


Sen. Peggy Lehner (R-Kettering), chairwoman of both the Senate Education Committee and Senate Advisory Committee on Testing, said http://sact.ohiosenate.gov is now online and ready to take public suggestions on how Ohio should address the controversial topic of educational assessments.

Frank Lazzeri, Superintendent of the Boardman Schools, encourages residents to comment on this important issue that affects all public school children before the comment period closes.

School Calendar 2015-16

The school year will begin a week earlier in 2015 due to the lateness of Labor Day.  The Board of Education adopted the 2015-16 school calendar at its regular January meeting.  This calendar is the "traditional" Boardman calendar except for the earlier start.  That means that we have not shortened our spring recess the way that many other area schools have.

Superintendent's Message

Hello Visitor,

 

Welcome to the Boardman Local School District’s new web site.  We have adopted this new look in order to provide some consistency in features among our seven buildings and central office.  It is my hope that this new site will make navigation much easier as you seek information about our school system.  Please be patient as we add information to the website and strive to keep it up-to-date. 

 

Much of the information on the web site will be static and unchanging.  Nevertheless, we will be posting school news and other important information on a weekly basis.  If you want a true daily snapshot of what is going on in our schools I invite you to become part of DRUND which is now Spartan Nation.  This “app” is available either in the Apple App Store for the iPhone or Google Play for Android phones.  Most teachers post daily activities going on in their classroom. Also, I will be notifying parents of school closures and delays via Spartan Nation even before you see it on television.  Many teachers also post assignments, course syllabi, and test dates to help keep parents informed.  Join the Spartan Nation today and stay connected to your child's school and teachers.

 

Finally, we will be posting news articles both on the main district page and on the individual building pages.  Keep up-to-date on school news by checking in at least on a weekly basis.  If you are interested in finding out more about our athletic programs click on the quick links located on the home page.  Happy browsing!

 

Sincerely,

Frank Lazzeri

Superintendent
