Message from the Superintendent
We are excited to be opening our new middle school at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year. This building will provide a solution to our current space issues and allow for additional growth within our district.
As a result of moving the 6th grade to the new middle school, transportation routes and school start and end times needed to be reevaluated. We have been working hard to make the best decision for our students while remaining fiscally responsible and mindful of our resources.
We began this process before Thanksgiving Break and ran several different scenarios. As you can see below, we ended in a very similar place with the exception of Avon East who will now have a later start time.
We did start with a goal of moving Heritage Elementary to a later start time, but unfortunately we could not make that happen without adding a very large cost to the district.
Please feel free to call me at 440-937-4680 if you have questions. I will be happy to walk you through the process we used and share how we made our decisions.

Every year, since the 1970s, April is recognized as the National Autism Awareness Month, which provides a special opportunity to educate the public about autism and issues that affect people suffering from this disorder. According to statistics, about 1 in every 68 (up from one in 88 just two years ago) children in the US is affected by the autism spectrum disorder--ASD (CDC study as of March 2014). It is estimated that almost 2 million individuals in the U.S., as well as millions more globally are affected by autism. Unfortunately, there is no consensus among experts about the possible causes of autism and there is no cure for this disorder. However, different treatments and therapies may help in overcoming developmental disabilities related to behavior and communication. Many lives have been and can continue to be, changed by creating greater awareness about its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. We have all seen the Autism Awareness Ribbon. The ribbon’s puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of the autism spectrum. The different colors and shapes represent the diversity of the people and families living with the condition. The brightness of the ribbon signals hope—hope that through increased awareness of autism, and through early intervention and appropriate treatments, people with autism will lead fuller, more complete lives. Accept, Understand, Love.
