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.

AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH UPDATE!!
It is with great appreciation that we acknowledge the Avon Community and its efforts to raise awareness of Autism during the month of April. Each building managed to create fun and educational activities that not only raised awareness, but also greatly-needed funds for Milestones Autism Resources and Autism Awareness.
During the month of April buildings held staff luncheons, sold glow necklaces, sunglasses, and bracelets, and shared facts through morning announcements about the characteristics of Autism. Buildings “Lit IT Up Blue” on a designated day by dressing in blue in support of Autism Awareness.
As a result of this effort on the part of students, staff and families the Avon Local Schools raised:
• $500 TO SPONSOR A LANE AT THE STRIKE IT BIG FOR MILESTONES ON 4/26/2015
• $5846.46 TO SPLIT BETWEEN MILESTONES AUTISM RESOURCES AND AUTISM AWARENESS
These funds will be utilized to fund research, support families, and continue to build awareness.
The Avon Community should be Eagle proud in this demonstration of generosity and compassion!
