Orientation for East Community Learning Center (both high and middle schools) will take place on Tuesday, August 20, from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Students in grades 7 through 12 and their parents will learn about the new college and career academy structure, class scheduling, behavior expectations, how to contact teachers, emergency procedures, and everything they will need to know to function in a secondary school setting.


Wanna Buy
a School Building?

Looking for a place to launch a new business or establish a co-working space?   Toying with the idea of becoming a property flipper?   Then, read on.

The Akron Public School District is offering ten properties — eight unoccupied school buildings and two lots — for sale at auction on Wednesday, August 21, at 5:30 p.m. in the newly-occupied Board of Education building at 10 N. Main St. (formerly the SummaCare building).

Three of the properties are located within the East Cluster.   They are the former Goodyear Middle School building (the original East High School), the Hotchkiss Elementary building, and the athletic field on Johns Ave. across from Goodyear Middle.

Descriptions of the properties and details of the auction can be viewed here.

As the new school year approaches

Adjust Your Student's
Daily Schedule

Just when your student may have settled in to a nice, relaxed summer routine — a major change looms on the horizon.

The new school year begins on Aug. 29 for grades 1-9 and on Sept. 3 for grades 10-12, kindergarten, and pre-kindergarten.   This will require some changes in your student's daily schedule.

Educators and psychologists suggest switching to a more structured household schedule as the beginning of school approaches.   This is especially true when it comes to meal times, bed times, and wake-up times.

It may be a hard sell, but research shows that students who eat a healthy breakfast and get a good night's sleep perform better during the school day.

Here are some helpful tips to help your student adjust to a more school-centric schedule.


East STEM Teachers
Recognized for Excellence

The Ohio Academy of Science
has selected 54 Ohio schools and 556 teachers to receive the Governor's Thomas Edison Award for Excellence in STEM Education and Student Research for their accomplishments during the 2018-19 school year.

Among the awardees were 19 teachers from the East Community Learning Center (both high school and middle school).

Each school being recognized will receive a special Governor's Award certificate, and each teacher will receive a complementary membership to The Ohio Academy of Science.   This initiative is funded by the Technology Division of the Ohio Development Services Agency.

Here is the complete list of award recipients.


Why Are So Many Girls
So Mean to Each Other?

No, this isn't a tag line from a promo for the movie "Mean Girls." This is an unfortunate reality facing many high school and middle school girls in this country.

According to a recent survey conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics, three time as many girls as boys reported being harassed online or by text message.   To be specific, 21% of girls in high school and middle school reported being bullied in this manner compared to 7% of the boys.

The survey further showed that about one in five (20%) students overall reported being the victims of acts of bullying ranging from rumors or being excluded to threats and physical attacks.

Here is the complete story as reported by the Associated Press.

Connect Your
Higher Education Options

Did you know that the University of Akron and Stark State College have created an academic partnership called Direct Connect?   This arrangement allows students to enroll simultaneously at both institutions.

Stark State offers associate degrees, while Akron offers associate, bachelor's, and graduate degrees.

University of Akron interim President, John Green, stated, "We are actively pursuing a path of widening the educational pipeline in Akron."

The terms of this partnership allow students to transition seamlessly from earning an associate degree at Stark to pursuing a bachelor's degree at Akron.   And instead of attending Akron for those first two years of college, students, in many areas of study, can get the same curriculum at Stark at a savings in tuition costs.

John Green noted that students with two-year degrees could use their credentials to get a job to help pay for their bachelor's degree.

Stark State President, Para Jones, pointed out the additional benefit that Stark State students "...will be able to start working with admission counselors, faculty advisers at the University of Akron."

In addition, Stark students participating in Direct Connect will have access to University facilities such as Akron's libraries, recreation center, and computer labs.


Attention Seniors:

If you need help completing your FAFSA application for the 2019-20 academic year, the Ohio Association of Student Financial Aid Administrators has created a FAFSA help web site.
