Looking for a Summer Job ?

Summit County receives federal grant

The Summit County Council has officially accepted a federal grant of $1.96 million for this year's Summer Youth Employment Program.

The program, entering its fifth year, is designed for Summit County residents who will be between the ages of 16 and 24 as of June 1 and who live in low-income households.

The period of employment will run from June 13 to August 20.

Registration is based on zip code of residence.   Since most East High students live in either the 44305 or 44306 zip codes, they will need to contact Jobs for Ohio's Graduates ( J.O.G.) at 330-374-9477 to apply.

Here are the guidelines for this year's program.


At Seiberling

How Does Your Garden Grow?

The greenhouse built by students and members of the Seiberling community is entering its second year of existence and its second growing season.

However, a growing season is rather empty without things to grow.   Seiberling's young gardeners are asking for your help.

If you have extra seedlings, plant starts, or hand gadening tools that you no longer need, the students would be happy to put them to use.

Items can be dropped off at Seiberling any time during school hours.


Summer School
Isn't Just for Summer
Any More

The Akron Public Schools are no longer waiting until summer as the only time for its high schoolers to retake a failed class.

Based on interim grade reports, students in danger of failing a class are identified and directed to an after-school intervention program during the school year.   The goal is to give students a chance to catch up with their classwork instead of failing the class at the end of the school year.

A winter transition program was held between November 30 and January 8.   A similar program will be held between March 21 and May 20.

A transition program for middle school students will take place in August.

For additional background on the school system's intervention programs, visit the Leader papers web site here.


Beginning March 5

Redesigned SAT Debuts

Any student taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) on or after March 5, 2016, will notice some major changes.

Because the SAT has become less effective in predicting how well prepared a student is for college-level academics, the College Board, administrator of the test, has instituted some major revisions.   These are the first changes to the test since 2005.

The new SAT strives to be more relevant by measuring what a student has learned in high school and what they will need to succeed in college.

Major changes to the SAT include:

  • the essay portion of the test, added in 2005, will become optional
  • the maximum score attainable will return to 1,600 from the previous 2,400
  • the math portion of the test will place more emphasis on problem solving, data analysis, and algebra
  • test vocabulary will be more in line with current college usage.

For more detail, visit the College Board web site.

What is a Cluster?

seven clusters The Akron Public Schools are divided into seven neighborhood groups or clusters — each headed by the high school located within that cluster.   The rest of the cluster is made up of the middle school that feeds into that high school and the various elementary schools that feed into that middle school.   The clusters were formed to increase community identity within a large school system.

The East Cluster schools work among themsevles, and with parent and community groups, to develop a partnership to best serve our student population.

The cluster concept helps to make a large school system much more personal and responsive to the needs of its students, parents, and the larger community.   The East Cluster has always been a very active, engaged cluster with great school and community pride.
