Lockdown/Dismissal Update

This afternoon, Thursday, January 5, 2017, the District received a call informing us of a potential threat involving an adult and the possession of a weapon.  Law enforcement had reason to believe that the individual was in the vicinity of LaBrae Schools.  With the intent of taking no risks, and focusing on the objective of keeping students safe, the administration coordinated security detail with the Warren Township Police and other neighboring law enforcement jurisdictions to secure our buildings and plan for a safe and orderly dismissal of students.  Our staff proceeded to work with law enforcement to first dismiss the high school and middle school students, which occurred approximately 15 minutes later than normal.  The delay was due to fact that information was provided so soon before dismissal and the need to determine accuracy and respond accordingly.  Our elementary dismissal was also conducted with security supervision provided by staff and local law enforcement.  For both dismissals, officers were stationed at the entrance of the facility to supervise traffic and additional officers secured bus loading zones to ensure student safety.  Commendations to students, staff and law enforcement for their conduct in helping the District execute its emergency operations plan.  School will be in session and all normal activities will resume on Friday, January 6, 2017, unless circumstances dictate otherwise.  

Additionally, LaBrae Local Schools would like to thank our parents and community for their patience and understanding.  Please understand that our first order of business is to ensure the safety of students, and to handle the circumstances presented to us. The District does its best to communicate information to parents, but that objective is secondary to managing the situation. Events such as these require parents and the community to trust District staff to keep students safe; that is our goal, first and foremost. Apologies are offered for not sharing information immediately, but the District makes sharing information a priority as soon as the situation permits. Again, LaBrae Schools thanks you for your patience, understanding, and support! 

Please look for additional notices via the school's social media app, Viking Nation, or the District Twitter account.  Should you have questions regarding the above, please contact the Superintendent's office at 330.898.1393.

2016 Ohio Report Cards

The Ohio Department of Education has released the 2016 school report cards, reflecting academic performance for the 2015-2016 school year.  When you access LaBrae's district report card, or the report card of one of our buildings, you will notice that we receive grades in categories labeled Student Achievement, Student Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy, and College/Career Readiness, which is identified with the label "Prepared for Success".  

Over the course of the last three years, Ohio schools have undergone many changes to the standards and expectations associated with the State report cards.  For example, the 2015-2016 school year was the third consecutive year of a different test being administered by Ohio schools.  Not only have there been changes to testing, there have been changes to the learning standards and accountability measures, such as an increase in the percentage of students who must be proficient for a district, or school building, to have met an indicator in the tested subject.

Overall grades will not be placed on the report cards until 2018 as Ohio is giving districts time to adjust to the multitude of changes before assigning such grades.  LaBrae's 2016 report card has many successes, and our performance continues to rank high in comparison to other Trumbull County schools.  While LaBrae is proud of the many positives on the report card, it also acknowledges those categories on the report card that represent opportunities for improvement.  Our challenge remains maintaining areas of academic excellence while diligently addressing those improvement opportunities.  Furthermore, while LaBrae is proud of its success on Ohio's report card, the report card is not our only measure of success.  There are numerous examples of excellence and commitment to students throughout our District that when coupled with our achievement, serve as evidence of the good being done for our students and families.  All of our successes are a testament to the hard work of our students and staff, and are achieved with the help of a strong and supportive community. Despite this era of transition, this is a report card of which the LaBrae community can be proud.  Should you have questions regarding LaBrae's report card(s), please contact the Office of the Superintendent at 330.898.1393.

Additionally, LaBrae Local Schools has also provided PDF attachments below comparing all 20 public schools in Trumbull County.  Despite the State's lack of a letter grade assignment, the District simply calculated all grades assigned, averaged the letter grades on the grade scale provided, and arrived at an overall G.P.A. and letter grade for Trumbull County Schools.  Please note, that this methodology is not scientific and does not take into account the variables that impact achievement in each Trumbull County district/community, and is merely provided to our community for the sake of comparison.
