Final Forms

FinalForms

LaBrae Local Schools is initiating the use of FinalForms beginning with the 2018-2019 school year.  FinalForms is utilized PK-12 to manage emergency medicals forms, handbooks, and other activities that previously involved distribution, completion, and return of a form.  Parents with multiple children in the district will find this portal for document management to be a tremendous time saver.

The initial phase of this implementation is for parents to create their accounts.  Students in grades 6-12 will also need to create their own individual account.  Registration for the 2018-2019 school year is now open.  Parents are encouraged to complete all of the contact and personal information at this time.  However, at this time the only forms that need completion, review, and signatures are those pertaining to athletics.  While parents and students can see all of the academic related forms as of May 2018, we ask that parents DO NOT submit your electronic signatures on academic forms until August 1, 2018, after all handbooks and summer updates have been completed. All parents, and students who will be in grades 6-12 in the fall of 2018, are asked to complete this registration and submission of forms and signatures by Tuesday, August 28, 2018, the first day of school. For students in grades 7-12 that plan to play a fall sport, the parent and student registration needs to be completed as soon as possible in order to begin fall practices. 

To register for your account, please use the Final Forms Guide for Parents below.  The FinalForms guide will assist you in the registration process. To access the FinalForms page to begin registration, or to login, click on the FinalForms icon above, or use the login link at the bottom of this page.

Below are a few tips when registering:

  • For students in grades PK-5, student emails and student signatures are NOT required.
  • For students in grades 6-12, the student email address must be a unique email address. A registered parent email cannot be used as a student email address.
  • Grades 7-12: If you are a student athlete and your OHSAA Physical has been completed, you will NOT need to print the last two forms, the OHSAA PPE Medical History and the OHSAA PPE Physical (for Physicians). However, you will still need to fill out and SIGN both forms regarding the OHSAA PPE. Again there is no need to print these forms, if your OHSAA Physical has been completed. If your physical has not been completed you will print these forms to take with you to the physician’s office.

2017 Ohio Report Cards

The Ohio Department of Education has released the 2017 school report cards, reflecting academic performance for the 2016-2017 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 four 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, thus 2016-2017 was the second year where the same testing vendor and format were the same as the previous year.  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.  The old standard required a district to get 75% of its students to score proficient or better to meet the achievment indicator.  The new standard, implemented in 2015-2016, requires an 80% proficiency standard in order to meet the achievement goal on any testing area.

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 2017 report card has many successes, and our performance in many areas 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 a PDF attachment 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 for the graded report card components, 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. 

(Note: The report card links below will direct you to the Ohio Department of Education's website and provide interactivity, allowing the viewer access to greater detail in each component accessible through embedded hyperlinks.)
