Retirements

On behalf of Archbold Area Schools and personally, I would like to recognize three individuals who are retiring from the district. Mrs. Jodi Gerken, Mrs. Diania Nemcik, and Mr. Craig Link. These individuals have made a positive impact on our students and community, and we wish them the best in retirement.

Graduation Flexibility

The State Board of Education passed a resolution by a vote of 16-1 to encourage legislative changes to graduation for the class of 2021. The resolution urges lawmakers to permit graduation flexibility for seniors in danger of not graduating to allow the use of:

▪ final course grades from this year in lieu of end-of-course exams; 

▪ workplace readiness criteria already in place in the current OhioMeansJobs-Readiness Seal; 

▪ the recommendation of the student’s principal in consultation with teachers and counselors.

Spring Sports

Gov. Mike DeWine announced that student athletes participating in spring sports will not be required to quarantine if they have an incidental exposure to COVID-19 in a classroom unless symptoms develop. Additionally, DeWine announced that ESCs will receive COVID-19 rapid tests that can be distributed to K-12 schools.
