Fort Recovery Local Schools Receives Highest Possible Rating of Meets Requirements for 2019 ODE Special Education Report
Every year, our district receives a rating on the performance of our special education program.  The Ohio Department of Education uses final data that our district submits through the Education Management Information System (EMIS). This data results in one of four ratings - Meets Requirements, Needs Assistance, Needs Intervention, or Needs Substantial Intervention
Fort Recovery's 2019 Special Education Rating is Meets Requirements.  The primary basis of this rating is the final special education program data our district submitted through EMIS for the 2017-2018 school year. 
The 2019 rating assessed our performance on the following compliance measures:
  • Math proficiency rate for students with disabilities across all grades (indicator 3c)
  • Reading proficiency rate for students with disabilities across all grades (indicator 3c)
  • Third grade reading proficiency rate for students with disabilities (indicator 3c)
  • Disproportionality in discipline rates (indicator 4b)
  • Disproportionality in special education (indicator 9)
  • Disproportionality in specific disability categories (indicator 10)
  • Initial evaluation timelines (indicator 11)
  • Early childhood transition (indicator 12)
  • Secondary transition planning (indicator 13)
  • Timely correction of noncompliance (indicator 20)
  • Timely and accurate data reporting (indicator 20)

Congratulations to our students and staff for this rating of high compliance and achievement.

Parking Lot Repair ** Attention Parents **
On Wednesday, September 4 & Thursday, September 5 the back Bus parking lot will be closed for repairs.  The school buses and cars will both utilize the front parking lot. In the morning, please allow the buses time to drop off the students and extra room to maneuver through the parking lot.  For the afternoon dismissal, school staff will stop the vehicles before entering the parking lot to allow all of the buses to enter first. We anticipate that this will cause some backup and traffic concerns, we plan to work with the Ft. Recovery Police Department to help ease traffic congestion.  For these 2 days, we would appreciate if you would wait to pick your child up until 3:25.

All 2019-2020 Bus Routes can be found on our Transportation Website.
School Closing and Delay Information Fort Recovery Local Schools
The decision whether, (not weather), to cancel school or start with a delay is taken very seriously by the administrative staff at Fort Recovery Local Schools. The safety of over 1,000 students and staff members is affected by these decisions.

A member of the Fort Recovery Transportation Department and the superintendent work collaboratively to evaluate the conditions.  They drive the roads throughout the district, share weather conditions with neighboring district personnel and utilize input from local law enforcement and street/road crews. In addition, the superintendent uses handheld media devices to review weather forecasts and radar images when considering a delay or cancellation.

Search of FRMS & FRHS by K-9 Units
  • Officers from local law enforcement agencies conducted a search of the middle school and high school premises with their respective K-9 units on Monday, April 1, 2019. The K-9 units search serves many important purposes for providing a safe academic environment for everyone connected with the educational system. It also serves as an appropriate training exercise for all participants, especially the dogs.

    Prior to the officers initiating the search, the faculty, students and staff were informed of the situation via the public address system and the building went into a “soft lockdown.” During this type of lockdown classroom teachers proceed with their normal course instruction so that the learning process is not interrupted. Our students and staff conducted themselves appropriately as directed.
