Ohio School Report Card 2016-17 for Wadsworth City Schools

Dear Community Members:

Today, the Wadsworth City School District released its fourth annual Quality Profile in conjunction with the release of the Ohio Department of Education’s Wadsworth City School District  2016-2017 State Report Card.   While the State Report Card is an important measure of student success, there are many other facets that we believe are necessary for the well-rounded education our community expects.  To gain an overall understanding of the depth of opportunities offered to our students and their resulting success, we encourage you to review not only our State Report Card but our Quality Profile as well.

Student Absences

Recently, Ohio law on how school districts record and monitor student absences changed.  Our district has spent the summer working to align our policies and practices to the changes in law and the recently released guidance from the Ohio Department of Education. You can view a brief overview of these important changes by clicking here.

Important E-Link Information for Parents

The Wadsworth City Schools Transportation Department has implemented E-Link to provide parents the ability to look up the most accurate bus information for their children throughout the school year.  Families can access their individual bus numbers, schedules, and routes at any time thus replacing the “postcard” method sent in early August.  (Please disregard this information if your student is being transported via a vehicle or those who attend a school outside of Wadsworth.  In this instance, parents will need to contact the Transportation Office in August to verify route information.)

E-Link will provide “real time” data and will update route times as students move in and out of the district.  These are computer-generated estimates, and, as always, please allow a bus to run five (5) minutes early/behind the actual time of arrival.


Emergency Medical Form 2017-2018

Parents/Guardians who have been issued a Snap Code for the 2017-2018 school year may complete their student's online emergency medical form from the link provided here.
