Meigs Primary, Meigs Intermediate, and Meigs Middle Schools have been identified as in need of improvement. School Improvement means these schools did not meet Ohio’s goals in reading, mathematics or attendance for two years in a row or more. The students at Meigs Middle School did not meet the seventh grade Reading goal in the subgroups of economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities, white and all students. The Middle School also did not meet the Math goal in grade six and eight for subgroups economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities, white and all students. At Meigs Intermediate School, students did not meet the goals in Reading and Math in the subgroups of all students, economically disadvantaged, students with disabilities, and white for grades four and five. Meigs Primary School is in school improvement because they are a feeder school for Meigs Intermediate School and thus share the same students over time.
As a district, we are committed to ensuring that all children reach proficient levels of achievement. The schools in Meigs Local compare favorably in terms of student achievement with other schools in other districts in our area. However, the school is required to offer you the opportunity to transfer your student to a higher performing public school in the same district or a nearby district. In Meigs Local, educational choices are limited due to our geographic location and the fact that we have only one school building for each grade level. The district has approached other districts to create a cooperative agreement for transferring students. But at this point, no other districts within a reasonable distance have entered into such an agreement.
