Dear Families of Whitehall City Schools,
It’s been a fast and furious first couple months of the new school year! Our students are working hard and are beginning to be recognized for their hard work both collectively and individually. Great things are happening and these are exciting times, to be sure!
- We have completed the first stage of our renovation project in the WYHS auditorium. New seats, new sound system, and a new sound booth!
- Our award winning vocal and instrumental music programs are again some of the finest programs in Ohio. I would encourage you to attend one of the many performances scheduled throughout the fall and winter months.
- Whitehall City Schools has seen a 94% increase in the number of high school students taking college courses (dual enrollment). This is the largest percent increase among low income schools in the region. Low income is defined as at least 40% aggregate free and reduced price lunch in a school.
I feel it’s important to maintain a level of transparency with our community members. This helps strengthen our school district’s relationship with our residents and stakeholders. Transparency couldn’t be more important this election season. We are on the ballot this year for a combined bond and permanent improvement levy.
Our current enrollment is outpacing our capacity here at Whitehall City Schools. This growth is felt most strongly at Rosemore Middle School and continues to be a problem. By the year 2021-2022, Rosemore Middle School, which was built to house 650 students, is projected to have 900 students.
Please learn more about our levy and become an informed voter by visiting www.wcslevy.com.
