What's New In Ohio Education
The Ohio Department of Education has implemented a program that mandates all districts/schools administer a reading diagnostic assessment to all students in kindergarten through grade three by September 30th of each school year to meet the requirements of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.  The KRA (Kindergarten Readiness Assessment) and the Reading Diagnostic for grades 1 and 2 will be given to all Goldwood students prior to September 30th.  This data will be used to identify students "Not on track" for meeting the Third Grade Reading Guarantee (TGRG). Please click on the link for information regarding ODE diagnostic assessments for grades K-2.  
Information for Parents Concerning Data Release
A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, families of students whose data will be released must be notified and given the opportunity to object. The court is instructing all local education agencies to post notice about this opportunity to object on their district websites and in a central location, accessible to the public, in each building that is open to the public.

Author's Visit to GPS
To follow up our Right to Read Week celebration, Eric Litwin, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the first four Pete the Cat picture books, visited Goldwood for two assemblies!  Mr. Eric is a guitar strumming, book writing, harmonica blowing, song singing, folksy, fun type of guy.  The students enjoyed hearing their favorite Pete the Cat stories come to life, and were also introduced to Mr. Eric's newest characters, the Nut Family, from his upcoming book Bedtime at the Nut House.
