Liberty-Benton Soaring Into 2023
Liberty-Benton Soaring Into 2023
Our staff and students are off and running in 2023. There is no doubt in my mind this will be another exciting year for our Eagle community. I am hopeful for a year of progress and continued growth in the areas of academics, arts, and athletics.  In addition, we will usher in additional facility upgrades.  Most notably, the opening of our new PK-8 facility.  
As a reminder, the end of the first semester is January 27. Our staff and students have continued working hard this school year to close the learning gap that widened because of the pandemic. We hope you will see this hard work reflected in your student’s grades and state achievement test scores. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teacher(s). 
We are now well into the winter sports season. I encourage you to catch a game or match and stay tuned to social media for other upcoming events so you can show your support for our students no matter what their endeavors. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday break and that 2023 is shaping up to be a great one for you and your loved ones. And as always … GO EAGLES!

What Parents Need to Know

New guidance came out for K-12 that students no longer have to quarantine at home if they are exposed to COVID in the household or outside contact. They will still have to wear a mask for 10 days at school still, and some parents may choose to keep them home if they don't like masking at school. We will only be keeping track of students who stay home due to not wanting to mask to stay and positive cases. Hancock Public Health Covid-19 Update 2022-01-28

The Ohio Department of Health issued new quarantine  guidelines today.  Liberty-Benton Local Schools will be operating under these guidelines beginning Tuesday, October 26, 2021.

What a great time to be an Eagle! Most recently, we were awarded 24 of 25 stars on Ohio’s School Report Cards, which give parents/guardians, community members, educators and policymakers’ information about how districts are performing. Schools are graded on Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation, and Early Literacy. 
Additionally, Liberty-Benton received a grade of A- from Niche, which is designed to help connect students and families with the schools and neighborhoods that suit them best. Niche considers academics, teachers, clubs and activities, sports, resources and facilities, diversity, college prep, administration, and even food when issuing grades. Some of our highlights include:
  • #57 of 608 for best school districts for athletes in Ohio
  • #58 of 607 for districts with the best teachers in Ohio
  • #87 of 607 for best school districts in Ohio
Coming up at the end of this month is third grade reading guarantee testing. As a district, we will administer our own assessments to help tailor instruction for the remainder of the school year.
As we progress further into this school year, we will maintain our focus on academics, athletics and the arts so our students have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in life beyond Liberty-Benton. 
Thank you and congratulations to our staff, students and the community on making Liberty-Benton one of the premier learning destinations. As always… GO EAGLES!

Liberty-Benton Celebrates High Marks on State Report Card
Liberty-Benton Celebrates High Marks on State Report Card
It is hard to believe, but we are nearly a month into the new school year already. We have had a great start to the year, including some celebratory moments. 
Ohio’s School Report Cards were released on September 15 and Liberty-Benton ranked 13th in the state out of 607 districts. This was the first time in two years that report cards were issued because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Replacing the traditional letter grade scoring system is a five-star rating, with one being the lowest and five being the highest. We were one of only three districts in Northwest Ohio that received 24 of 25 stars. Only 32 districts in the entire state received a four or five star rating.
Districts were scored on the following: Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation and Early Literacy. College, Career, Workforce and Military Readiness is a new category, but districts will not be scored in this category until future years. The report card is only one measure of success for Ohio’s schools, but we are so proud of this accomplishment! Thank you to our staff and students for all of your hard work, and to our community for your continued support. 
Our high school students are already realizing the impact of a more modern learning environment thanks to our high school renovations that took place this past summer.  Again, this was made possible by our generous community support of our Bond Issue in May 2019.  I can’t wait for this project to be completed with the grand opening of our new K-8 in August of 2023.
Lastly, fall is finally here. I hope everyone enjoys the cooler temperatures and the brilliant fall colors, and don’t forget to support our student-athletes or performing arts students at an upcoming event. And as always … GO EAGLES!
