As part of the State of Ohio's initiative to encourage best practices and innovative programming, school districts working on new teaching and testing standards, as well as school safety practices, were able to apply for waiver days for the upcoming school year to provide additional time to train staff. As part of the Westlake City School District’s commitment to excellence, district administrators created a district-wide plan for staff development that focuses on targeted initiatives and areas of improvement in each building. To implement that plan, the district requested and just received approval for three waiver days, which will slightly change the upcoming school calendar. 

The waiver days are:
  • Sept. 3, 2013
  • Jan. 6, 2014
  • Feb. 14, 2014
On these three days, school will not be in session so staff members can participate in professional development to identify and explore ways in which curriculum, assessment and programming can be appropriately blended while meeting the needs of all students. The district will share training, collaboration strategies and instructional strategies across grade levels and disciplines.

We look forward to starting the 2013-14 school year and thank you for your patience.
