(This form must be filled out for all
new students regardless of Military status.)
The Ohio Department of Education is requiring all school districts to collect limited information regarding military families. Please complete this form, sign and return to the Lorain County JVS Principal’s Office.
* In an effort to better support children of military dependents, the Ohio Department of Education proposes to create the Ohio Network for Military Families. The Ohio Network for Military Families will serve as an online "virtual" hub providing information and tools for families and connections to a range of student and family supports.
* The Ohio Department of Education will collaborate with the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Ohio National Guard to connect with counselors, teachers, principals, superintendents, and administrative office staff to inform and educate school staff on how to recognize challenges faced by military families and provide appropriate supports for Ohio's "military kids".
* Districts will also now report which students come from military families so that these students' academic growth can be monitored.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION IN FILLING OUT THIS FORM!
