The Rittman Reporter, a newsletter for the Rittman Schools community, is intended to keep residents, many of whom do not have children attending the schools, informed about our district.
It is our goal to mail this newsletter to each home in the district. If you know of someone who did not receive a newsletter and resides within the district, please send an email to roc_tadams [at] tccsa [dot] net or call 330-927-7128 and leave the name and
Delta Arts held a contest over these past few months to re-name the old high school. Five judges decided between many entries for its new name. We would like to recognize and thank the judges: Betty Gift, Dave Plahuta, Mark Whims, Dennis Copenhaver and Suzanne Kasserman.
The winning name was submitted by Margaret Moedt, a former Rittman resident and MS teacher. She is currently residing in North Carolina but hopes to move back to her hometown of Rittman in the very near future.
The old Rittman High School will now be called Rittman Heritage Hall.
The Board of Education and Mr. Ritchie would like to thank Delta Arts for getting the community involved in this effort to re-name a building that has served us well as a high school and continues to have a purpose for the residents of Rittman.
Rittman High School was recently named a School of Promise by the Ohio Department of Education.
State Superintendent Dr. Richard Ross wrote this excerpt from the letter sent to the school:
The Ohio Department of Education recognizes your success in closing the math or reading achievement gaps for the students in your school. As a former district superintendent, principal and teacher, I know how difficult your job is. I’m proud of your hard work and commitment to overcoming the obstacles that you and your students face each and every day. You are providing the boys and girls in your school with the skills they need to be successful.
As one of an elite group of 141 Schools of Promise in Ohio, you have set a strong example of what we can achieve when educators, parents and community members come together to help all students succeed. I thank you for your leadership and ask you to also pass on my thanks to others who made your success possible.
We appreciate the hard work and dedication of all our students and parents, staff and administration. Although the designation is for RHS, we recognize the School of Promise as an achievement for the district because we know a foundation is laid in not only the home but also the elementary and middle school levels. Thanks to all for your continued support of our schools!
ProgressBook updated its Parent and Student Access over the summer. Your old account will no longer work. We have issued new registration keys and access letters. At this time, you should be able to create a new account on the new web portal.
If you are a parent of a child in grade 2-12 and have not received your Parent Access Letter, please contact the school for a new one.
