Collection of military family information.

Lake Local Schools is asking that all district families please take a moment to fill out the form below.

The State of Ohio is requiring all schools to identify students with a parent or legal guardian who is an ACTIVE MEMBER of the Armed Forces or National Guard. We will report this information in the Educational Management Information System (EMIS) of the Ohio Department of Education. Please assist the district in complying with this requirement by providing your student’s name and the guardian’s military affiliation (if any). Please provide this information by February 20, 2018. If you have questions regarding this survey please contact the District office at 419-661-6677.

There will be 99 yard lines and 2 end zones sold at $20.00 each.  At the five (5) home Varsity Football games, TWO lucky yard line ticket holders will win $50.00 if the play stops and is marked on their yard line at the end of the First and Third Quarters.  If the winning yard is not purchased, the money will rollover to the next quarter; double the winnings!

If you would like to purchase a yard line or yard lines for the 2017 Varsity Football Season please contact Susan Deal at 419-250-8117.

You can select a specific yard line, but they will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.  If you do not want a specific yard line, we will randomly pick the others at our next meeting on 8/17/16.

Lake students will be taking state achievement tests online this spring

Lake Local teachers and administrators are prepping for a change in the state tests for this spring.   The Ohio Department of Education is no longer allowing the district to assess students with the paper and pencil versions of the state achievement tests.   Our teachers and administrators are putting plans in place to assist students in becoming more comfortable with the new testing conditions, and to practice with this type of testing.

Students in grades 3-12 will be tested at some point during the testing window. The testing window begins in March and will be completed by mid-May. The state achievement tests are approximately 90-105 minutes in length, depending on grade level and content area.

Parents are encouraged to talk to their children about these tests. As with any new situation, there will be a learning curve. We do not want students to become upset or anxious because of these changes.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the spring testing, please contact Jodi Takats at
