Hello Beavercreek Families,
As you know our schools have been greatly impacted by the response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and have already transitioned in many ways to accommodate the directives from Governor Mike DeWine and his team. 

I am reaching out to you because we received additional guidance - by the governor’s signing of House Bill 197 - on other areas affecting our students of which you should be aware.

All K-12 standardized testing and state report card requirements are waived for this school year.

Our local schools were granted the authority to graduate any student who is on track to graduate. This permits schools to grant a diploma to any student that the school district has determined is on track to graduate. We will continue to communicate with our senior students and their parents. Our guidance counselors are available to answer any questions about whether your student is currently on track to graduate.

All districts are permitted to continue providing students with lunch. Our district will continue meal services on April 1 for students 18 years of age or younger. Beavercreek City Schools will be communicating additional details to our community in the coming days.

Our local governments - including our school board - may now opt to hold remote/virtual meetings but the public must still have access. While we have the option, we may also meet in person. Regardless, we will notify the public (as always) as to how we will proceed.

Voting in the March 17, 2020 election was extended to April 28, 2020. Voting will take place by mail and in-person voting will be available only for those who are disabled or cannot receive mail. To obtain a vote-by-mail application, you can visit to print an application or you can call the Greene County Board of Elections at (937) 562-6170 or the Montgomery County Board of Elections at (937) 225-5656 and have one sent to you.

Finally, I know these times are tough. They are tough in many ways. We see that. We have families with loved ones on the front lines taking care of those who are sick. We have families with lost income. Changes are happening so quickly and with such a big impact. While we cannot take that hardship away, we can support each other throughout all of this. Know that we are here to support you and your child.

We will do our best to keep you informed and to work through the changes as they come our way. Additional information can always be found on our website at
