Coronavirus

Dear Beavercreek Families,


As a result of Governor DeWine’s order to keep Ohio schools closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, Beavercreek City Schools must once again alter schedules, procedures, and planned activities. Our district’s administrative team has been actively working in anticipation of this order to ensure Beavercreek City Schools can assist students and families with end of school year procedures.


KDI assessments scheduled for May 4 have been canceled. The district is hoping to reschedule the kindergarten screenings and will communicate once we have more information regarding Dewine’s orders.


Students will not receive new assignments or additional coursework the last week of the school year, which is May 18-22. Our teaching staff will use the week of May 18 to help students review, catch up, and clean up any lingering academic loose ends before we adjourn for the summer. Students should make every effort to complete any unfinished work and submit for review.  


Final grades will be determined based on criteria communicated earlier this month. Our district formulated specific grading practices for the duration of the school closure period, which can be reviewed on the district’s website. The district will announce when final fourth-quarter grades will be available through ProgressBook.


The district is working on a plan for students to collect belongings from school buildings and the return of textbooks, athletic uniforms and equipment, and other extracurricular items. Each building principal will communicate details to their families when a plan has been finalized. 


All district-issued devices such as iPads and Chromebooks must be turned in by CURRENT SENIORS ONLY. All students who are in grade 12 this school year must return any digital device to the district. Students in all remaining grade levels may keep their district-issued device over the summer months. A detailed plan of action will be communicated to families that includes possible online learning resources for students to access. 


Thank you for your patience as we work through so much uncertainty. It is anticipated we will communicate new information next week to help families plan and prepare for the coming weeks. Together, we will close out this school year strong and be ready for any challenge that lies ahead.
