Ohio’s state board of education has granted Dover City Schools and Dover Middle School a 2017-18 Momentum Award.

Now in its fourth year, the Momentum Award is the state board’s way of recognizing districts and schools that received A’s on every value-added measure included on Ohio’s school and district report cards.

Additionally the school or district must have at least two value-added subgroups of students, which include gifted, lowest 20 percent in achievement and students with disabilities.

As a Momentum Award winner, the district’s and middle school’s report cards show the system is dedicated to its students’ success by ensuring they exceeded the growth expectations in English language arts and mathematics.

This achievement demonstrates Dover’s commitment to recruiting and motivating the high-quality leaders and staff needed to make this happen. This is the second time the district and Dover Middle have earned this designation.

“From our staff to our students and families, I appreciate everyone’s hard work and dedication to achieve this honor. We continue to focus on student achievement at all levels,” Superintendent Carla Birney said. “We recognize this as one indicator of success for our students.”

Only 70 districts and 225 schools statewide received the Momentum Award for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year. Birney said Dover City Schools is honored to be among this group.
