Superintendent Roundtable with State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria

On Tuesday, April 4 State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Paolo DeMaria, visited Tiffin Middle School to engage with local superintendents.  Superintendents from Seneca, Huron, Erie, Sandusky, and Ottawa Counties were invited to a roundtable discussion with Mr. DeMaria.  The meeting started off with superintendent introductions and immediately proceeded with highlights, local updates, and good news from Port Clinton by Superintendent Patrick Adkins, and Tiffin City Schools Superintendent Dr. Vicki Wheatley.  Mr. DeMaria focused on the latest information from the statehouse and ODE.  The roundtable chat focused on Pre-K through grade 12 concerns and celebrations.  Tiffin City Schools focused on the numerous partnerships entered into with that provide opportunities for our students to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

September 16, 2016 - TCS Report Card 

From Dr. Vicki Wheatley:

Our goal is to do what is best academically, socially, and emotionally for each individual student. We are doing amazing things at Tiffin City Schools. We know our students are ready to conquer the world when they leave us. Unfortunately, the State has placed a moving target for student achievement with ongoing and changing assessments that do not align with what our students actually accomplish. We take our achievement seriously and accept responsibility for the results. We will evaluate the scores and create an improvement plan.  We do great things at Tiffin City Schools and we will continue to do so.

I would like to thank our Board of Education members for their support, vision, and guidance.  Thank you to our leadership team for their direction and our teachers and support staff for forming positive relationships with our students and families. Most importantly, our business leaders and community have supported our schools which has fostered a strong foundation needed for student success.

It brings me great pleasure to welcome you to our schools.  It is an honor and privilege to be the Superintendent of Tiffin City Schools.  As the Superintendent, I take seriously the high standards I must meet that require success for all students.  I feel it is important to work with our board of education to identify, prioritize, and set policies and governance procedures that maximize the success of all students.  Additionally, it is imperative to establish a vision, expect continuous improvement, and develop a focused plan for achieving district goals.  Collaboration and transparency provide for strengthened relationships with our stakeholders and community.

We take great pride in being an outstanding, student centered District with caring staff, administrators, and board of education members.  Our primary charge is to provide a successful and meaningful experience for all students.  Our expectations are to see growth in every student and we require our staff to do all they can to support and participate with this process.  We hold true to our mission statement that Tiffin City Schools in partnership with students, families and community, will create a learning environment where all students will be provided the opportunity to achieve at their full learning potential.  We want you to feel welcome in our buildings and encourage you to attend our many events that involve our talented students.  We value your feedback; if I can assist you in any way, please contact me at: 419.447.2515 or Vicki_wheatley@tiffincityschools.org.

Respectfully,
 
Dr. Vicki Wheatley

Re:           New school meningococcal immunization requirements

 

With the start of the 2016-2017 school year, Ohio will be faced with new meningococcal vaccine requirements for students entering seventh and 12th grades.

Students entering seventh grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine in addition to the current requirement of having one dose of the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine.

Students entering the 12th grade will need to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.
