Kent City School District, Stanton receive Momentum Awards.
Both the Kent City School District and Stanton Middle School recently received a 2019 Momentum Award from the State Board of Education. This annual recognition is given to districts and schools for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year.
The Kent City Schools were one of only 48 of the 611 school districts in Ohio to receive the prestigious district award. Stanton Middle School was one of two schools in Portage County to receive the individual school award.
In order to receive the Momentum Award, a district or a school must have received A’s on all Value-Added measures on the state report card. In addition, winners of the award must also have at least two Value-Added subgroups of students, including overall, gifted, lowest 20 percent in achievement and students with disabilities. Both Stanton Middle School and the Kent City School District earned measures in all four Value-Added subgroups.
Congratulations to our teachers, administrators, staff and students. We are so proud of their hard work and dedication. This shows what great things are happening in the Kent City Schools.
