Notice of Data Release
A U.S. District Court has ordered that 2013-2014 school year records from the Ohio Department of Education’s Educational Management Information System be turned over to Disability Rights Ohio as part of an ongoing lawsuit.

Students’ names, addresses and social security numbers are not part of the information to be released. Ohio is one of only three states that do not allow their departments of education to collect this data, to protect student privacy. Data to be released for each student include student ID number, school name, grade, gender, race, age and disability category. The records also reveal student performance on the state’s Ohio Achievement Assessments and Ohio Graduation Tests, as well as tests related to Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee. Student suspensions and expulsions also are listed.

Parents may object to the data release.  The court must receive objections no later than Sept. 12, 2014.  A copy of the order and instructions on how parents may object can be found here. 

What is a School Lunch?
Coshocton City Schools is required to follow the mandates of the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 when providing school breakfast and lunch.  Here are some of the requirements that must be met in order to provide our students with FREE breakfast and lunch.
  • School meals must be high in nutrients and adequate in calories, consistent with the latest nutrition science.
  • School meals are "right-sized" and reflect the appropriate balance between food groups.
  • School meal standards are in line with dietary recommendations for protein intake.
  • School meal standards allow students to select at least three of the five food components on their plate. Students MUST take at least three items to qualify as a school lunch.  One of the three items must be a fruit or vegetable. The school cannot provide free milk to students who pack their lunch as this is a violation of the standards. 
     
 
FREE Breakfast and Lunch
Coshocton City Schools will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for School Year 2014-2015.  All enrolled students of Coshocton High School and Coshocton Elementary School are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge  
Supply Lists
Supply Lists for grades K - 6 are available to view here.       
2014-15 School Calendar
At the March 13th Board of Education meeting the 2014-15 school calendar was adopted.  The first day for students will be Wednesday, August 20.  Open House for Coshocton Elementary will be Tuesday, August 19 at 6:00 pm.  Coshocton High School will have Open House on August 19 at 7:00 pm.  
School Delays and Closings
When weather conditions warrant a two hour delay or for school to close a phone call is made to the primary contact phone number for each student.  If you change phone numbers, please send a note to the school secretary so that the records can be updated and your new number can be added to the calling system. 
When there is a two hour delay, breakfast is NOT served.  Please be sure that your student(s) have breakfast before coming to school.  Bus routes will run two hours later than the normal schedule.  The first bell for elementary students will be 10:50 so students that walk or come by private transportation should plan to arrive at 10:45.  The first bell for high school students is 9:38 so students should not arrive before 9:30.
