2021-22 Back-to-School Info CLICK HERE
At the July 19th Board of Education Superintendent Mr. Sotlar announced that the Canal Winchester School District AT THIS TIME would not require masks for the school year, including busing.  Staff and students are more than welcome to wear masks if they choose.  This statement is with the knowledge that if any local, state or federal mandate or requirement is handed down the school district will follow those mandates.  Over the past 18 months we have all learned it is difficult to predict the future.  The district is continuing to keep cleaning and disinfecting practices in place.  Returning to a normal school year with all students in attendance will be a challenge, but continuing to keep safe distance where and when possible will continue.  These practices will vary by building.  The district does anticipate more announcements from the state regarding the school year in the near future.

FINISHED HIGH SCHOOL RENOVATIONS

Canal Winchester School District 2020 Highlights

PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE  Empowering All Students For Success means more than academic achievement.  For our students to be prepared for life beyond graduation and for meaningful, self-sustaining careers, we must focus on the whole individual.  Our Canal Winchester Portrait of a Graduate describes the skills and attributes that will empower all students for success now and in the future. The portrait describes the skills, attributes and character traits we believe our students need for life beyond graduation. Our goal is to develop the whole child: academically, mentally, socially, and behaviorally. The six themes are all equally important.  The district will take the next year or so to develop a plan of action to implement the Portrait in grades K-12 and develop a measuring tool. We must focus on this as much as we do our academics. They are both important if we truly want to empower all students for success. PORTRAIT OF A GRADUATE

Respectful Citizens show empathy, compassion and kindness ? act with integrity ? model appropriate behaviors in different settings
