Community School Sponsor
 
Newark City Schools Sponsorship Strategic Plan
 
We believe that:
  • Local public community schools can help to serve the diverse educational needs of a community
  • Public community schools can best serve the community if they are sponsored locally
  • Local public community schools operate best with autonomy, as feasible, and with limited support and oversight from the sponsor.
Mission Statement:  To sponsor local community schools and support them as they work to provide a high quality education to students with diverse needs.
 
Vision Statment:  To accomplish the mission Newark City Schools will respect, as feasible, community school autonomy and provide support and oversight as needed.
 
Goals:
  • To comply with all Ohio requirements in regard to sponsor responsibilities by the 2017 school year
  • To improve the quality of our sponsorship by the 2017 school year
  • To achieve a rating of Exemplary on the ODE sponsor evaluation by the 2019 school year
