    Report card shows students are excelling districtwide
    Students in Licking Heights turned in a solid performance on the newest report card issued by the state. The district earned all As and Bs, one of just a handful of districts in the Central Ohio region and the only in Licking County to achieve such a distinction. It also achieved its highest performance index score to date. 
    Let us know what you think!
    As of Aug. 26, Licking Heights has more than 200 students compared to the 2013-14 school year with enrollment at 3,960. In fact, 389 new students have registered this summer. The district is looking at long-term solutions to address overcrowding and wants your opinion. The Board of Education recently held a community conversation to talk about the issue and help parents and residents learn more about the critical needs facing the district. Many of the district's buildings are over capacity: six trailers have been purchased to make room for more classroom space at the high school; some teachers across the district do not have classrooms or space in their classrooms to work with students on an individual basis; hallways are used for learning in some instances; and storage rooms are used as makeshift tutoring rooms or places to hold therapy sessions. The student population has doubled since 2003 when the current high school opened. Comments can also be sent to lhbuildingoptions@laca.org. 
    Energy savings continue to grow
    Cost savings are mounting with the implementation of innovative technology on the heating, ventilation and cooling system and at West Elementary. Officials from AEP were on hand at the Board of Education’s Aug. 19 meeting with a check for $44,152. 
    Straight A Grant
    Licking Heights is part of a collaborative that was recently awarded an $8.4-million grant from the state of Ohio.  The Straight A funds will be used to phase in more digital learning materials in classrooms and move away from printed resources that become outdated and obsolete.
