Beverly school receives designation

Beverly-Center Elementary principal Megan Miller has received a letter from the Ohio Department of Education naming Beverly-Center Elementary School a 2012 School of Promise. In the letter, Michael Sawyers, acting superintendent of public instruction for the Ohio Department of Education, states, “Your school is in a prestigious group of 163 schools that achieved this honor on the Local Report Card for the 2011-2012 school year. Strategies by you and your staff to close the mathematics and reading achievement gap for students who represent a range of socioeconomic and ethnic backgrounds are working, and we hope you will share them with other Ohio schools.”

“The Ohio Department of Education plans to spotlight your school as a strong example of what is possible when students, educators, parents and community members come together and believe that all students can succeed.”

In recognition of their distinction, the school will be receiving a School of Promise banner to display in the school building.



Beverly-Center Elementary School has set registration for the 2013 – 2014 school year. Parents may stop at the school any time during the week of March 11-15 during regular school hours to register. Those registering a student must bring the child’s birth certificate, immunization record and proof of residence, if necessary, to schedule a screening. Screening has been scheduled for April 15-16 and screening appointments will be set once registration is completed.
