Princeton City School District students, staff, and families - Thank you for sharing your voice through our YouthTruth surveys!
Your voices are paramount to our schools’ improvement efforts. In April, we launched our second annual YouthTruth survey in partnership with YouthTruth, a national nonprofit that helps districts improve their school climate and culture. We heard from our students, staff, and families about how we are doing and how we can improve.
YouthTruth is a very powerful tool for us to look at ourselves honestly and critically and push ourselves to get better. Hearing what our students, staff, and families think is one of the most important things we can do as educators.
YouthTruth will be completing the analysis of our survey results, and we should receive the survey reports in the next several weeks. While we will explore the findings more over the next several months and strategically use the feedback to inform next year’s planning, I sincerely thank you for your participation. We will let you know what we are currently doing and planning to do with your feedback.
Thank you for your voice - it makes the #vikingdiff!
Teacher Appreciation Week
March 1, 2022As we enter the month of March, we are seeing sharp declines in the numbers reported for COVID-19 positive staff members and students in Princeton. This reduction is right in line with what we are seeing in our region. We have stayed in regular communication with Greg Kestermann and Dr. Feagins with Hamilton County Public Health. During the regularly scheduled meeting on Friday we heard that:- Our r-value remains below 1.0- Last week there were only 80 cases per 100,000 people which is also a sharp decline compared to January 2022Please continue to report cases in our COVID-19 tracker and the district will continue to report to Hamilton County Public Health and the Ohio Department of Health on a weekly basis.With the local statistics we are currently seeing, I made the recommendation to the Board of Education to move to mask optional for all students and staff. We ask that you continue to practice and encourage the layers of protection against the COVID-19 virus:- sanitizing- keeping vaccinations up-to-date- regular hand washing- staying home if sickPlease stay tuned for more details as we head into the month of March.Thank you very much and Go Vikes!Empowering each student for college, career and life success
