BASA Member Update 3.2.18
ECOT’s Closing and High School Equivalence Exams With the closing of the Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT) in January, many former ECOT students who were between the ages of 16 and 19 sought to enroll in their school districts of residence in order to immediately withdraw and take one of the high school equivalence exams. Obviously, this would negatively impact graduation rates in those school districts. The education management organizations worked with the Ohio Department of Education to address this situation, and last Friday ODE issued this guidance: http://education.ohio.gov/Topics/Testing/Ohio-Options-for-Adult-Diploma/HSE Please share this information with the appropriate staff members in your district. We are also grateful to ODE for its assistance in addressing this situation. State Legislative Conference – Tuesday, March 6 The annual State Legislative Conference (co-sponsored by BASA, OASBO, and OSBA) will be held next Tuesday, March 6, at the Sheraton Columbus next to the Statehouse. In addition to hearing an update on current legislation, there are also the opportunities to have lunch with your legislators and/or their aides and to visit legislators in their offices.
