March 2021 Parent Update

posted Mar 17, 2021, 9:05 AM by Greg Williams

The final quarter of the year has arrived and a number of spring events come with it.  Please watch for information from your schools about whether health conditions will allow for some spring events.  Please remember that some spring events may look significantly different with health guidelines in place.

3rd quarter report cards will be available on Powerschool and can be printed for you by request—please call your school if you would like a printed copy.  End of the year report cards will be mailed home for all students.

FAFSA—Parents of Seniors

The FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is an extremely important document for all seniors to complete during their senior year.  Completing the FAFSA often reveals a number of financial resources for students to continue their education that they may not have realized are available, including grants and scholarships.

We encourage all parents to help their senior children with the FAFSA to see what resources are available to them.  We also have many resources at school to help families complete the application.  If you have questions about how we can support your family in completing the FAFSA, please contact Mrs. Justice, DHS Counselor, at tjustice@newlebanonschools.org or 937 687 1366.

Child Identity Theft—Ohio Attorney General

Identity theft is a growing problem in society and, sadly, is becoming more prevalent with children’s information.  Please see the information below for information about how to avoid child identity theft.

Child identity theft occurs when someone fraudulently uses a child’s identity to open accounts or receive benefits. The imposter may be a family member, friend or a stranger and may use the child’s name and Social Security number to open new accounts for cell phones, utilities, credit cards and even mortgages.

Imposters may get away with using a child's identity for years because children typically do not try to check or access credit. As a result, child identity theft usually is not discovered until the child applies for college financial aid, a car loan or employment.

To help combat this problem, Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost has launched a video aimed at parents to understand what a child security freeze is and how to place a freeze. The video can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y10sEjOhj8w&feature=youtu.be.

Special Education Family Survey

Parents of students who are served in special education, the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) would like to invite you to participate in a short, 25 question survey about your involvement in your student’s education.  Research suggests that parental involvement is a key predictor of positive educational outcomes. You may be eligible to participate if your child has an IEP and receives special education services.  The purpose of collecting this information is to improve services for students with disabilities across Ohio.  If you are eligible to participate and you enroll in the study, you will be entered in a drawing for several $50 Amazon gift cards.  Please click on this link https://osu.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_38GasERthq6j62G to determine if you are eligible.

University of Dayton Research Study

The University of Dayton shared this request with area schools.  Participation in the study is completely voluntary.

Dayton Kids is a research study being conducted by professors at the University of Dayton and Harvard University. The purpose of the project is to understand how stress and other difficult circumstances in childhood are related to future health problems. Many children and adults are exposed to stressful environments, and we are working to understand why some people are resilient while others are more susceptible to a stressful environment. Our goal is to be able to better identify susceptible children and families in the future and help doctors and other providers give them the help they need. We hope this will be of particularly benefit to Dayton parents and kids. 

Families with children 8-10 years old can participate in the Dayton Kids study and will be paid $75 to compensate for their time. Families may participate up to 5 times over 2 years, which means each family could get $375 over the course of the study.

All study visits are held over Zoom for the safety of participants and the research team. At these visits we will provide a set of questionnaires for the family to complete. We will ask questions regarding life experiences, exposure to stress, family, and coping. We will also ask for a saliva sample to help identify physical markers of stress and resilience in DNA. All information shared by participants (question answers and DNA samples) will be carefully protected, kept private, and never shared outside the research team.  If interested, please contact study administrators at daytonkids@mclean.harvard.edu or 937 469 8959.

New Lebanon regular board meetings are now streamed using Google Meets.  Directions to connect to the meetings are available in the Recent Announcements section of the website beginning the Friday before the meeting.  Online viewers are not able to participate in the meeting.
