Vermilion Local Schools

Every adult helping every child succeed today, tomorrow, and beyond!


Curriculum Department Overview

The Vermilion Local School District is working toward alignment with Ohio Learning Standards in Mathematics, English-Language Arts, and Literacy in History/Social Studies, Science and Technical subjects.  Twenty-first century learning requires deep understanding and effective use of content for real-world purposes, problem solving, frequent research and writing, as well as effective communication for authentic audiences.  Students deserve to deeply understand content along with why and how information, technology and inspiration are used to comprehend and thrive in the global world.  Well before instruction begins, the desired results for teaching and learning are purposefully designed, assessments are aligned and it is clearly understood how students may demonstrate evidence of learning.  

We believe in a world in which all learners are empowered to discover their own special genius. The administration and faculty in the Vermilion Local School District have shown this by developing an award winning 1:1 technology initiative.  Technology is used to enhance teaching and learning to ensure that all students are prepared for future success in work and life.

Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee

Ohio's Third Grade Reading Guarantee is a program to identify students from kindergarten through grade 3 that are behind in reading. Schools will provide help and support to make sure students are on track for reading success by the end of third grade. The department provides policy guidance, instructional tools, and resources on the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.

The Ohio Department of Education offers information to help school districts, community schools, and chartered nonpublic schools understand the requirements of the Third Grade Reading Guarantee.
