National School Counseling Week

National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 6–10, 2023, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.

The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Ranking Ohio’s school districts from 1 to 607 based on the stars they received on new state report cards
Posted Sep. 16, 2022 Cleveland.com

While the new Ohio school report card gives a star rating to various categories, there is no overall star grade assigned for this year. So cleveland.com calculated the total score for all 607 districts reported to show which schools scored the best across the board.

The Miami East Local School District Ranked #32 out of 607 School Districts statewide.

Not only was the District #1 in Miami County, Miami East High School scored 5 stars (highest rating possible) in all areas of the report card (Achievement, Progress and Gap Closing).   In the area of "Progress", there was "significant evidence" that students made more progress than expected.  In addition, MEHS had a 99% graduation rate. 


Current job openings and substitute positions are posted under "Viking News" on the Miami East Website.
