October 16th - 20th is National School Bus Safety Week
School districts throughout the state, including Anthony Wayne recently released a more comprehensive companion to the state's district Report Card. Called a "Quality Profile" the report contains additional accountability measures that define a high quality education that are not captured by the State Report Card.
The Quality Profile helps to evaluate the effectiveness of a school district beyond standardized testing measures. The content is based on six categories; academic, arts, student leadership and activities, fiscal stewardship, parent and community involvement, and student services.
Participating districts determine factors they value in education that are not being measured by the state, resulting in a more comprehensive profile that measures those components that the community considers most important.
The Quality Profile is sponsored by The Alliance for High Quality Education, a state-wide education consortium that works to improve educational opportunities for students and to represent member districts in matters of educational policy and funding.

AW District Moves Forward With Parts of the Facilities Master Plan
In 2016, the District Facilities Master Plan was finalized to take the initial steps to modernize our current facilities and replace Whitehouse Primary. With the approval of the Fall 2016 Bond Issue, we were able to move forward and implement the vision of the facilities master plan. Over the last 9 months school district personnel have worked closely with architects from Stantec and SSOE to design plans for renovations, new construction, and parking lot redesigns and additions. During the September board of education meeting, SSOE architects presented schematic designs for the campus traffic/parking lot additions, the new Whitehouse Primary building, and additions and renovations at the High School, Junior High, Fallen Timbers, Monclova Primary, Waterville Primary, and the new Operations facility. Based on requested options for the high school and junior high from the Board of Education, we will continue to work on these plans. You can view the board approved designs and a “Frequently Asked Questions” document on our website at: http://www.anthonywayneschools.org/Construction Projects
Whitehouse Drinking Water
The District received the attached notice from the Village of Whitehouse concerning the latest testing that was completed on the drinking water that is supplied to the Whitehouse area. With this testing event it was determined the same issue exists as was previously found in the last water assessment. We feel it is important to share this notice in order for you to determine if you would prefer to supply your student(s) with water from a different source (e.g., bottled). The District will continue to communicate with Village officials concerning this matter. If you have any questions concerning the notice or the water supply, the Village has offered to take all questions. You may call Steve Pilcher at 419-877-5383.
