Ohio House Bill 197

The Ohio Legislature passed House Bill 197. It effectively:

  • Eliminates state and federal testing, and State Report Cards, for the 2019-2020 school year;

  • Freezes EdChoice eligibility at the 2019-2020 list of 517 buildings;

  • Waives the Third Grade Reading Guarantee retention requirements;

  • Permits schools to grant high school diplomas to students on track to graduate and who have successfully completed the curriculum;

  • Allows special education services to be provided through electronic means;

  • Permits schools to use distance learning to meet minimum instructional hour requirements.


 Free and Reduced Lunch Program and Kirtland Cares
We wanted to let our families with children in the Free and Reduced lunch program know that our drive-through meal pickup is changing. Beginning next week we are limiting pickup of grab-and-go style breakfasts and lunches to Mondays and Wednesdays between 8:30 and 10am. As a reminder, you can pick up those meals at the entrance behind the high school cafeteria. If that window of time does not work for your family, please contact Food Service Director Ginni Vacarro at or call 440.256.3311 x. 4009. The city also assembled a Kirtland C.A.R.E.S. team to support those in need. You can reach them at
