Toledo Public Schools strives to provide an environment where all students can thrive and be challenged and supported. We currently support that goal through a variety of approaches:
- Curriculum differentiation
- Gifted sections of ELA and Math for 5th, 6th and 7th grades
- Subject acceleration and EHSO
- Whole grade acceleration following ODE guidelines and using the Iowa Acceleration Scale and approved assessments
- College Credit Plus (CCP)
- Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes
Sophomores and select juniors at all Toledo Public Schools will be taking the PSAT/NMSQT test on Wednesday, October 16 - which means the rest of the high school students will not have classes that day.
To learn more details about this testing schedule - and all others for the 2019-2020 school year, please click here: High School Release & Early Release Testing Days
The Ohio Department of Education released its annual report cards for public schools on Thursday, September 12, and Toledo Public Schools has good news to share with the community. The district moved up one grade level on the report card and is no longer considered to be in Academic Distress as described by the State of Ohio.
Administrators from TPS, along with the Toledo Board of Education, want to provide a full look at the improvements they have seen - and the continued challenges the district faces - so they have developed several documents for the public to get a better handle on the state's numbers.
Finally, please take a minute to view this video of district leaders talking about the report card results: A Message to Our Community
