Teacher Requests and Exemptions

It’s hard to believe that we are planning for next school year already, but we are! We have a “no request” policy for teachers. This has worked well for our district and our classrooms are very well distributed based on boy/girl ratio, as well as behavior and academic needs of our children. We will follow this same policy for the 2014-2015 school year. If you have a teacher that you would like to exempt your child from having, please click on the appropriate link below or see the office secretary for a form.   However, requests will not be accepted.  




May Election: As you may have heard, Defiance City Schools will be placing a Bond Issue on the ballot in May. The district is on track to receive $44,069,423 in state funding for this project, a 6-12 facility. The local taxpayer share is only 21%, or roughly $12M ($11,714,657) of the entire project with roughly $4.3M in Locally Funded Initiatives. Compare that to the nearly $12M in renovations necessary to upgrade the current Middle School and High School buildings. The new facility will allow our students opportunities to become college and career ready in a state of the art building with up-to-date science and computer labs. The funding will also ensure that critical safety upgrades are in place for the security of all students and staff. If you have any questions regarding this bond issue that will be on the ballot May 6, 2014, please contact Superintendent Michael Struble at 419.728.0070. Follow us on Facebook at YesforDefiance or on Twitter @YesForDefiance.
