STATE STANDARDS INITIATIVES
The Ohio Department of Education has clearly defined standards that delineate what all children should know and be able to do as they progress through the grade levels. Well-defined State standards ensure that parents, teachers and administrators will be able to monitor students’ development. As a minimum, GVA will adhere to these ODE standards to prepare our students for academically challenging high schools and colleges.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM
GVA’s Elementary Foreign Language Program objective is to have students reach an Intermediate or Advanced level of language proficiency in a target language other than English. Research has proven that studying languages at an early age lays a strong foundation for advanced language studies as well as an aptitude for foreign languages. It also fosters a fertile environment for the cross-cultural exchange of ideas and mutual understanding. Each student is required to participate in the Foreign Language program every year he/she attends GVA. Parents and students select from two languages currently being taught one period a day, 2 days a week: Ukrainian or Spanish.
Global Village Academy affirms that consistent with applicable law and School District policies, it shall not discriminate against any employee or student on the basis of race, creed, color, national origin, sex, marital status, religion, age, ancestry, veteran's status, or disability in its recruitment, selection, training, utilization, termination, or other employment-related activities.
STATEWIDE TESTING & COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE
The Global Village Academy is a community school established under Chapter 3314.041 of the Ohio Revised Code. The school is a public school and students enrolled in and attending the school are required to take Ohio Achievement Assessments, Ohio Graduation Tests, or any other examinations prescribed by law. In addition, there may be other requirements for students at the school that are prescribed by law. Students who have been excused from the compulsory attendance law for purpose of home education as defined by the Administrative Code shall no longer be excused for that purpose upon their enrollment in a community school.
