Roxbury Elementary Earns Solon’s Seventh National Blue Ribbon School NominationTuesday, March 15, 2016
The Ohio Department of Education this week nominated Roxbury Elementary School for the prestigious U.S. Department of Education National Blue Ribbon School Award. Roxbury is one of only 14 Ohio public schools ODE nominated for the 2016 award. All seven Solon Schools have now been nominated for the National Blue Ribbon School Award.
ODE nominated Roxbury as an “exemplary high performing school.” The nomination is based on high student achievement as rated by the state of Ohio’s 2014-15 Ohio School Report Card accountability measures. To qualify as an “exemplary high performing school” under the U.S. Department of Education guidelines, Roxbury student achievement levels on state assessments in both reading and math ranked in the top tier of all Ohio schools.
“We are honored that ODE has nominated Roxbury for the Blue Ribbon School Award this year,” said Solon Schools’ Superintendent Joseph Regano. “Congratulations to our Roxbury students whose hard work and achievement led to this recognition.”
"Our Roxbury team is elated and so proud of all our students,” said Principal Carla Rodenbucher.
