State funding to Copley-Fairlawn will increase by 50 percent over the next two years.
While Copley-Fairlawn schools will benefit from new state funding numbers over the next two years, Revere will not. The Copley-Fairlawn School District is expected to get nearly $1.2 million in 2014 from state funding, according to preliminary numbers from the Ohio Department of Education. That is $234,00 more than in 2013, when the district received just under $1 million, an increase of 25 percent. In 2015 the state is expected to dish out $1.5 million to the district, another 25 percent boost, resulting in another $292,000. Revere, however, will not recieve a boost in funding over the next two years. In 2013 the district received $1.3 million from the state. The specific numbers for school funding in Gov.

He will continue his work with the Revere Local Schools board.
Tom Kelley might be stepping down from the Bath Zoning Commission, but he’ll still be plenty involved with the community. Kelley, who is also a member of the Revere Local Schools board, put in his resignation from the zoning commission before the meeting last week. After being elected to the school board in 2012, he realized it was too much to take on at once. “That’s a huge time commitment,” Kelley said. And the timing is right on the zoning commission. The group has been rewriting the township’s zoning code for the past few years, and that project is in its final stages. Kelley said his term was going to run out at the end of June, anyway, and he thought the new year would be a good time for some new officers to take charge. Kelley, a…

Compare local districts with our searchable database.
The state has released the rest of the state report card information, and the news is good for both Copley-Fairlawn and Revere schools. While the data is still preliminary, as of now, the Revere district has again achieved the highest possible state report card rating for the 13th year in a row: “Excellent with Distinction.” Copley-Fairlawn earned the same rating, improved from last year's "Excellent." School and district report cards are usually released at the beginning of the school year, but that timeline has been pushed back while the state auditor investigates whether some districts manipulated attendance data. Some preliminary data—without the ratings—was released in late September. The final results and the PDFs of the report cards…

There are no overall ratings yet, but Copley-Fairlawn and Revere parents, teachers and community members can take a look at how the district did on some of the important indicators like graduation rate and adequate yearly progress.
Editor's Note: This story was update at 8:06 a.m. on Sept. 27. Traditional state report cards for local school districts have been delayed, but the Ohio Department of Education today released some preliminary data to give the public an idea of how their local school district performed last year. The information does not include an overall rating, such as “excellent” or “effective,” that the public is used to seeing. The state is investigating whether some districts manipulated attendance data and is holding off on releasing final report cards until that investigation is complete. The available information includes the percentage of students who scored proficient or higher on state tests and the graduation rates for the 2011-2012 school …

The Everett Road bridge will remain closed until Friday. Here's how Bath Police are helping with back to school.
The Ohio Department of Transportation is still working on the Everett Road bridge, which means Revere High School cannot be accessed without taking a detour. Bath Township police Chief Mike McNeely said officers will be stationed at both intersections of Revere Road and Everett Road (yes, there are two) directing traffic in the morning and when school lets out. Bath police will also be in the neighborhoods of Kemery Road, North Hametown Road and Cleveland-Massillon Road to watch for speeding cars. "We have residents calling in to report cars driving too fast in their neighborhood," McNeely said. "So we're going to radar over there. Also, I don't think people realize there is a school zone on Cleveland-Massillon Road along Bath Elementary…
