LHS Fall Service Projects
The LHS Student Council is collecting new and gently used tennis shoes, as well as monetary donations, for students in need within the district. Student Council is aware of the need/importance of a quality pair of shoes for young people. We would like to help some of our Louisville families with this sometimes costly purchase.
Please donate throughout the month of October. Student Council will have a bin in the LHS Main Office for donations. We will also be at the Louisville v. Massillon football game on Friday, October 19th where we will be collecting both donated shoes and monetary donations.
If you feel your child would qualify for a donated pair of shoes, please email Mrs. Todd or
Mrs. Kidd at the high school. (firstname.lastname@example.org, Brittany.email@example.com)

We are proud that Louisville High School has received the first-ever College Success Award!
Launched by GreatSchools, the College Success Award recognizes and celebrates high schools like ours that go beyond simply getting our students to graduation and also focus on ensuring students are prepared to succeed in college and ultimately careers.
Louisville is one of 157 schools in Ohio to be honored with the Award, which is based on data about how our school prepares students to succeed after high school, including whether they enroll in college, are ready for college-level coursework when they get there, and persist into their second year. Learn more about the award and the promising practices from other Award-winning schools at https://www.greatschools.org/gk/csa-winners/.
New Attendance Policy - HB 410
Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, several changes have taken effect. Excessive absences interfere with students’ progress in mastering knowledge and skills necessary to graduate from high school and prepare for higher education and the workforce. (Click for more information)
Graduation Requirements 2018 and Beyond
Ohio House Bill 487 updated Ohio’s graduation requirements to ensure that all students are ready for success in college and work. The new requirements did not change the current courses or number of course credits that students must complete to be eligible for graduation. Additionally, every student in the Class of 2018 and beyond will have the opportunity to take a nationally recognized college admission exam free of charge in Grade 11.
Students will now have three pathways to graduation. These options are in addition to the Louisville High School diploma requirements (22 credits) as outlined in the student handbook and our guidance department webpage.
New Options for Honors Diplomas
The Ohio Department of Education (ODE) has recently announced the opportunity for students graduating in 2017 to pursue one of six honors diplomas. An honors diploma signifies that a student has challenged themselves by taking and succeeding at high-level coursework and in real-world experiences.
The Louisville City School District is pleased to offer five of the six available designations:
1. Academic Honors Diploma
2. Career Tech Honors Diploma
3. STEM Honors Diploma
4. Arts Honor Diploma (includes dance, drama/theatre, music and visual art)
5. Social Science and Civic Engagement Honors Diploma
To be eligible, students must complete units, or credits, in specific subjects (see attached criteria chart). Students must meet all but one of the criteria to qualify for the Honors Diploma. The revised criteria from ODE include the submission of a portfolio of work and a minimum of 30 hours of documented relevant field experience. Download Criteria Chart
Check out the Guidance website for many new scholarships. There are new applications added as they become available!
