NHA State Charter Approved!
We are thrilled to announce that New Horizons Academy has been approved by the Ohio Department of Education to become one of the newest non-public, chartered schools in the state of Ohio!
The New Horizons Academy teachers, staff, and students did an outstanding job with the Ohio Department of Education’s site visit on January 25!
Since New Horizons Academy has been providing outstanding educational and intervention opportunities for years, there will be very few changes in day-to-day operations with the charter’s approval. The biggest change is that many of our students’ home school districts have begun transporting them to New Horizons Academy if their families live more than two miles away from the school but less than 30 minutes away. Thank you to Archbold, Defiance, Delta, Liberty Center, Napoleon, Northeastern Local, Patrick Henry, Stryker, and Wauseon!
As a nonpublic, chartered school, the students’ home school districts are still responsible for their individualized education plans (IEP’s) while Wauseon Exempted Village Schools will be responsible for all testing. New Horizons Academy and its staff will continue to work closely with parents and home school districts on IEP goals and ETR plans.
New Horizons Academy is looking forward to its final ODE site visit before the end of this school year. NHA’s newly-formed school board will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m. in the Hope Center.
