Dayton Public Schools will avoid state takeover this year, under the state budget agreement sent to Governor Mike DeWine.
The deal puts a temporary moratorium on the creation of new Academic Distress Commissions (ADC), the state-appointed groups that step in when school districts repeatedly receive failing grades.
An ADC would have stepped in at DPS this fall if its scores didn’t improve. With the approval of the state budget, the district will avoid that fate for at least for one year.
Dayton Public Schools Vice President Jocelyn Rhynard says she’s relieved.
