Wyoming City Schools is continuing the work to build a plan for the future of Wyoming Primary Schools. The next Wyoming Primary Schools Master Planning Community Forum is 6:30 p.m. Monday, March 4 at Wyoming High School. All community members are invited to hear an update on the revised master planning options.

After reviewing the feedback from the online survey and community forum #1, the eight preliminary options have been narrowed to two potential options. Both remaining options include new school buildings on each of the current school sites and provide solutions to the limitations of our current primary school buildings as prioritized by the Wyoming Primary Schools Facilities Steering Committee.

Tremendous work is done across our Wyoming school community to create extraordinary opportunities for students. Wyoming High School Counselor Effie Jansing-Jata exemplifies excellence in her work to empower Wyoming students with the knowledge, perspective, and skills essential for success. 

In her work, Ms. Jansing-Jata:

  • Creates active and engaging learning experiences and environments for students.
  • Supports student and staff member social and emotional well-being.
  • Inspires creative and critical thinking, communication, and collaboration.
  • Embeds inclusive practices in creating safe spaces for all students.
  • Builds partnerships with families, colleagues, and community members for the purpose of student well-being resulting in academic, social and emotional success.

In the words of those who nominated Ms. Jansing-Jata for the WCS Impact Award:

Ms. Jansing-Jata has a foot firmly planted in two worlds at all times - academic health and mental/emotional health - which is not easy.

One of Effie’s best qualities is her attention to detail when it comes to her students.

She has been hugely helpful and influential with my daughters.

Her role is usually behind the scenes, but her positive influence is on every one of my kids’ report cards and in their self-confidence every day!

She is invested in her students and their mental health always comes first.

Using one-on-one meetings, she has counseled my children on how to juggle the academic demands and mental demands of being a teen in high-pressure, fast-paced environments.

Ms. Jansing-Jata equips students with coping tools for optimal mental health and she is always accessible.

Our children are blossoming into their best selves due to Ms. Jansing-Jata’s care and guidance.

When our kids have stumbled, she helps them up and gets them back on track.

You can tell that she finds joy in being around her students and seeing them achieve success in the areas they desire.

The WCS Impact Award recognizes staff members who are making a positive impact in the lives of the students, families, and staff of Wyoming City Schools.

School Districts 

Ohio law prohibits any “political subdivision,” which includes a school district, library, park district, county, township or city, from using public funds to “[p]ublish, distribute, or otherwise communicate information that . . . supports or opposes the nomination or election of a candidate for public office, the investigation, prosecution, or recall of a public official, or the passage of a levy or bond issue,” per Ohio Revised Code Section 9.03.

As a result, school districts cannot spend public funds in any manner to support or oppose the campaign of any individual running for public office.
