The dedication of Dorr's teaching staff is second to none as they work tirelessly and together to help every child be his/her personalbest.  

Although the Ohio Department of Education's (ODE) system for rating schools is changing, it is important to reflect that for the past several years, the efforts of Dorr Elementary School students have consistently allowed the school to achieve an "Excellent" rating from the ODE.   

We are very proud of the entire Dorr family - students, parents, faculty, and staff - for consistently being recognized for outstanding academic achievement. We truly are committed to being exceptional - - without exception!

Testimonial from Dorr parent
Brian and Holly Wahl

We love everything about Dorr Elementary! The teachers and administration are completely student-focused, with one common goal - - meeting and exceeding the needs of each and every student. This is done in numerous ways to address the unique needs of every child. It is abundantly apparent that the teachers enjoy working with children, and truly care about every single one of them. There is such positive energy in every classroom, and parent involvement is welcomed and encouraged! We can't imagine sending our kids anywhere else.

Reading Improvement Monitoring Plan (RIMP) Parent Breakfast
One of our responsibilities as a school is to support parents in the educational process.  We are always eager to have parents as partners so we can guide students to develop their greatest potential.

At the beginning of the school year, schools were required to identify students in grades kindergarten through third grade who were “not on track” for reading.   These students were placed on a Reading Improvement Monitoring Plan (RIMP) to ensure that the students are receiving additional support for reading.  Currently, students are given additional support and their progress is monitored to determine next steps.

As part of our effort to assist parents in an educational partnership, Dorr Elementary recently invited parents to a breakfast to share a number of reading strategies to support their children at home.  This included information about a parent assisted reading program, reading websites and ipad applications, reading resources, ways to build readers at home, and the top ten ways to help children read in the real world.

Thank you to our parents who were able to attend the event and to the Dorr Elementary staff members who shared valuable information for parents assisting students at home----Ashley Grant, Jan King, Lynn Sarno, Denise Walsh, and Amy Zajkowski.  Thank you for your part in helping students become better readers!
