Lockland High, Dohn High among Schools of Promise



The Cincinnati Enquirer

COLUMBUS - Thirty-one schools across Ohio, including Lockland High School and Dohn Community High School in Avondale, have been named Schools of Promise.

"Many people actually believe that because you're poor, because you're black, because you're Hispanic, that you can't succeed," said Susan Tave Zelman, state superintendent of public instruction. "This isn't so.

"These schools provide the hope - and the promise - that despite the economic, racial or ethnic backgrounds of students and the communities where they live, these students can succeed."

Based on 2003 State and Local Report Card data, 20 elementary schools, two middle schools, six high schools, two community schools and one alternative school met or exceeded stringent criteria for the Schools of Promise program.

These schools will be recognized at a statewide conference on Oct. 22 in Columbus.
