Gurney Water Quality Information Update 2-17-16

Today the school district reviewed with the Ohio EPA the official results of the recent water quality samples. We have received clearance from the EPA to allow consumption of tap water at Gurney School with no restrictions. However the district will be making recommendations at the March Board Meeting for consideration and Gurney will remain on bottled water until that time. As part of Consumer Notice the district has provided the results of the recent samples indicating the results were within satisfactory range. Those results are posted at this link.

Also, below are recent commutations regarding water quality at Gurney School:

 
Letter to State Officials Regarding Testing/State Report Card
A group of 20 superintendents and other educational leaders, including Chagrin Falls Superintendent, Robert Hunt, wrote a letter to Ohio legislators, Ohio School Board Members and the Ohio Department of Education leadership to express their concern and displeasure regarding the current reality that we face in our urban, rural and suburban public school districts.  The letter addresses current conditions of student assessment and accountability.  Click here to read an article from cleveland.com and the actual letter.
