Message From Deputy Saltzman

          Greetings! I want to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Deputy James Saltzman with the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office. I am very excited to be your full time School Resource Officer (SRO)! I completed SRO school a few years ago. The last few years I was the SRO for Cory-Rawson, Liberty-Benton, Arlington, Vanlue, and the Hancock County ESC. I am so glad to see all the schools taking the extra steps to keep the students safe. This year we have a full time SRO at almost every school in the county. I want to thank Cory-Rawson School District for giving me the opportunity to be here and help make a difference.

                                          Thank You,

          Deputy James Saltzman

 CR VLA.jpg

We are happy to announce that Mrs. Boerger has taken over as our K-6 CR VLA instructor.  This gives our CR VLA students a teacher who can provide more direct instruction and focus than the Jefferson County instructors were able to provide.  Students who are behind or struggling to achieve passing grades will be contacted by Mrs. Boerger in order to provide the needed support and instruction that has been missing thus far.  You can contact Mrs. Boerger directly through the VLA system just like you had done with past instructors using the pencil icon. 

Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy Registration

Cory-Rawson Local Schools is offering the option of full-time virtual classes for the 2020-21 school year for students through the Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy.  Under this option, students are enrolled in online classes that may/may not be instructed by Cory-Rawson staff members.  Course lessons and assignments are based on electronic courses created by the Jefferson County Virtual Learning Academy and will differ from those of students physically attending school and/or who may not be attending school in our buildings due to short-term closures.  Curriculum would be aligned to state standards and be as rigorous as curriculum offered "at school."

  • Students educated under this option are still Hornets and have an opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities if other requirements are met (athletic eligibility, for instance).
  • Students participating in the complete online option are eligible to "physically" return to school at the end of a grading period.  It is understood, however, certain circumstances may lead to a change in educational delivery at other times.  Nevertheless, the goal when making changes to the instructional delivery models would occur in a way to promote consistency and learning. 

The link below allows those families choosing the Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy to declare that intention at this time.  If you are unable to access the form or have additional questions related to the Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy please contact Mr. Thiel, Cory-Rawson Elementary Principal ( or 419.963.3415 ext. 1020) or Mrs. Gaietto, Cory-Rawson High School Principal ( or 419.963.3415 ext. 1030).
