The mission of the Cory-Rawson Local School District, an exceptional, rural educational system in Northwest Ohio, is to assure an education tailored to the individual needs of students by developing sound moral judgment, creative problem solving through challenging coursework, opportunities beyond the classroom and a hive of advanced technology through state-of-the-art facilities, a dedicated staff, and a partnership with the community.  

Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy Registration

      As Cory-Rawson Local Schools prepare for the opening of the 2020-21 school year, it is important for all individuals to be aware that some level of risk will continuously be present when students and school employees use district facilities.  With this in mind, some families may prefer to educate their son(s)/daughter(s) completely online for the 2020-2021 school year.  This will be an option for students in the Cory-Rawson Local School District through the Cory-Rawson Virtual Learning Academy.  Under this option, students would be enrolled in online classes that may/may not be instructed by Cory-Rawson staff members.  Course lessons and assignments will be 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 would still be 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 would be 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).

Coronavirus Information

As I am sure you are aware, the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has made its way to the United States.  While there are no confirmed cases of the virus in Ohio (to my knowledge), I have been in communication with local health officials as well as Wayne Young (and his custodial staff) to discuss preventive measures to protect our students and staff.  With this in mind, we have secured a hearty supply of sanitizing wipes and hand sanitizer for classroom use.  Additionally, Wayne and the custodial staff continue to clean and sanitize in ways consistent with health department recommendations. 

Beyond these steps, Hancock Public Health recommends the following measures to promote health:
  • Use good hand hygiene by washing hands with soap and warm water for a minimum of 20 seconds.

  • If a hand washing station is unavailable, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.

  • Observe good cough and sneeze etiquette by doing so into a bent elbow or tissue.

  • Stay home from work or school if sick and avoid close contact with others.

Lastly, below is a handout from the Ohio Department of Health related to preventive measures.
