Welcome to the 2018-19 edition of the Federal Hocking web site.  We hope you find the information you are looking for—whether it be school schedules, lunch menus, sports events, or news about your school district.  And please make sure to read the District Operating Principles which you will find on this site.


            To visitors to this site that want to learn about our district, we hope you will see why we think we are one of the best kept secrets around when it comes to successful school districts.  We are fiscally sound; we have a great teaching staff including guidance, art, music, and physical education staff at all three of our schools; our students achieve at an exceptionally high rate, with over 85% of last year's graduates going on to college; and our programs win state and national awards including a state championships in computer competitions.  In addition to our strong academic programs (our high school has the highest graduation standards in the state) we have a full athletic and extra-curricular program for our children. 


            For community members who visit this site we hope you use it to keep up-to-date on school events.  We will post board agendas and minutes, athletic schedules, news about our schools, and links for you to use.  We are always anxious to know how to make the site more functional for you, please let us know if you have any ideas.


            Once again we have decided not to charge school fees this year.  Given the financial stresses many families are feeling, we think we can help out in this way.  Additionally, we have decided that all students can come to athletic events free of charge! Of course this will mean that principals will have to stretch their school budgets--if you would like to help in any way please feel free to contact one of our schools.  We also will continue to provide free breakfast and free lunch to all students.


            We welcome your comments and ideas as we pursue these agendas.  And we hope you become involved with our work to have small schools that help every child to a big future.
