Welcome to the Ravenna School District


District to Install Security Cameras at Brown Middle School

Brown Middle School will soon have 80 security cameras installed in strategic areas of the building in an effort to increase student safety.  The cameras will be linked directly to the Ravenna Police Department in the same way that the 100 cameras at Ravenna High School are set up.  This purchase was made possible in large part due to the permanent improvement levy that the community passed last year.  Ravenna Police will be able to pull them up and see in real time what is happening at the school, assess an emergency situation and then respond more effectively.

Ravenna Schools Brings Final Forms Online 

We are pleased to announce that the Ravenna School District is implementing an electronic form system called Final Forms.  This data management system will help our staff, students, and their families reduce the burden of yearly paperwork and record keeping for many of the forms that we normally send home for completion.  Final Forms is easy to use and should help you save time while helping the district improve the accuracy of our records.  Once we have recorded your information into the Final Forms system, you will only need to update and confirm your information once per year, or after any changes to the forms or your information.  For the future, you may also review and update your information anytime you need to do so!

For all of our families where we have your email address on file, you will soon receive an email from the Final Forms asking you to confirm your contact details and then update your 2017-2018 paperwork. After you have checked your records, you will be given the opportunity to electronically update the forms that we normally would send home from school.  For families where we do not have your information or if you did not receive an email from Final Forms by Aug 3, 2017, please complete the Final Forms registration found here.
