The Ravenna Public Schools Board of Education believes "The education of our youth is the foundation upon which the future of our community, our state and our country depends.

Simply stated, we want Ravenna students to be 'One Step Ahead.' "

Beechnau Elementary (BCH) and Ravenna Middle School (RMS) utilize several web-based software applications and services(External Link SaaS), operated not by RPS, but by third parties. These may include Evernote, Edmodo and similar educational programs.

In order for our students to use these programs and services, certain personal identifying information, generally the student's name and email address, must be provided to the web site operator. Under federal law, these websites must provide parental notification and obtain parental consent before collecting personal information from children under the age of 13.

A list of the possible sites to be used in our classrooms, with links to their privacy policies and terms of services is to the right.
