North High School Certified as a WILD School Site

The WILD School Site program was established by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife in 1994 to encourage schools to take action in order to improve their school yard habitat for wildlife while using the site to learn lessons in the many subjects of their curriculum.

The new report card will be phased in over several years and will contain grades for 6 different components:
