The Academic Services Department develops and establishes the academic goals and policies of Elyria City Schools. Its mission is to support students, teachers, staff and community with expert content knowledge, high technology, modern curricular materials and instructional best practices.
Our team has extensive training and ensures Elyria’s teachers and principals have professional opportunities to further hone their teaching and leadership skills through Elyria University, an in-house training program for staff to take courses and earn college credit at no cost.
Our commitment to students is reflected through extensive course offerings and value-added services. It’s our charge to instill a life-long love of learning in our students and a desire to be contributing members of the community.
