JAMESTOWN — Like many superintendents across Ohio, Greeneview’s Isaac Seevers isn’t overly concerned with the district’s report card. Released by the state Sept. 14, Greeneview received one A, three Ds and two Cs in on the six-component report card. Last year the district received two Fs. The six components are Achievement, Progress, Gap Closing, Graduation Rate, K-3 Literacy and Prepared for Success.
CEDARVILLE — Comparing it to a game of table tennis, Cedar Cliff Local Schools Superintendent Chad Mason had some stern words for state educators regarding proficiency testing after the release of report cards Sept. 14. “I choose to look at the results, good or bad, put them aside and go work with students, teachers, and principals — that is a far better use of my time,” he said.
XENIA — Xenia Community Schools has entered into a consulting contract with Rockmill Financial Consultants. The board approved the contract during it’s Sept. 11 meeting, but it made two somewhat major modifications that required them sending the amended contract to Rockmill President David Conley for final approval, which was received Wednesday. The original contract called for an up-front $39,500 annual retainer, but the school board changed that an annual fee.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
