About Meigs Local School District


The Meigs Local School District encompasses approximately 200 square miles in the western part of Meigs County.  The district includes the villages of Middleport, Pomeroy, and Rutland.  With a total enrollment of 1800 students, the district houses two elementary schools, a middle school, and a comprehensive (academic and career & technical) high school. 

The district is committed to making the necessary improvements to achieve academic success for every child. Recently, all schools showed above average results in one or more areas of the School Improvement Diagnostic Review (SIDR) conducted by the Ohio Department of Education.  The district contains one of the unique comprehensive high schools in the State of Ohio in that it offers a complete academic and a complete career and technical offering under one roof.  The high school also offers the career and technical programs to the two other high schools in Meigs County. 

Meigs Local enjoys a unique relationship with the University of Rio Grande.  A branch campus is located on the campus of Meigs High School/Meigs Middle School.  This affords our students college level classes through the CCP+ program without students having to leave school and drive many miles to get to a college campus.

The district is the beneficiary of several grants:

  • The district received a grant which provides a free breakfast and lunch to all students in the district
  • The 21st Century Grant which provides after-school programs for students at all three buildings
  • The Elementary and Secondary School Counseling Grant (ESSC) which has provided the elementary with two counselors and two social workers

The 21st Century and the ESSC personnel work hand-in-hand to provide services to our students.

At the beginning of the 2014-15 school year Meigs Local began a three-year capital improvement plan.

  • Year one accomplished: interior LED lighting, new cafeteria tables and chairs, lockers, parking lot paving, track and field equipment, Marx radios and panic buzzers, student records to electronic format.
  • Year two accomplished: additional new cafeteria tables and chairs, lockers, exterior LED lighting, band concession stand/locker room, baseball backstop, dugouts and fencing, ticket booths, visitor bleachers at football stadium, AED upgrades, and three additional buses.
  • The 2016-2017 school year will wrap up the plan with the construction of a new multipurpose facility.
