New Philadelphia City Schools is one of the award recipients of Ohio Governor Mike DeWine's K-12 School Safety Grant Program. More than 2,000 schools applied for this competitive grant.  All seven of New Philadelphia’s buildings were included among the list of 708 buildings that received grant awards.


New Philadelphia City Schools will receive $317,000 to upgrade the safety and security within their buildings. The district chose their intended projects from a state-wide approved list of safety enhancements.


As part of the grant award, each building will have multiple additional security cameras installed and each building will have additional exterior signage on windows and doors to help first responders in the event of an emergency situation. A significant portion of the grant money will be used to place telephones in all classrooms in the district. These phones will be able to be utilized for regular communication with families and also in the case of an emergency. Only one building currently has this capability.


In addition, Halo Smart Sensors will be purchased and placed in both New Philadelphia High School and Joseph Welty Middle School. The sensors will be capable of vape, smoke, and THC (marijuana) detection and will also alert the office when loud sounds occur, including gunshots and fighting. The district plans to purchase walkie-talkies, as needed, to aid in communication

for the elementary schools. Some of the grant money will also go toward necessary door and key upgrades in the high school, middle school, and in three of the elementary schools.


Superintendent Amy Wentworth states, “We are grateful to have been awarded this grant for each of our eligible buildings. These funds will enable the district to make some essential safety improvements to our buildings that would have otherwise been cost prohibitive, and as a result, our entire community will benefit.”


While the money is expected to be received in the beginning of the new calendar year, projects aren’t expected to begin until spring 2023 with the goal of most upgrades to be fully implemented for the 2023-2024 school year.

New Philadelphia High School proudly presents its fall play, Radium Girls!  This historical drama written by D.W. Gregory is inspired by a true story and the heroism of the girls of the U.S. Radium Corporation.

Her chief nemesis is her former employer, Arthur Roeder, who cannot bring himself to believe that the same element that is shrinking tumors could have anything to do with the terrifying rash of illnesses among his employees. As the case goes on, Grace finds herself battling not just with the U.S. Radium Corporation, but with her own family and friends, who fear that her campaign for justice will backfire.
The cast includes Kate Scott (Grace Fryer), Grace Maddux (Kathryn Schaub), Brad Waugh (Arthur Roeder), Nathaniel Demuth (Edward Markley), and Derek Shimek (Charlie Lee).  Also in the cast are Makenna Armstrong, Ava Bloom, Bobbie Brown, Heather Demuth, Garin Gingerich, Scarling Hershberger-Budavich, Bella Kaput, Jordi Kopp-Baldich, Jenny Kugler, Miranda Lumley, Anna Meek, Luc Poirier, Abigail Prucha, Sydney Purcell, Colton Walker, and Caoilainn Winters.

Quaker Community,

As a school district deemed with educating and protecting the children of New Philadelphia City Schools we take that responsibility extremely seriously. We hope that you will trust in our teachers and administration as we continue to provide the highest quality of both education and safety. In keeping with that trust, we will hope that you will trust us when we tell you that there is not a current threat to Welty or New Philadelphia High School.

We were informed this morning of a post that alluded to a threat. Our administration instantly came together, law enforcement was called and we did our due diligence to make sure our school buildings were safe. The heightened presence of our local police department was strictly for added precaution, not because there is or was an incident. We implore you to once again, trust that all staff and students are safe at Welty and New Philadelphia High School and that there have been no incidences of danger at any point during this school day. The messages that went out this morning were meant to provide solace as we would rather our parents know of our precautions rather than hear about them through second-hand sources.

Thank you and have a wonderful day.
