What's In a Name?

Frank Jacinto Elementary’s namesake was a distinguished Lorain educator and often called the grandfather of the Hispanic Community in Lorain.    Jacinto was born in Lorain on April 10, 1933. He was employed at U.S. Steel for a year, then joined the U.S. Navy, serving for four years, rising to the rank of radarman second class. He earned a bachelor's degree at Ohio State University and master's degree from Kent State University.  He was Ohio's first Hispanic principal when he was appointed principal of Lincoln Elementary School.  He retired from Lorain City Schools in 1984.  In addition to his work in education Jacinto was tireless community organizer and advocate.   He was an officer in Mexican-American Citizens Club and the Mexican Mutual Society and a founding member of El Centro, the Hispanic Fund and the Coalition for the Hispanic/Latino Issues & Progress (CHIP). He was author of, "The Mexican Community in Lorain, Ohio" and the author, photographer and editor of both the souvenir booklet of the Mexican International Spotlight Committee and thea contributer to the book "Hispanic Community in Lorain."  In addition to many other volunteer roles in local community service organizations he was a W.G. Nord Community Mental Health Center board member for 16 years.  His passing on February 22, 2002, marked the end of nearly seven decades of service.  He inspired and encouraged everyone who came to know him and is remembered not only for his dedication and accomplishments in the community but also for his focus on the education of all of Lorain’s children.

Frank Jacinto Elementary Community Engagement Session

As the Lorain City School District continues to provide support to buildings, in its pursuit of creating a system of excellent schools, it is looking for feedback from parents, staff and community members.

During the month of November, a series of community engagement sessions will be held at specific schools that have been determined to be in need of immediate attention.

Based on data collected by the district from the 2018-19 state report cards, the Excellent Schools Dashboard and data comparison analysis from Achievement Network (ANet), sessions will be held to garner input from General Johnnie Wilson Middle, Palm Elementary and Frank Jacinto Elementary School parents, staff and community members.

During these sessions, attendees will be given an opportunity to provide valuable input that will help steer each of these three buildings forward through positive practices.

Attendees will have the chance to look over the same data reviewed, by the district, during its naming of these specific schools as ones that require immediate attention. Observations and concerns will then be shared and documented, through a series of topic-specific breakout sessions, that same evening.

This process will create viable solutions for each building, and be presented publicly during the mid-year State of the District, on Jan. 9, along with the tiering of buildings, based on their ranking within the system of excellent schools.

All community engagement sessions will be held from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m., at their respective buildings.

Dates for the sessions are as follows:

General Johnnie Wilson Middle School-Wednesday, November 20th

Palm Elementary School-Monday, November 25th

Frank Jacinto Elementary School-Tuesday, November 26th
