  • Have your voice heard! Call on Ohio’s leaders to step up and enact common sense reform for the benefit of Ohio’s public school children.In 2016, the federal government passed a new law to replace the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). The new law, The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), is designed to provide new flexibility to states. The new law is structured such that learning and testing decisions are returned to the states and even local districts. Each state must submit a plan to the US Dept. of Ed. The Ohio Dept. of Education (ODE) had many meetings across the state to hear from people about how the new state plan should look. I attended our regional meeting. Participants urged ...

  • Develop Your Personal Brand Social media is everywhere! Many people view social media in a negative manner. But how you use it makes a big impact on how you are perceived by others. Scott Grant, President & Chief Impact Officer of Triple Threat Leadership, gave a great presentation on using social media to develop your personal brand. If you use social media in a negative and emotional manner, then others will believe that is who you are. If you use social media in a positive manner to promote your interests and to develop professional contacts, then you will be perceived positively. He says to ask yourself, "What impression am I making?"Because of some online issues, Scott had to change the link to his presentation ...

  • Wind Chill Winter has returned! When it is cold, how do I decide if it is cold enough to delay? I rely on a wind chill chart put together by NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association) and NWS (National Weather Service). This chart lets me know when the combination of air temperature and wind speed creates a wind chill that could cause frostbite. As you can see on the chart, I start to worry about wind chills around the -20 degree mark. It is always a tough decision that we take very seriously.

  • American Education Week - Nov. 13-19, 2016     November 13-19 is American Education Week with the theme: Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility. An educated population is the foundation for our nation which depends on the decisions of its educated, informed citizens. Public schools are the only schools that must serve and meet the needs of ALL students. When you attend a public school, you get to know people from every corner of your community - you are part of the "public". Every child in the community has an opportunity to obtain an education. While too many children remain limited in their ability to take full advantage of that opportunity due to circumstances at home, it is important to me that those opportunities remain available ...

  • National School Bus Safety Week, Oct. 17-21 Did you know - * The school bus is the safest form of student transportation. Students on a school bus are 12 to 25 times safer than when riding in a passenger car. * School transportation is cost-effective. Transporting a child on a school bus costs a fraction of the cost of transporting a student by car.* Ohio's school transportation operation is highly regulated. It is overseen by local administrators and the state departments of education and public safety and covered by an exhaustive set of state rules and regulations.* Ohio school bus drivers must meet strict standards related to driving records; criminal background checks; drug and alcohol testing; physicals; driving and student management skills; and ongoing in-service training.Here ...
