Superintendent Jeff Price discussed the future of adult education at Ohio Hi-Point. He says there is a need to reinvent adult education programs. One way Ohio Hi-Point is doing this is by partnering with Clark State Community College.
Price says another way to do this is to focus on teaching a specific skill set that will cater to the Logan, Champaign and Hardin County areas.

This year will bring a four percent increase in school lunches in Ohio Hi-Point’s cafeteria. The increase comes as a result of increasing food and produce prices nationwide. The price of a lunch will increase ten cents from $2.50 to $2.60.
Resignations for Sharon J. Halter, of DeGraff, and Sheryl L. Risner, of Bellefontaine, were approved effective June 30. Both Halter and Risner were part of Hi-Point’s Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE) program. They are leaving to serve under Clark State’s ABLE program.
Along with resignations, this academic year’s handbook and academic fees were approved by the Board.
