The Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Board of Education recognized an educator Tuesday.
Sharon Maurice was nominated by ACTE, a national organization, as a teacher of the year. She traveled to Atlanta, Georgia for the national convention and was recognized as a national teacher of the year.
A shelter structure over the fallout shelter on the campus collapsed under the weight of snow recently. The structure has been looked at by an insurance adjuster and will be replaced. The structure was built a couple years ago after it was noticed the concrete on the fallout shelter was deteriorating.
The career center and Clark State Community College are in the middle of ongoing discussions about leasing the center's buildings and facilities. The career center currently has some programs that are offered through Clark State.
Also during the regular January meeting, Austin Glasgow and Audrey Foster were recognized as January students of the month. Glasgow is an Electricity II student from Riverside and Foster is an Animal Management II student from Mechanicsburg.
During its annual organizational meeting, the board voted to become the district's designated expulsion hearing officer. Previously the job was contracted out. The board wanted to show that it cares about the district's students and wanted to hear the student's side of the story in an expulsion case.
In other organizational meeting business, Anne Reames was re-elected board president, Bill Ramsey was re-elected as vice president, Warren Stevens was re-appointed legislative liaison, and new board member Nancy Osborn was sworn-in to represent Upper Scioto Valley.
Superintendent Jeff Price discusses the meeting's topics.
The Ohio Hi-Point Board of Education will meet again on February 27th at 7 pm.
