Gov. John Kasich’s education funding proposal was the topic of conversation at Ohio Hi-Point’s board of education meeting Wednesday evening.
Treasurer Eric Adelsberger commented on the funding model being based on a mathematical system.
“Although this is not perfectly suited for career-technical schools, the funding model does allow the district to look at student enrollment and determine how student numbers will impact state funding.
“This allows the district to plan programs and know exactly what the state return is for future investments,” he continued.
Officials from the Logan County Solid Waste Management District presented a check to Ohio Hi-Point for the district’s recycling efforts. Through the County’s Recycle Reward incentive program, the district earned $1,399, equal to $10 for every ton of recycled material, as noted earlier in the Examiner.
The board accepted the June retirement resignation of Special Education Coordinator Pamela Clark, who served the district for 29 years.
The Architectural and Mechanical Design program is relocating from OHP’s main campus to Marysville High School next year, serving grades 9-12, and a second Science of Flight class will be added to Graham High school.
In other matters, the board authorized, accepted or approved:
• the donation of two propane tank vaporizer units to Riverside Local Schools;
• the resignation of Shelby Brammell, Kenton Agriculture Education instructor, for personal reasons;
• employment of Kelly Perry as an Adult Education Career Development instructor;
• a transfer of several grant assets from Union County to the ABLE program, as well as a transfer of the assets to Clark State Community College as the program concludes the transition to Clark State in July 2013;
• service renewal agreement with Impact Network Solutions, Inc.; and
• district policies.
The next meeting is at 7 p.m. March 27.
