The current configuration of grade levels in the three school buildings of the Benton-Carroll-Salem district will remain in place for the 2013-14 school year, the board of education has decided.
Board members last week agreed to keep kindergarten through the third grade classes at R.C. Waters Elementary School; grades four through seven at Oak Harbor Middle School, and grades eight through 12 at the high school.
Superintendent Guy Parmigian recommended the configuration stay the same, saying students, families, and staff members would benefit from the stability.
Voting request considered
The Woodmore school board is considering a request to use school buildings in Sandusky County for voting starting with the 2014 primary election.
Board members will hold their organizational meeting Jan. 8, 2013 at 5 p.m. in the high school library. The board’s regular meeting will follow.
Trustees to meet
The Lake Township trustees will hold their year-end meeting Dec. 27 at 5:30 p.m.
Tammy Tapley, transportation and student activities director at Lake Local Schools, thanked the Lake Township Police Department for their presence at the school campus on Dec. 17 – the first day of school after the tragedy in Newton, Connecticut.
“I have to admit it was difficult to come to school this morning without the thought of ‘what if?’” she said in an email to Police Chief Mark Hummer and Sgt. David Goodenough. “I was immediately settled to pull in just after 6 a.m. and see cruisers on campus. I also noticed them driving by my office at different times today. I’m sure I’m not the only person who noticed them and was thankful for their presence.”
