Hirzel leaving Lake school board
Applications are available at the board office or can be printed from the district’s website.
The deadline is Jan. 30.
Board members plan to meet Jan. 31 to review them and intend to have the vacancy filled by the regular February meeting.
Superintendent Brent Welker said the administration has received the last of three proposals for installing cameras, buzzer systems, and monitors in all of the buildings.
He and the school board will also be developing protocols for visitors.
“I think it is safe to say changes are coming and parent access to classrooms will be greatly limited. We will ask parents to drop things off in the office, and either we will call students down or deliver items to the classroom,” he writes in his weekly newsletter.
The administration is also looking at retrofitting windows with a product that will keep the glass from shattering.
The report was highlighted in a recent story by Reuters.
Gov. Kasich's announcement comes after a 10-month study evaluating different options, including privatization, which was rejected.
While Ohio's consultant report noted that a 50-year lease of the turnpike could generate $3.3 billion - $4 billion, the state chose not to privatize as the analysis included toll increases above the rate of inflation for EZ-Pass users.
In the announced plan, OTC intends to limit toll increases to inflation for 10 years and then possibly increase rates by 10 percent every 10 years thereafter.
