Eastwood combining positions
The Eastwood school board has decided to combine administrative positions at the elementary school level.
Starting in July, Dr. Margy Brennan-Krueger will hold the dual role of principal at Luckey Elementary School as well as School Improvement Specialist.
For the last five years she has served as the full-time improvement specialist in the district, having been hired through the Wood County Educational Service Center.
Brent Welker, district superintendent, said her primary responsibility has been to keep the district current on the changes in federal and state standards and assessments.

State Representative Chris Redfern has scheduled office hours in Ottawa County for May 13 from 2-3 p.m. in the Oak Harbor Public Library lower level meeting room, located at 147 West Main Street in Oak Harbor.
The public is invited to attend.
The Norfolk Southern rail company has contacted the Ottawa County Engineer’s office to schedule road closings while the company works on crossings on Toussaint Portage Road, between State Route 163 and Salem-Carroll Road, and on Benton Carroll Road, between Schiller and Kolb roads.
Construction is scheduled to start May 13 and end May 24. The roads will be closed to bus, local, and emergency traffic.
Changes to the schedule will be posted on the county engineer’s website as they become available.

The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board declared the week of May 6 as Teacher Appreciation Week.
“Every day is a day to thank a teacher! However, this is a special time of the year as our Board of Education has resolved to name this week as Teacher Appreciation Week. I wish to thank you personally, and on behalf of the Benton-Carroll-Salem Board of Education, for the sense of dedicated service, inspiration, rigorous/relevant instruction, caring, mentoring, and wisdom you provide to all of our students each and every day. I thank you for the effort you put into both the art and science of teaching as you work to develop meaningful and nurturing relationships with students, which is critical to effective instruction,” wrote Superintendent Guy Parmigian in an email to teachers.
