OTTOVILLE — Ottoville and Fort Jennings Local Schools will share an industrial arts instructor this year. Ottoville Board of Education members on Monday modified a limited contract with Jim Hoersten to teach one high school industrial arts class in its neighboring district. Jennings agreed to reimburse Ottoville for all additional costs associated with modifying Hoersten’s contract at 20 percent. Superintendent Scott Mangas said the arrangements should serve both districts well.
High School Principal Jon Thorbahn reported the parent meeting concerning the district’s iPad Initiative went well and answered many questions. He added that the parents seemed comfortable with their freshman students having the iPads in their possession, being responsible for their care and using them properly.
