OTTOVILLE — Superintendent Scott Mangas will gather information on the cost of resurfacing the Ottoville Local School track after school board members approved the action Wednesday evening during a short meeting.
Mangas said he hopes to have the project ready to put out to bid in October with the work being done in June 2013.
The board also approved donations from the Van Wert Co-Ag Society, $500, band performance; Fort Jennings, $250, band performance; Ottoville Music Boosters, $239.60, flags; US Green Fiber, $63.90, recycling; and OTEC, $91.92, capital credits.
Classes will be delayed two hours on Friday to allow teachers additional training on their iPads. All freshmen have iPads and will use them throughout their high school career and take them after graduation.
Mangas announced on Sept. 24, 26 and 28, elementary teachers will meet with state instructors and map the academic year using the new core standards. Substitute teachers will fill in where necessary; and Sept. 26-27 is Grandparents Day at the elementary.
High School Principal Jon Thorbahn reported the iPad initiative is going well and the teachers have come with a lot of interesting things they can use the iPad in conjunction with and to compliment classroom instruction.
Shelley Mumaw announced the after school program will begin Oct. 9. The program served 80 students last year.
In other business, the board:
• Approved the list of substitute workers for the 2012-2013 school year;
• Accepted the rate of $60 per day for students at the Wood County Juvenile Detention Center and $50 per student per day for students in long-term care at the Juvenile Residential Center of Northwest Ohio;
• Approved the revised School Safety Plan; and
• Approved Traci Miller to drive the pre-school bus route for the remainder of the 2012-13 school year (161 days).
