The Ohio Hi-Point school board recognized the November Students of the Month during its Nov. 18 meeting.
The board recognized Mykaila Daniels, an Animal Management senior from Urbana High School, and Adrian (AJ) Sorgen, an Outdoor Careers senior from Kenton High School, as the November Students of the Month.
The board approved courses of study for middle school Family and Consumer Sciences, Agriculture and Career Exploration. Ohio Hi-Point began offering satellite programs in middle schools this year and plans to continue partnerships with school districts in the upcoming years.
Ohio Hi-Point Treasurer Eric Adelsberger updated the board on the recent state funding for career technical education. Adelsberger said receiving funds from the state has been slow due to the changes in reporting student numbers from once a year to a rolling year. The Ohio Department of Education has a goal for this school year’s funding to be delivered in February. The importance of aligning district reporting to state reporting and funding helps Ohio Hi-Point prepare five-year forecasts and budgets for future school years.
In other action, the board:
•Approved the report of the treasurer, including the October 2015 Financial Statement; interest and investments; and appropriation modifications, transfers and advances.
•Approved the out-of-state professional development attendance of Rodney Peterson, Automotive Academy instructor, to attend the Performance Racing Industry Trade Show in Indianapolis, Indiana, in December
•Approved the school compensation agreement with the City of Marysville.
The next Board of Education meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 16.
