About Being a Good Citizen
Late last week, I spoke with Don Mook. Don is superintendent of the Columbiana Exempted Village Schools in northeastern Ohio. As you might expect, our conversation centered on the coronavirus pandemic. When I asked him what he sees as the primary role of his school system during this crisis, he responded that “it is about being a good citizen.” In addition to educating students and providing meals to many of them while they are out of school, he said that his teachers, administrators and non-teaching staff are currently discussing how they can reach out to the community and help school district residents cope with the local impact of this pandemic.
