Superintendent Rally Set for November 15
On November 15, public school superintendents and other local educational leaders representing more than 70 Ohio counties will be gathering on the State Capital steps as a sign of their commitment to help close the gap between what many of Ohio’s citizens want and the statewide education policies that are currently in place. The event which is expected to draw nearly 200 people will take place at 10 a.m. on the West Plaza facing High Street. “As public school superintendents, we see every day how our current statewide education policies are impacting our staff, students and communities,” states Olmsted Falls City School District Superintendent Jim Lloyd, who helped organize the rally. “With the reality of these policies in clear view, we can serve as a lynchpin to bring our staff, our students, the citizens of our communities and our state policymakers together in a positive spirit of mutual trust, respect and cooperation to address everyone’s concerns.” In a recently conducted statewide survey, Ohio’s public school superintendents said they want to work with their local stakeholders and Ohio’s elected officials to fix a graduation and State reporting system that they feel is currently in great need of repair.
