State BOE Capacity Committee to Host Consolidation Hearing
The State Board of Education Capacity Committee will conduct a hearing on the proposed consolidation between Berkshire Local School District and Newbury Local School District beginning at 5 p.m. Feb. 18 in Clark Commons on the Kent State University-Geauga Campus, 1411 Claridon-Troy Road, Burton.
The hearing is an opportunity for the residents of the two districts to share their thoughts about the Berkshire and Newbury school boards’ desire to consolidate.
The Capacity Committee, chaired by Tom Gunlock, vice president of the state board, will hear from representatives from both districts and open the floor to community members who would like to express their views on the proposed consolidation.
Outstanding Students
The East Geauga Kiwanis Club recently gave recognition to Burton Elementary School third-graders Joey Czekaj, Brayden Igoe and Jenna Revak for being outstanding students as chosen by their teachers.
They all received a certificate, a gift certificate and four elementary books from the club.
High Test Marks Achieved
At the February regular meeting of the Berkshire Board of Education, sophomore Michelle Sohm was recognized by social studies teacher Eric Higgs for her scores on the American Legion Americanism and Government test. The students who were recognized won district championships at their respective grade levels.
Michelle scored very well on all three levels: Post, County and District. Also scoring well was senior Cassandra Cameron.
The Ohio American Legion Americanism and Government Test is an opportunity for high school students to understand American government and history through this statewide test program.
