COMING UP THIS WEEK
Monday: An Ohio House committee spends its evening hearing more about school finance at the Warren County Educational Service Center. The fun starts at 6 p.m. and focuses on technology and shared services. (They’re working towards developing a new way to fund Ohio schools.)
Monday: The Ohio Board of Regents considers asking state schools to ban smoking on campus. Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee says he doesn’t mind the idea but it’s “not at the top of my priority list.”
Wednesday: The annual meeting for the American Legislative Exchange Commission (ALEC) begins in Salt Lake City. ALEC’s education task force’s mission is “to ensure America’s youth are given the opportunity to succeed.”
Wednesday: Students report for their first day of school at Columbus’ year-round schools. First day of class for all other Columbus students is Aug. 22.
WHAT WE’RE WORKING ON
- Among other things, we’re looking at what happens to students when charter schools change management and at what happens to colleges when federal funding streams change course.
