Tiffin City Board of Education members heard about an Ohio school board's effort to contact the governor regarding school funding.
President Kathy Venema said the board had received a copy of a letter from a board member in Westerville City School District. The school had a challenging time passing levies and passed one in March, when Tiffin City Schools passed one, she said.
The Westerville board members are asking other board members to visit a website to support a letter about school funding to be given to the governor. It is up to each board member whether to sign it, Venema said.
In other business, the board heard from Paula Zirm, supervisor of gifted and talented education, and Jennifer Musgrave, English teacher, about Advanced Placement English and Springboard programs.
Zirm said 22 students are enrolled in at least one AP course at Columbian High School. Some are in two or three courses, and one student is in four, she said.
Students can earn college credit by taking a course, and the district will be adding more courses next year, she said.
