OSBA LEGISLATIVE LIAISON: There is continuing discussion related to changes to vocational school board governance and membership.
SUPERINTENDENT: Most of the schools are back in session and enrollment numbers are being reviewed.

The administrative team is in the processing of scheduling fall districts visits to gain feedback on our services.
CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER: Details are being finalized on the NwOESC’s administration of new 21st Century Grant districts (Bryan, Napoleon, and Patrick Henry). On-line requisition processing will be initiated with all 21st Century Programs – existing and new. The bank account change is in process.
DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EDUCATION: The school year has gotten off to a great start. Classrooms are up and running. All preschool staff recently received training on High Scope Curriculum. Several speech therapists and special education supervisors are looking into fall professional development opportunities.
DIRECTOR OF CURRICULUM, PLANNING, AND INSTRUCTION: The Educational Consultants have been working closely with their districts on a variety of tasks and activities – opening day, local report cards and data, planning and facilitating professional development, and implementation of OTES and Student Growth Measures. The ESC is facilitating several Student Learning Objective Trainings. Battelle for Kids will be using our facility to roll out a multitude of literacy trainings. There is continued collaboration with ODE on RttT initiatives and updates. The LPDC committee is in place and meetings have been set for the year.
•As all of the business of the evening was complete, meeting adjourned at 8:55 pm. The next regular meeting will be held Tuesday, September 24, at 7:00 pm at the NwOESC office located at 205 Nolan Parkway, Archbold, OH.
