Revere schools looking for volunteer speakers for Future’s Day

BATH — Revere High School (RHS) is accepting registrations for potential volunteer speakers for its fifth annual Fall Future’s Day Program to be held Oct. 16.

All 10th- and 11th-grade students will be registering for the event at the beginning of the school year, and each student will have the opportunity to select their top three job categories of interest, according to school district officials. Speakers will be chosen based on students’ interests and notified if they have or have not been selected, according to school district officials.

Speakers selected for the event will need to prepare for up to three 45-minute sessions. Each speaker will be assigned to an RHS host teacher they will meet with on the day of the event during a catered lunch in the Auxiliary Gymnasium. The host teachers will assist the speakers with getting to their designated locations and will stay to help during the presentations, according to school district officials.

The welcome and catered lunch will begin at 11:30 a.m. in the Auxiliary Gymnasium at RHS, and the first presentations will begin at 12:15 p.m. The last presentations will end by 2:37 p.m.

For more information, contact Brenda Moll, secretary to the assistant superintendent, at bmoll@revereschools.org.

A link to register is available within the call-to-volunteers announcement at www.revere.k12.oh.us.

 

Norton BOE hires tech group for one year

NORTON — The Norton City Schools Board of Education met for a special meeting June 27 and voted to approve a one-year contract with a technology group.

Akron-based Epiphany Management Group was hired at a cost of $61,000 to provide assistance in setting up and installing new technology and upgrading the district’s wireless capabilities, according to district Treasurer Stephanie Hagenbush.

The board decided to retain the company in lieu of hiring an employee to replace Network Manager Susan Henry, who has retired.

Hagenbush said the board also wrapped up its finances for the year and approved new appropriation revisions for the end of the year and temporary ones for next year. The board also approved transferring funds to cover expenses in accounts for which federal funds have not yet been received.

The next Committee-of-the-Whole meeting is scheduled for July 8 at 6 p.m. at the Administration Building, 4128 S. Cleveland-Massillon Road, and the next regular school board meeting is set for July 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Norton High School Media Center, 4108 S. Cleveland-Massillon Road.
