Amherst Board of Education Passes Resolution

In response to a countywide survey, the Amherst Board of Education passed a resolution to return local control to our public schools. After many years of unfunded federal and state mandates, declining state revenue, and an increase in for-profit and charter schools, the Amherst Board of Education urges Ohio legislators to allow our community to review and discuss changes in education policy before they become mandates.

The survey showed that residents support local public schools and do not believe that state testing has helped improve student or teacher performance. Further, the research shows that residents do not support tax dollars intended for public schools being used for profit, online and other charter schools. Education is our community’s and our state’s future and it is imperative that policies reflect the input of educators and families. Click on the link to see the Board's resolution.  

Senior fees must be paid in order to receive your cap/gown and/or diploma.  Senior fees/debts are due by May 16, 2014. Please see Mrs. Schultz to see if you owe or to pay your fees.  Or call Mrs. Schultz at 440-988-1061.
