The Centerville Board of Education held its regular meeting on Jan. 25 at Centerville High School.
A highlight of the meeting was the recognition of classroom grant recipients. The Centerville Education Foundation awarded 11 grants, totaling more than $9,000, to teachers and educational coaches to use for classroom and district-wide projects in the coming months.
January is School Board Recognition Month, and Superintendent Dr. Tom Henderson took a few minutes to thank the five Board of Education members – John Doll, Allison Durnbaugh, Dr. David Roer, Jeff Shroyer and Megan Sparks – for serving our community.
Tammy Drerup, the district’s Director of Student Services, presented on special education programs in the district. Community members who are aware of a student with special needs who is not receiving services should contact the district’s Student Services Department at (937) 433-8841.
Other reports included a legislative report by board member Megan Sparks, an update from Dr. Henderson about the return to in-person learning, and the monthly financial report by Treasurer Laura Sauber.
The Centerville Board of Education is made up of five elected resident citizens and is the governing body of the school district. Each board member is elected for a four-year term that begins on Jan. 1 after their election and expires on Dec. 31, except as otherwise provided by law.
