Board accepts anonymous donation to benefit technology

BYESVILLE, Ohio -- Meeting in regular session Thursday evening, the Rolling Hills Board of Education gratefully accepted an anonymous donation of $105,744. The funds are earmarked to benefit technology advancements in the district. This is one of several large anonymous donations over the years. "We cannot express our appreciation for this gift" said Superintendent Ryan Caldwell. He adds that "this type of support is just another example of all the good things going on in the Rolling Hills School District."

It was reported that the 2014-15 school year is off to a "great start." Superintendent Caldwell reports very few problems around the district as classes have gotten underway. School officials thanked those in the custodial, technology and maintenance staffs for their hard work over the summer preparing the buildings.

As is typical this time of the year, Thursday night's agenda was filled with numerous personnel items. A lengthy list of classified and certified personnel items were approved by the board. The lists include tutors, volunteers, gate workers and others. Also approved was the resignation of Logan Pepper, effective at the end of the 2013-14 school year. Approval also was given to sharing a Resource Officer at 1/2 the cost, with Mid-East Career and Technology Center at a cost of just over $24,000.

The board also approved an agreement between the district, the Ohio Appalachian Collaborative School District and Ohio University to further the dual enrollment program. Superintendent Ryan Caldwell pointed out that MHS juniors and seniors can now achieve over 75 college credit hours and never leave the confines of the high school. He points out that two years ago, no such program existed at MHS.

Prior to their adjournment, Board Vice President Bryan Stoney presented to Superintendent Ryan Caldwell with the anniversary edition of the Meadowbrook Colts football helmet. The new helmet is the one the Colts will wear into battle this season.
