The Ashland City School District has applied for a state grant to fund a proposed Community Career Institute. Supt. Dr. Doug Marrah talked about the proposed project at Monday night's board meeting. Marrah said the $4 million grant would fund on-the-job training for students, and training for teachers involved with the program. The former King Lanes building would be renovated to become the career institute. The institute would be a collaboration with Mapleton Local Schools, Ashland County Community Academy, Hedstrom Plastics and the Transformation Network. The district will know if they get the money in December. In other business, the board o swore in new member Lindsey Saffle. Saffle was appointed last week and will fill the unexpired term of former board member Bob Hill. The board also approved Jim Wolfe as the new board vice president to replace Hill. The board also approved the district's five-year financial forecast.
