This afternoon the Ohio Department of Education, City of Lorain, and Lorain Schools Board of Education released their picks for the new Lorain Academic Distress Commission. Their press release is shared below.
On behalf of the Lorain City Schools, we are incredibly pleased to be moving forward, especially with such high caliber individuals. I’m optimistic that this process will be governed by a commission that represents not only academic excellence, but some who are graduates of our school system and deeply knowledgeable of our district. One of the main themes we’ve heard from our community is that a local perspective will be key to their continued engagement and support. Our hope is that today’s announcement will give our community the confidence that the state, city and district are working together on behalf of our students and families.
An Open Door Session will be held next Wednesday, April 12th at the LCCC City Center from 5:00-6:30pm. If you have questions, concerns, or want more information on progress and next steps, I hope you'll join us. In the meantime, enjoy your day, and we'll be in touch.
