Board votes on agreement between FC Cincinnati and school district
District implements new procedures to increase safety

Other than the two articles linked above, the only other highlight item is the 2019-2020 school year calendar. The calendar is presented to the board and the public for two months before the final vote. This gives plenty of time for comments and questions. The board held a public hearing on the 2019-2020 school calendar at the August meeting.
