Clark County Commissioners have agreed to hire two Clark County deputies to provide extra security for county schools. The plan is part of an ongoing effort to make schools safer without having to arm teachers.
The NRA's national effort to arm teachers in public and private schools after the tragic Newtown, Connecticut shootings received support from Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, who supported police academy firearms training for school administrators, staff and teachers.
Springfield's Global Stem Impact Academy is moving forward with plans to open this fall. The academy has found a new location and permanent director.
The Academy's plan to open this fall in the old South High School site was derailed in January when the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission released a report questioning the viability of the school that was proposed by Sen. Chris Widener. Widener says the academy will be the first regional science, technology, engineering and math school in the state focused on the agricultural-bioscience and food service industries.
