At Tuesday's coronavirus press conference Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called out several school districts including Columbus City Schools, that aren't on track to have all students back in school at least part time by March 1rst.  At Tuesday evening's school board meeting officials say there's solid and systemic reasons why that won't happen.  Alison Holm has more.   

Columbus Mayor Andy Ginther today announced the city will use federal CARES Act funding to ensure that every Columbus City Schools student has a Chromebook for virtual learning.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine is scheduled to release state guidelines on education on Thursday, but districts around the state have been exploring options for the next school year for weeks if not months.

Columbus City Schools announced Tuesday they will form a working group by the end of the month to discuss safety and security in the district – including possibly ending their decades-long contract with the Columbus Division of Police.

Ohio Governor Mike Dewine says he fully intends to see schools in the state reopen this fall, but the responsibility for what that looks like is up to individual districts.

Members of the Columbus Education Association voted "overwhelmingly" Sunday to accept a contract offer from the Columbus City Schools, with pay increases, the promise of smaller class sizes, and better disciplinary programs for troubled students.

For the first time in several years, the Columbus City Schools district is preparing for the new year with an-all staff convocation this morning, a pep rally to share a vision of the year ahead.
