Written by David Schaef

Conneaut School District leaders are hosting three town hall meetings beginning tonight, Monday, April 11, at Conneaut Valley Middle School with a second meeting set for Monday, April 18, at Conneaut Lake Middle School and a final meeting set for Monday, April 25, at Conneaut Area Senior High School. Meetings are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and last until 9 p.m.

The public meetings are an effort to share information with school district taxpayers and residents about the district with four main topics to be covered - budget, charter school concerns, Worldwide Interactive Network [WIN], and curriculum.

WIN is a career exploration program that students are being required to complete to better help students as they plan their futures whether it is to attend college, enter the work force or take technical training.

The step down budget idea was suggested by Conneaut Schools Superintendent Jarrin Sperry at the school board’s work session held Wednesday evening.
