FREDERICKTOWN — Fredericktown High School and Fredericktown Elementary School were formally recognized at Tuesday’s school board meeting for achieving an excellent designation on the 2009-10 local report card. In presenting the certificates of commendation, State Rep. Margaret Ann Ruhl said the 128th assembly recognizes the importance of good schools. She said the Fredericktown community should be proud the school system produces “qualified graduates ready to excel in our challenging society.”
Other successes were also highlighted at the meeting. High School Principal Robert Moore said, “This was a great fall to be a Fredericktown Freddie.” Moore listed the accomplishments of the football team and the cross country team, and said the band also received an excellent rating at a recent competition and qualified for the state contest.
Board member Charles Streby reported on the Ohio Schools Boards Association annual conference. He said one of the most interesting sessions he attended involved the use of mobile learning devices in the classroom.
In addition to the regular monthly financial report, Treasurer Pat Miller discussed the district’s health insurance plan. She said because the plan — OME-RESA — is through a consortium of several groups, the district saves money on benefits to employees. She reported 96 percent of every premium dollar paid into the program goes toward benefits to members.
