Columbus City Schools
Students at Westland High School will begin a week of activities Monday, Sept. 28, leading up to the homecoming football game Friday, Oct. 2, against Hilliard Davidson.
Columbus’ Centennial High School was under Level 2 lockdown for about an hour this morning because of the “rumor of a threat,” said a Columbus City Schools spokesman. The lockdown ended about 9:30 a.m.
The ninth annual Whetstone High School homecoming parade will begin at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25, before the Whetstone High School vs. East High School. football game.
The Columbus school district promised energy, and it delivered today, from Superintendent Dan Good dancing a spontaneous version of the Whip and the Nae Nae in front of a couple thousand cheering seniors, to a video message from NBA star Jared Sullinger describing how his dad benched him for poor grades when he played for Northland High. The district’s “All Seniors In” gathering was designed to get them thinking about college, a technical career or the military.
It is far from decided whether Columbus City Schools will put a bond issue on the November 2016 ballot to continue the district’s state-subsidized school-rebuilding program, but the tea leaves are getting more interesting by the week.
After 14 years at the helm of Centennial High School, Principal Fran Hershey opted to quietly step down at the conclusion of the last school year, paving the way for her assistant of the past four years to take her place.
Columbus City Schools will form a committee to review school-attendance boundaries and the need for new facilities and additional programs, district officials announced at the Board of Education meeting on Tuesday night. If new construction is part of the final recommendations, that probably means a bond-levy question will be put before district voters, although the timing is unclear.
