Tour completed bond issue work with Superintendent Clint Keener

Bay Village voters approved $16.8 million in 2012 to refurbish, restore and upgrade our school buildings. We promised to do the work that would keep our schools in service for the next 20-25 years. We are happy to report that we have not only kept that promise, but that we have also taken that money further than anticipated. Superintendent Clint Keener covers the work, and interviews Dave Newsome (maintenance), Jason Martin (principal, Bay High),

Josie Caputo (principal, Westerly) and Matt Spellman (Athletics Director) about how the investments benefit students and community.

Superintendent Clint Keener interviews Dr. Robert Piccirilli (center) and Bill Selong (right) as they retire from the Bay Village Board of Education.

Bill Selong is retiring from the Bay Village Board of Education after serving for 16 years, and Dr. Robert Piccirilli retires after four years. Both gentlemen discuss their proudest accomplishments, their past challenges, and advice for future board members in this interview with Superintendent Clint Keener.

Peer models in special needs classes enjoy benefits, learn empathy and leadership skills

Children age 3 by June of 2016 and potty-trained can be considered for the typical peer program in S.E.E.D. (Special Early Education Development) at Glenview Center for Child Care and Learning.

This unique preschool experience is taught by certificated teachers and combines students having special needs with their typically-developing peers. Children are screened in the areas of speech/language, motor skills, social skills/behavior and cognitive/pre-academic skills. A parent questionnaire also contributes to the screening process.

Classes are Monday through Thursday,  9-11:30 a.m. or 12:15-2:45 p.m. The cost is currently $550 for the school year; any increase in next year’s rates will be announced in the spring.
