Hello Mohawk Community,
The school board is the education watchdog for their community,
ensuring that students get the best education for the tax dollars spent. They are a governing body elected by the residents of the school
district, committed to insuring our students are prepared for their
future. I am very pleased to work for a Board of Education that
emphasizes student achievement, is committed to long term fiscal stability, and
analyzes data to look at progress toward meeting our goals.
The Mohawk Board of Education has established a strategic plan with four areas of emphasis.
1. Student Achievement and Instructional Excellence
Whether students are continuing their education in pursuit of a specific vocation, college intending, or moving into the work force, it is our primary mission to
prepare students for success.
2. Communication and Community Engagement
We inform our community of the great things happening at Mohawk. We seek community input when considering policy revisions. We communicate through multiple platforms including web, social media, automated alerts, and traditional print materials.
3. Fiscal Stewardship
We operate with complete financial transparency and are committed to good
stewardship of taxpayer dollars. We maintain and improve our facilities to improve efficient and effective operations now and in the future. We plan and save for inevitable and costly maintenance needs such as roof replacement and paving. We established a rainy day fund to insure financial stability. Finally, we operate with a balanced budget.
4. Safety and Security
We develop and revise district and building safety plans annually. We conduct and document all safety drills as mandated by Ohio Law. We have implemented technologies and protocols for dealing with an active shooter situation. We drill with area first responders in preparation for an active shooter situation and have put in place technologies to help prevent or minimize casualties in the event of such.
Our board meetings are
public meetings and community members are always welcome. If you have questions or concerns you’d like to discuss, please don’t hesitate to call. Thank you for the opportunity to serve the students of Mohawk School District.
