Campaign themes


In an interview with the Journal-Times, Harvey stated that her top priorities as a board member include improving academic performance, increasing engagement by parents and providing greater resources to teachers after the introduction of new state evaluations.[3]

What was at stake?

Incumbents Harvey, George N. Jonson and Glenn Stitsinger sought re-election to the board. They were challenged by newcomers Robert W. Weigel, Steven Isgro and Arthur Roden. The district was dealing with poor performance in the latest report card issued by the Ohio Department of Education. This report from the 2012-2013 school year indicated that students only met 58.3% of performance indicators and earned an F in terms of annual measurable objectives.[4]

Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.[7]
