Campaign themes


In an interview with the Journal-News, Roden noted that his top priorities as a board member would be engagement with the local community and higher district scores on the state report card.[1]

What was at stake?

Incumbents George N. Jonson, Glenn Stitsinger and Anna Harvey sought re-election to the board. They were challenged by newcomers Roden, Steven Isgro and Robert W. Weigel. 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.[3]
