Grading Improvement - Ohio Education Reform Campaign
 
01:40
The Ohio Education Reform is a project that began at the Dayton Regional STEM School in Kettering, Ohio at the start of 2015 as a part of the U.S. Government class unit on modern campaigns. Through the development of this campaign, our goal is to make Ohio's education system as effective as possible in educating tomorrow's leaders. This campaign is student-run, pulling its resources from many districts in Ohio. The issues that this campaign targets include: Problems with standardized testing, issues with school funding, along with an umbrella topic of the general disconnect between local school districts and the Ohio Department of Educational. This is a campaign for anyone who cares about improving Ohio’s education. This campaign gives you a chance to have a say in the future of you, and your children’s learning. We are here to improve classroom settings and the overall school experience of students in Ohio. This skit demonstrates how schools are graded with a system that relies heavily on major improvement. Although growth is important, it does not address issues like schools that are already successful. Other categories solely address growth and achievement within very specific groups. Currently, many Ohio schools that previously were ranked highly are now receiving failing grades due to this system.

ESSA: Guaranteeing equitable access to effective teachers using the State Equity Plan (08/24/2016)
 
33:11
Equitable access refers to giving all students the same opportunities to be served by qualified and effective teachers and principals. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires states and districts to ensure that poor and minority students are not taught at disproportionate rates by ineffective, out-of-field or inexperienced teachers and must measure and report on progress toward eliminating inequities. In this ESSA webinar recording, the Ohio Department of Education discusses Ohio’s 2015 Plan to Ensure Equitable Access to Excellent Educators, which already defines the terms required in ESSA. Ohio would not be required to amend its current plan. The webinar shares state strategies to ensure equity and discuss what next steps will need to occur at the local level. Specific attention will be paid to state and local school requirements, the State Equity Plan as opposed to Local Equity Plans, currently available Equitable Planning Access tools and resources, as well as Ohio’s root cause analysis. Please visit http://education.ohio.gov/essa for the latest information on ESSA, including details about additional webinars and regional meetings.

Organizational Learning and Data Use in Schools and Districts: Strategies for Improvement
 
01:57:26
Dr. Kara Finnigan, associate professor of educational policy at the University of Rochester, presents on organizational learning in schools and districts. Effective learning organizations need strong connections and trust among teachers, principals, and other school leaders, but Finnigan has found in her own research on district-level social network analysis that connectedness often is rare in low-performing districts, and that high turnover contributes to this problem. Discussant Susan Yom shares positive results in increased connectivity and teacher practice within her district as a result of extensive professional development.

Education Reform: Progress and Promise.m2p
 
52:49
Education Reform in Ohio Film strips, mimeographed worksheets and chalk have become historical relics of the classroom. It's a new world with great challenges and opportunities for today's students, parents and educators. Stan W. Heffner, Superintendent of Public Instruction for the Ohio Department of Education will join the CMC audience to speak about changes in the state's educational system at the forum on Wednesday, July 25. Joining the discussion will be Mark Real, president and executive director of KidsOhio.org., an nonpartisan, nonprofit educational advocacy organization. Data shows that student achievement in this country continues to fall behind in comparison to other countries. An educated workforce leads to greater economic success on the local, state and national levels but what can be done to insure Ohio students' are ultimately up to fulfilling the needs of today's businesses? The Ohio Department of Education has recommended raising the expectations for Ohio students to help insure a brighter economic future. A wealth of information is available on the website of the Ohio Department of Education including the iLRC (interactive Local Report Card Home). With a few quick clicks, anyone can look at the report card for any school district in Ohio. The report shows data on proficiency tests including the number of state standards met, % of students who are proficient or advanced, including within subgroups such as race/ethnicity and students with disabilities. The 8-page report also reveals benchmarking progress including comparison with other districts. Finally the report includes graduation rates, attendance rates, enrollment figures, spending per pupil, and performance by students with disabilities. Perhaps a particularly interesting measure is the district's performance based on the length of time a student is in the district. Research has shown that moving a student from the school to school generally has an adverse affect on performance. The data in these reports can drive decisions within the schools. Technology has changed so many aspects of education including new ways to deliver instruction. Digital academies or distance learning are a growing option for students to learn at home under the instruction of certified teachers. School boards are re-accessing policies for the use of smart phone and laptop computers in the classroom. For parents, the ability to keep track of their child's homework and school progress has given them a tool to assist their child's path to success. In the same way that students are learning with technology, there are increased option for teachers and administrators to learn via on-line classes and discussions whether it be for an advanced degree to general professional development. On July 2, 2012, Governor John Kasich signed the Cleveland Plan into law. This plan is unique because it received bi-partisan support including Democratic Mayor Jackson in Cleveland to Republican Governor Kasich. All involved are hopeful that success in the Cleveland schools will become a model for schools throughout the state. Cooperation among the teachers' union, the school administration, charitable foundations and the Greater Cleveland Partnership led to this evolutionary plan. Major components in the structure of the district include performance-based pay for teachers instead of only seniority based pay; increased accountability and responsibility to the city and schools for new charter schools' performance and improved reporting about existing charter schools. Particularly unique is the preference for the Cleveland Schools to share its levy funds with charter schools that are sponsored by or under contract with the school district. Instead of a fight between public schools and charter schools, this plan is viewed as a win for students. Mayor Jackson said this plan is "reinventing public education in our city and serving as a model of innovation for the state of Ohio."

Educating Children In Search of Better Results: Richard Ross, Ohio Superintendent
 
48:58
The State Board of Education's vision is for all Ohio students is "to graduate from the PK-12 education system with the knowledge, skills and behaviors necessary to successfully continue their education and/or be workforce ready and successfully participate in the global economy as productive citizens. Ultimately, all students will graduate well prepared for success." Seems like an obvious and straightforward goal, yet today's news overflows with stories about what a seemingly impossible task this really is! CMC's next two forums examine the challenges we all face when it comes to educating our children. Just appointed by Governor John Kasich in March, Ohio's Superintendent of Public Instruction, Richard Ross leads off the CMC double header by discussing his thoughts on the topic of educating Ohio's children with Mark Real, president and CEO of KidsOhio.org. As the new leader of the state's public schools, Ross will share how the Ohio Department of Education is working towards improving the educational and future opportunities of the state's children attending public schools. Ross reports to the State Board of Education, which is comprised of 19 members, eleven elected and eight appointed by the governor. His job is to reach his board's vision through overseeing 3,868 schools including 290 community schools. The board has adopted four tenets to achieve success. They are: • Teaching 21st century knowledge and skills for real-world success; • Effectively delivering support for a high quality education; • Providing sufficient resources which are efficiently managed; and • Developing a statewide outreach and communication strategy on board policy and the importance of education in the 21st century. During Ross' short tenure with the department, several educational initiatives begun by his predecessor, Stan Heffner, were approved by the legislature. These include the Cleveland Transformation Plan, the Third Grade Reading Guarantee, revisions to Teacher and Principal evaluation systems and the A-F Local Report Card. Ross was praised for the success of the Reynoldsburg schools where he was superintendent from 1988 to 2008. The hope is that his leadership for Ohio schools will achieve similar success.

GEMS Education Solutions' Chris Kirk on Education Reform
 
03:24
GEMS Education Solutions CEO Chris Kirk education reform in both developed and developing countries. Find out more about the Global Education & Skills Forum: http://www.educationandskillsforum.org Don't miss new Big Think videos!  Subscribe by clicking here: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Transcript -- We do have a real crisis in education. In the developing world, in Africa and Asia, we still have so many children out of school. Often the figure that is cited is around 140 million children, some people are saying as high as 250 million children who do not have access to a school place. But actually there's also a question what do we do once of those children are in school? Because many of them are in a class where the teacher is not qualified or indeed where the teacher is completely absent from that class. In the developed world the issue is equally strong because we're spending 12 years of a child's education and they are leaving school and they don't have the skills that employers and society say that they need them to have. And we have mass youth unemployment. We have a lot of a graduate unemployment. And at the same time we had a real gap between the skills that are required and what it is that those young people are able to do. I think it's really important that we look at the data, we look at the evidence of what works when we're looking at how to do you make every school a great school. For example, here in GEMS Education Solutions we've developed a methodology for supporting schools in improvement. And at the heart of that is an understanding of how you make a school better. First of all it's about educational excellence. We need to look at the quality of leadership, quality of teaching, the curriculum. Very importantly how a teacher's empowered to plan, assess, develop their practice and be the lead people for taking the profession forwards. And by doing that we find that standards can rise much more quickly. But equally important, how do we engage the parents? This is a key part of educational effectiveness. We know that children with engaged parents improve in their educational quality much more quickly than those with parents who were disengaged in education. The other side of the coin into education effectiveness is operational effectiveness. And this is something that we in educations have only recently become much better at. This is about how do we efficiently deploy the resources that we have. It's also about how do we introduce the right processes in our schools. Businesses will look in detail at their processes, what is it that we do from top to bottom to deliver the right result. In schools, often it can be more intuitive. However, by analyzing the key processes in a school and actually making sure that each of them is being delivered in the most efficient way by the right people using the right technology, we can actually help to use our money better. And this is the point around financial effectiveness because if we are delivering high quality education and we're doing it in a way which is operationally effective, then we're making the best use of our resources. It's also very important to make sure that all of the stakeholders are really engaged in the work you're doing. So what is it that the parents think, what do the teachers think, what do the students think. How does it all come together to make sure that we have a school that's going to continue to improve, be critical of itself and do the very best it can for its community.

Strategic Planning is the process of looking at all aspects of your school and planning how you wish to move the school forward. It provides the 'big picture' of where you are, where you are going and how you are going to get there. With a strategic plan, everyone is working towards the same vision, trying to reach the same goals, and building commitment to the organization. Strategic planning needs to be supported through technology. The Six Pillars App optimizes resources aligned to the district's goals to ensure that every student is well prepared for success in college, career and life. The Six Pillars represent the framework that will drive the Phoenix Union High School District to achieve desired aspiration. The elements of the framework are: • Student Development • Professional Development • Family Involvement/Empowerment • Community Engagement • Culture of Excellence • Leadership By concentrating energy and resources on the worthy goals that matter most right now, we can make the most difference to the lives of the students in our care.

Increasing Academic Achievement with a 1:1 iPad program

Increasing Academic Achievement with a 1:1 iPad program https://esparklearning.com/ Located just outside of Dayton, OH, Beavercreek City School District partnered with eSpark in January 2014 in an effort to increase academic achievement. In this video, learn how Beavercreek NWEA MAP assessment scores to create differentiated learning plans for 7,500 students. Shortly after launching eSpark, Beavercreek administrators noticed that students were engaged in a way that hadn’t been possible in traditional group lessons. “I’ve had my high kids really feel like they’ve been challenged. They’ve had to really think on their lessons, and that may be the first time they’ve felt pushed to do their best,” stated Nichole Deschapelles, fourth grade math and science teacher. Data-driven diagnosis allowed Beavercreek students to engage with highly differentiated content. In just one semester, students completed over 7,000 eSpark missions that targeted skills across 56 different Common Core domain and grade level combinations. Fifth grade teacher Tara Brenner described the impact of iPad learning on the academic achievement of one of her students, Sophia: “Sophia has started to take responsibility for her own learning. The independence she has learned from eSpark has carried over to other areas of her day. She is able to get started on assignments without needing further direction from me and only asks for help once she tried to solve the problem on her own.” Another teacher, Rebecca Jackson, remarked, “With our gifted children who are being challenged and stretched, it’s amazing that they actually have to sit there and think and really work hard at their quest. It doesn’t come necessarily easy to them, and that is priceless for us not spending all that time doing 28 different lesson plans for each child.” Not through learning how eSpark can increase the academic achievement of all students?

OETA Story on Wilson Middle School Improvement List aired 08/28/09
 
02:24
This is a story that aired on OETA Public Television's The Oklahoma News Report in Tulsa Oklahoma as reported by Cathy Tatom and photojournalist Edwin Wilson. For more information or to contact us, please go to the new and improved www.oeta.tv The verbatim script follows below... OKLAHOMA HAS 42 SCHOOLS ON ITS NEW NEEDS IMPROVEMENT LIST. WHEN SCHOOLS GO ON THE LIST THEY OFTEN GET A LOT OF ATTENTION FOR THEIR DEFICIENCIES. BUT FEW ARE RECOGNISED FOR GETTING BACK INTO COMPLIANCE WITH THE FEDERAL NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND LAW. OETA'S CATHY TATOM TAKES US TO WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL TO DISCOVER HOW IT GOT ITS STUDENTS BACK ON TRACK. First things first, your heading... STUDENTS AT WOODROW WILSON MIDDLE SCHOOL ARE CELEBRATING GETTING THEIR SCHOOL OF THE THE STATE'S "NEEDS IMPROVEMENT" LIST BY TAKING ON A CHALLENGE FROM VETERAN LANGUAGE ARTS TEACHER, LINDA RICHMOND. Linda Richmond/Teacher: "I've made the challenge, put the challenge before them to do as well or better than my 8th graders did the past two years." IT WAS HARD WORK BY THOSE STUDENTS THAT GOT THIS SCHOOL'S TEST SCORES UP AND THE SCHOOL OFF THE SO CALLED, "AT RISK," OR "NEEDS IMPROVEMENT LIST. WILSON WAS ONCE ONE OF DOZENS OF SCHOOLS ACROSS THE STATE WITH TEST SCORES THAT REPEATELY DID NOT MEET GOALS SET DOWN BY THE FEDERAL NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT. Caleb Starr/Principal: "You get on the list because your test scores aren't high enough, and you get off because they are." GETTING OFF THE LIST BECAME A WHOLE SCHOOL EFFORT. ANALYSIS OF TEST SCORES SHOWED MANY STUDENTS WERE HAVING TROUBLE SCORING WELL ON THE MATH PORTION OF THE TEST. WHILE SOME OTHERS HAD DIFFICULTY WITH READING. TO FIX BOTH ISSUES, TEACHERS DIDN'T JUST PUT MORE EFFORT INTO TEACHING MATH CONCEPTS OR READING SKILLS. INSTEAD, THEY FOCUSED ON TEACHING ONE BASIC SKILL THAT APPLIES TO BOTH SUBJECTS. Caleb Starr/Principal: "Specifically reading. Reading impacts every single area so one of the things that's done here at Wilson is that all kids take a reading class regardless of if they are a high performing student or a low performing student or even a student in the middle we know that reading, you have to be able to read your math textbook to be able to understand math concepts, you have to be able to read to be able to read your book to understand any subject so we specifically target reading and that's one of the ways we've really help our test scores go up." "Getting off the needs improvement list isn't easy, it takes two full years of improved scores to do it." NOW IT'S UP TO THIS NEW CLASS TO KEEP ITS TEST SCORES HIGH ENOUGH SO THE SCHOOL DOESN'T SLIP BACK ONTO THE NEEDS IMPROVEMENT LIST. PRINCIPAL CALEB STARR SAYS HIS STAFF ALREADY HAS A PLAN TO CATCH PROBLEMS WHILE THEY'RE SMALL AND EASILY REMEDIATED. Caleb Starr/Principal: "We take benchmark tests periodically so the teachers look at the benchmark data and see which specific pass skill that they are not doing well in." THEN MORE EMPHASIS WILL BE PLACED ON THOSE SKILLS TO KEEP THESE STUDENTS ON TRACK FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS. AND KEEP THE SCHOOL OFF THE STATE "NEEDS IMPROVEMENT" LIST. IN TULSA, I'M CATHY TATOM, THE OKLAHOMA NEWS REPORT.

Les Brown - How To Learn From People Around You ►About Les Brown: Les Brown (born February 17, 1945) is a motivational speaker, author, radio DJ, former television host, and former politician. As a politician, Les Brown is a former member of the Ohio House of Representatives. As a motivational speaker, Les Brown uses the catch phrase "it's possible!" and teaches people to follow their dreams as Les Brown learned to do. Les Brown was the host of The Les Brown Show. ►Les Brown was born with Les Brown's twin brother, Wesley, in an abandoned building in a low-income section of Miami, Florida. Les Brown was subsequently given up for adoption and adopted by Mamie Brown, a 38-year-old single woman who worked as a cafeteria attendant and domestic assistant.

Bearspaw Christian School - Parent Testimonials - Admissions / Marketing - Calgary Video Production
 
03:36
http://www.bearspawschool.com Hear what parents of BCS students have to say about their experiences at the school... Bearspaw Christian School (BCS) is a non-denominational, private Christian school for Junior Kindergarten to Grade 12. BCS is located in the northwest corner of Calgary with an enrolment of 550+ students. Our facility features bright classrooms with natural lighting, a large gymnasium, library, science labs, a modern computer lab, and a music/band room. Technology is incorporated into our program with computer-assisted learning and virtual classes. BCS is accredited by Alberta Education and affiliated with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the Association of Independent Schools and Colleges in Alberta (AISCA), and the Independent Schools' Athletic Association (ISAA). MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT At Bearspaw Christian School we ask, what is God's primary reason for wanting children educated? Is it so they can get a job and make money, or so they can leave home and support themselves, or so they can become productive members of society (as defined by the world)? While these are all good things, they are not God's primary concern. So, what is God's primary reason for wanting children educated? God wants us to equip children to be dedicated followers of Christ to impact the world for His kingdom. He wants them to be kingdom builders. To equip children, BCS focuses on both the mind and the heart. Based on Gods' gifting, our goal is that children realize their full personal academic potential and to develop a strong personal relationship with Christ. This is why our vision is ... "Teaching Minds...Reaching Hearts...Transforming our World". At BCS, we ask how God defines the word education. He does not define it solely as mastering academic subjects like math and science, or developing emotional intelligence, or values and morals. Although these are good things, His definition is much broader, holistic and integrated. Some say we need our students to see how God connects and relates to math, science and the other subjects. As the Creator of math, science and everything seen and unseen to suggest God needs to be "connected" to what He created falls short of His desire and is a serious understatement. God needs to be the center of all subjects taught and cannot be separated from anything we study or teach as He is the creator of everything. To separate Him creates untruth, which is incongruent with the word "education". "Education" means we teach all subjects with God as the head in His rightful place as Creator. Every child has been wired by God uniquely, and has been given specific gifts and talents that need to be identified and fully developed for God's purposes. We want to create an environment where students meet God and develop a personal relationship with His son, Jesus Christ. BCS is not only an educational institution, but is a part of God's much greater plan. God's plan should compel us, with great urgency, to invest our lives to equip our children to be mighty in spirit, soul and mind. We as parents and educators have an important role to play in their development. BCS has been on an exciting and passionate quest to live out our Christ-centered mission. The Bible makes a profound statement in Proverbs chapter 29 that "without a vision the people perish". This statement speaks volumes of how God has wired us as human beings. We were made to live life in community, to join ourselves together around something that creates passion and purpose, pulling us into mission towards God's greater redemptive purposes for us and for our world. That something is vision! The community of Bearspaw Christian School has caught God's vision to be a school that teaches minds, reaches hearts and transforms our world. Our vision has created a community of teachers & staff, parents, grandparents and students who are part of God's much greater redemptive plan of transforming our world through generations of godly young people. We believe the call of God on us is so great, this moment in our history so significant, that our response needs to go beyond teaching academics in a Christian School setting. It calls us to be a unique equipping centre of teachers, parents, and administrators who, by joining together to live out our mission, we demonstrate Christ to our students for the purposes of developing in each of them personal academic excellence and Christ-like character. In this hour of our history God is calling us to self-sacrificing devotion to the development of students to become godly generations of spirit filled, moral leaders. In Christ, Kelly Blake - BCSPresident For more information on BCS, please call 403.295.2566 or info@bearspawschool.com. Calgary Video Production by: BizBOXTV

Keir Educational Resource celebrates 40 years!
 
06:00
Keir Educational Resources celebrates 40 years of providing professional education study media for those professionals in the financial services and insurance industries. Meet President of Keir, Henrietta Keir Nye, CFP®, CLU, ChFC, CPCU, and Chairman of the Board and Editor-in-Chief, John Keir, J.D. Keir Educational Resources was founded by Jack C. Keir, Ph. D., CPCU, CLU in Wayne, PA in approximately 1968. Dr. Keir had been the Director of Examinations at The American College where he developed the idea of preparing supplemental study materials for the Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®) examinations. The College was not interested in offering supplemental study materials at that time, so Dr. Keir left The American College and took a position with Temple University as a professor of Insurance. Earning a CLU® designation in 1968 required the completion of five courses with the writing of five essay exams. All course exams were given only once a year. These courses were later divided into 10 examinations which were administered two times a year. And later changes included the switch to multiple choice question exams and the requirement change to eight courses instead of ten. With the success of CLU® supplements, Dr. Keir was approached by Dr. Harry Brooks from Miami University who recommended the writing of supplements for CPCU courses. Dr. Brooks and Dr. Keir teamed up for writing supplements for CPCU, INS, AIC and ARM exams. In 1983 Dr. Keir decided to reduce his involvement in the company and move to Florida. At that time, his daughter Henrietta Keir Nye took over the day to day operations of the company. The fulfillment center was moved from Wayne, PA to Middletown, OH. New printers were located in Ohio and mail orders were switched to Ohio. In 1984 the phone orders were moved to Ohio. In 1985 the company took a huge step forward and computerized the organization. The preparation of the manuscripts by computer was a great improvement for authors and editors! This of course improved the final product for the students and decreased the time needed for preparation. The CFP® certification was beginning to grow at this time. To promote the Keir CFP® supplements, Keir attended its first national convention in Anaheim, CA in October, 1985. This line had been started in 1984 and was beginning to get recognition. Conventions has been a large part of the company promotional activities. Today the company exhibits at over 10 shows per year. The American College responded to the growth of CFP® interest with the new ChFC designation. Keir followed with supplements for the ChFC courses. With the addition of so many new lines, there was a great need for more authors and a full time editor. John Keir, son of the founder, joined the ranks in 1989. John Keir holds a bachelors degree from Williams College in English and a law degree from Villanova University. Soon after his joining the company, John started to write the first company materials for NASD exams. The business has had several locations in the Middletown, OH area. The Keir organization started as a cottage industry in the Keir home and moved to the Nye household in 1983 and to the new Nye house in 1986. Thanks to the growth of the organization and the need for new employees and new space, the company selected its first real office at 425 Clark Street in 1992. The operation out grew those facilities in 2000 and moved to the current location at 4785 Emerald Way. Today(2008) the company prepares study materials for the CLU®, ChFC®, CFP®, CFA® CPCU, and the FINRA securities licensing examinations.

2016 Safe Dig Month Press Conference - Ohio
 
03:02
Thanks to the Montgomery County Environmental Services team for sharing the original video file with us. You can follow them here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmpgVcfFyV-5DOie9RswqyQ Read the press release here, and Dig Safe! The Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners proclaimed April as Safe Dig Month, in cooperation with the City of Centerville, the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office and the Miami Valley Utility Safety Council. The proclamation encourages residents and businesses to call 811 and contact the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (O.U.P.S.) to get underground utilities marked before digging or excavating. A utility line is damaged once every three minutes nationwide, and one-third of these incidents are caused by failure of the professional excavator or homeowner to call 811 before beginning their digging project, according to Roger Lipscomb, president of O.U.P.S. “I cannot stress enough the importance of calling 811 before digging or excavating. This simple action can prevent personal injury, property damage, utility interruptions, and even death,” said Judy Dodge, president of the Montgomery County Board of County Commissioners. “We appreciate the excellent work ethic and professionalism of our County Engineer Paul Gruner and his team. They do a great job of locating and protecting utilities on all of their vital construction projects.” “At the City of Centerville, we promote safe digging practices because it is in the best interest of our citizens and businesses,” said Centerville Mayor Brooks Compton. “We take our responsibility to safeguard public safety very seriously, and following safe digging practices helps to protect our citizens, utilities, homes and businesses.” Anyone can get help locating underground utilities by calling 811 to speak to an O.U.P.S. customer service representative. O.U.P.S. will then contact local utilities companies to mark their underground utilities in the area. This simple step can keep people and property safe during construction or excavation projects. Some projects that may require a call to O.U.P.S. include: • landscaping, • digging holes for fence posts or a mailbox, • anchoring supports for decks and swings sets, • planting trees or removing tree roots, • driving landscaping stakes into the ground, • and installing a retainer wall. For more information and safe digging tips, visit the O.U.P.S. website at www.oups.org. About Montgomery County Environmental Services Montgomery County Department of Environmental Services provides trash disposal, recycling, drinking water distribution, and wastewater treatment to the citizens of Montgomery County. The department also offers educational outreach to local schools, communities, and businesses that want to learn more about conservation and sustainability in the Miami Valley region. About the City of Centerville, Ohio The City of Centerville, Ohio, became a city on December 2, 1968, and is home to about 23,700 people. Benjamin Robbins named the community "Centreville" after his hometown, Centreville, New Jersey, and because it was located between two rivers and central to other communities like Dayton and Lebanon. By 1900, the U. S. Post Office changed the spelling to Centerville. The city takes great pride in the unique array of cultural, artistic and entertainment activities that make Centerville such a great place to live, work and raise a family. About the Miami Valley Utility Safety Council The Miami Valley Utility Safety Council (MVUSC) is a proactive partnership to promote safety through preventing damage to all utilities for the purpose of maintaining services integrity to our customers through education, communication, and cooperation. The MVUSC is one of six councils sponsored by the Ohio Utilities Protection Service (O.U.P.S.), which is a non-profit organization that serves as the communication link between utility owners and anyone planning excavation activity in Ohio. Visit www.facebook.com/mvusc for more information. About the Montgomery County Engineer’s Office The mission of the Montgomery County Engineer's Office is to maintain and improve the local roadway network, which will provide for the safe and efficient movement of the traveling public and a healthy local economy. The office maintains 320 miles of county roads and 541 bridges.
