Want to help influence vocational education in Warren County?
Residents of the Kings Local Schools now have that opportunity due to a change in Ohio law.
Kings residents with business experience now have an opportunity to represent the district on the governing board of the Warren County Career Center.
Under a change in state law, each participating school district no longer has to appoint a member of its school board to sit on the vocational school’s governing board.
Local boards may appoint members of their community who have experience as chief executive officers, chief financial officers, human resource managers or other business, industry or career counseling professionals who are qualified to discuss the labor needs of the region.
Toward that goal, the Kings Board of Education will consider requests from community members to represent it on the governing board.
Superintendent Valerie Browning will accept inquiries, letters of interest and a completed questionnaire through 5 p.m., Jan. 6.
The board will consider candidates and make a selection at its Jan. 7 organizational meeting which begins at 6:30 p.m., at the Kings Education Center, 1797 King Ave.
Those interested in applying may email Browning, who will send out the questionnaire: email@example.com
