State Board of Education members to address League of Women Voters
Members and guests of the Westlake/North Olmsted Chapter of the League of Women Voters of Greater Cleveland will delve into the workings of the Ohio State Board of Education (OSBE) at its Monday, March 15, meeting via Zoom. The speakers, two elected members of the OSBE, Dr. Christina Collins and Meryl Johnson, will be introduced at 8:00 p.m., following the 7:30 p.m. chapter business meeting.
Dr. Collins was elected in November 2020 to represent the widespread District 5, which includes Westlake and Bay Village. She is an adjunct professor at Kent State University and formerly served as curriculum director in Buckeye Local Schools. Ms. Johnson represents District 11, which covers the city of Cleveland and the remainder of Cuyahoga County that is not included in Dr. Collins’ district. A retired Cleveland Public Schools teacher, Ms. Johnson was first elected to OSBE in November 2016 and was re-elected in November 2020.
The role of the OSBE and current issues being debated by the Board will be the focus of the discussion, which will include a question-and-answer period. The presentation will also be recorded for later viewing.
Members will receive the Zoom link for this meeting by e-mail. Guests may request the link by leaving an e-mail address on the chapter’s voicemail by noon on March 15. The voicemail number is 216-246-6496.
