The Lakeview Board of Education met in regular session Monday and:
Revised the district's sports participation agreement regarding alcohol and tobacco. Athletes must not sell, distribute, use or possess any mood-altering chemicals (drugs or alcohol) or tobacco of any kind, and will not be involved in any criminal related activity. A first offense will result in the athlete's being dismissed for 10 percent of the season. On second and third offenses, the offender will be thrown off the team immediately and banned from the sport for one year (second offense) or for the remainder of his or her middle or high school years (third offense). Athletes and their parents will have to sign off on the policy before the student will be allowed to participate in the sport.
Approved updating the school district's policy manual. This will be done by NEOLA of Ohio, a private company that has also done school policy manuals for Warren, Niles, Girard, Howland, and Maplewood. The process usually takes between six months to one year and will cost about $14,000.
Heard board vice president Larry Swiger announce that the groundbreaking for the new Trumbull Career and Technical Center's Adult Education Center will be next week. The new facility will be built alongside the TCTC in Champion. The current adult training center is on Salt Springs Road in Lordstown.
