The Galion City School District Board of Education met on March 20, 2024. The Board reviewed, discussed, and, when necessary, approved preliminary agenda items, as well as provided time for community input. Following those initial items, the Board moved to student recognition.

The Board recognized four students who have consistently demonstrated the Portrait of a Tiger trait, Balanced, throughout the month of March. These exceptional individuals have demonstrated stability in managing their academic pursuits along with their personal interests and responsibilities:

  • Karmen Heydinger - Kindergarten

High School Athletic Director Matt Tyrrell also provided a 2023-2024 Winter Sports Report. Tyrrell detailed team records and standings and highlighted the many notable achievements, including MOAC team and individual athlete recognition. He then expressed gratitude to retiring Head Swim Coach Ted Temple for his unwavering dedication and invaluable service to our athletes and the school community for the last 31 years. 

Regular board business included the review of past meeting minutes, acceptance of donations and Board Policy revisions and review. Staffing, field trips and summer camp recommendations were made and approved. The Treasurer’s Report included a financial statement and focused on food service and enrollment numbers.
