Working with students in the Fairmont Career Tech Center's Interactive Media Tech Prep Program, the district produces one cable program a week that airs on Miami Valley Cable Council's Channel 6. The weekly segments highlight news and information about the schools, including everything from a spotlight on the annual Spirit Chain competition, to information about a particular school's community event to highlights of our student athlete's performances on the field, court or course.
We welcome your suggestions of things you would like us to spotlight on "This Week in Kettering." If you would like to see information about a student or student group, a staff member, a school event or a PTO/PTA activity, simply drop us a line at:
We'll look into the request and do our best to give you as much news and information about your schools as possible!
