Providing educational opportunities that allow our young people to succeed today in school and tomorrow in whatever profession or vocation they choose is an important responsibility of all citizens of the Kettering and Moraine communities.
Maintaining local control of our school district is also important, as it allows us to decide what those educational opportunities will be.
In effect, we are able to determine not only what opportunities our children will have, but also what opportunities will be available for future generations of Kettering students.
Local control of our schools is maintained by the citizens of our community and is overseen by the five elected members of the Board of Education.
Each of the five members is elected to a four-year term. The job of the Board of Education is to represent the "moral ownership"-- that is, the residents of Kettering and Moraine - in determining and demanding appropriate organizational performance within the school district.
Citizens are invited and encouraged to attend school board meetings. The Board of Education holds Work Sessions and Regular/Business Sessions. All meetings begin at 6 p.m., with the Work Sessions scheduled to take place in the Firebird Board Room at 500 Lincoln Park Blvd., and the Regular Sessions scheduled to take place in the Recital Hall at Kettering Fairmont High School, 3301 Shroyer Road.
On occasion, it may be necessary to schedule a board meeting at a time and/or location other than the usual time and location. If this is necessary, it will be noted on the district's website.
Upon request to the Superintendent, the District shall make reasonable accommodation for a disabled person to be able to participate in this activity.
Under Ohio law, the Board of Education may hold executive sessions to discuss personnel matters, property purchases, court action, confidential matters as designated by federal or state statute and details of security arrangements. These sessions are used for discussion only; any official board action must take place in a public session.
Citizens are encouraged to contact any Board of Education member or administrative office with questions, comments or concerns regarding school district issues. In addition, you are invited to contact the district's Office of Community Relations at 937-499-1458 or e-mail Kari Basson, Coordinator of Community Relations.
