LAST WEEK IN YOUR SCHOOL BOARD

Jan. 16-17th I attended the New Board Member Workshop held at the Embassy Suites in Independence; sponsored by the Ohio School Board Association. The workshop was extremely informative in covering the topics of boardmanship, communications, labor relations, policy, legal, legislative, lobbying, and finance. I truly learn a lot!

I had the honor of introducing myself last week to the members of the Albion PTA at their Jan 19th meeting and hearing about all the great work they are doing for our students and staff. I would like to note that the Albion and all of our schools in the district are doing various projects that focus in being greener for our environment. Our efforts are even rubbing off our parents in the district. During the meeting a PTA mom mentioned to the group about a neat shoe recycling program that Nike has in which people can drop off any type of used shoe they may have at the nearest Nike factory. The nearest drop off point for us is the Nike Factory Store, located at:
549 South Chillocothe Rd., #321
Aurora, OH 44202

At the North Royalton Chamber of Commerce General Membership Breakfast held on Jan. 20th, I had an opportunity to listen to featured speaker, Mr. Glenn Haley, the President and CEO of YMCA of Greater Cleveland. Mr. Haley discussed the history of the YMCA of Greater Cleveland and the proposed North Royalton Family YMCA project and the capital campaign associated with that project. For more information about the proposed North Royalton Family YMCA check out their website at:

Monthly Constituent Coffee
I held my first monthly constituent coffee on Jan. 21st at the French Quarter Café. It was nice that a few residents stopped by to give me their feedback. Those of you not familiar with my monthly constituent coffee, all North Royalton and Broadview Heights residents living in the North Royalton School District are invited to attend. I hold these coffees in order to stay in touch with fellow residents and get feedback on how we are doing on the School Board. They will typically last for two hours and be held once a month at French Quarter Café located at 5540 Wallings Rd. in North Royalton. Please check out my website www.danlangshaw.com for more details on when the next one will be held in February. I will also try to get some of the local newspapers to put out announcement as well in the future.

THIS WEEK IN YOUR SCHOOL BOARD

Don’t forget that the North Royalton City Council has passed a New Driving Law that severely restricts a one’s ability to use his or her mobile phone while operating a motor vehicle. The ordinance, which took effect early this month, prohibits texting or talking on the phone while driving, yet allows drivers over the age of eighteen to use a voice-activated telephone or wireless headset. However, minors, because of their greater likeliness to cause an accident while distracted, are not permitted to use such device. If you have a student driver, please make sure they are aware of this new law.

Two committee meetings this week are Wellness and City Recreation Board:

Wellness Committee Meeting
Monday, Jan. 25th @ 2pm at the Board of Education Office Conference Room; located at
6579 Royalton Rd., North Royalton, OH 44133.

North Royalton City Recreation Board Meeting
Tuesday, Jan. 26th @ 6pm at North Royalton City Hall; located at 13834 Ridge Road,
North Royalton, OH 44133
