Terra State and Vanguard-Sentinel partnership gives students head start

A new partnership between a local career school and community college is expected to save local families a lot of time and money.

Terra State Community College and Vanguard-Sentinel Career and Technology Centers officially began a partnership to help develop better career pathways for their students on Wednesday.

The goal is to give these students a head start for potential jobs of the future.

"The other side of the issue is you look at our schools with over 30 percent remediation, we need to figure a better way to train our children so that they've got something that they can go forward with school," said Bill Reineke, state representative for Ohio's 88th District.

Rep. Reineke Commends Sixth Deposit Into Ohio's Rainy Day Fund Since 2011

COLUMBUS—State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) applauded the announcement that the Ohio Office of Budget and Management will be making a deposit of $657.5 million into Ohio’s Budget Stabilization Fund, also known as the Rainy Day Fund.

The deposit will be the sixth made since 2011, when there was just 89 cents in the fund. Since taking back the majority in 2011, House Republicans have helped build this surplus by passing balanced biennial budgets and encouraging fiscally responsible policies.

Rep. Reineke Announces House Passage Of Legislation Creating Ohio Corps, Preserving Healthy Lake Erie

COLUMBUS—State Representative Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin) announced the passage of legislation creating OhioCorps, a bill that includes provisions from legislation he joint sponsored with Rep. Scott Ryan (R-Granville Township) that is aimed at helping Ohio’s students, specifically those who are at-risk.

House Bill 508, which was originally passed by the House in April, was amended into Senate Bill 299 during the legislative process. This bill also makes critical investments to support and preserve the health of Lake Erie and its tributaries.

OhioCorps is a mentoring program that would be initiated at Ohio colleges to help at-risk students, which are primary or secondary school students who are at least 13 years of age and who have an expected family contribution of zero dollars or are impacted by family opioid addiction. An appropriation of $2.5 million was included to fund the program, which will be implemented statewide.

Reineke bill aims to smooth e-school policies

State Rep. Bill Reineke has teamed with another legislator to introduce a bill this week that would address shortcomings in Ohio’s laws governing e-schools, but he has not agreed to return funding he received from an e-school founder.

According to a release, the legislation would increase transparency and establish consistent regulations for education providers across the state.

In 2016, e-schools served about 180,000 students in the U.S., providing a non-traditional education option for families. The legislation, House Bill 707, would maintain this option, while making sure the schools are regulated properly to provide quality education to students.
