Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton Public Schools Board of Education held a special meeting Tuesday afternoon, shortly after releasing preventative measures for the upcoming school year.

The new guidelines detail how parents, students, teachers, and the schools will work together to limit the spread of COVID-19 this fall.

“I hope we can all stick together and move the district in the same direction we’ve been moving for a while. And I hope we are all prepared to make the sacrifices that we need. This is a very difficult time for everybody in this state, everybody in this country, and we feel the pain of the administrators and the support staff that we’re asking to take this step with us,” said Mohamed Al-Hamdani, President of the Board of Education.

During the meeting, the Board approved a salary freeze for administrators and support staff to help cope with the impact the virus is having on state funding.
