Blended learning<br />

planned in SWCS<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

As a new school year approaches, there<br />

are a number of questions that have been<br />

at the forefront of the minds of administrators,<br />

parents, students and staff members.<br />

Among those are whether in-person<br />

instruction will be allowed and if so, what<br />

will it look like? Will it be safe to attend?<br />

And what adjustments will be made should<br />

the state once again order buildings closed<br />

to slow the spread of a novel coronavirus?<br />

The answers to these questions are com-<br />

After more than an hour of planting<br />

hundreds of mums, the Friends of<br />

Westgate Park volunteers (above) gather<br />

near a flower bed. Tom Price, a westside<br />

resident who is also a volunteer<br />

with the group, grew all of the 250<br />

mums that were planted on <strong>July</strong> 22 in<br />

his basement. He said that there will be<br />

10 varieties this year and a majority of<br />

these Bell Mums will be introduced to<br />

the public next year. “It will be kind of a<br />

preview event,” he joked.<br />

plex and fluid, say district officials, but an attempt to give clarification<br />

on the upcoming <strong>2020</strong>/21 school year was made at the<br />

South-Western City Schools board of education meeting in <strong>July</strong>.<br />

The opening of the district will largely follow guidelines recommended<br />

by the Ohio Department of Health. Recently, the department<br />

created a color coded warning system<br />

that aims to show prominence of the virus<br />

in each county, thereby making it easier to<br />

implement additional closures or measures<br />

on a county basis.<br />

Under the system, there are four levels:<br />

yellow, orange, red and purple. Under their<br />

guidance, the district will close buildings<br />

and go to a virtual-only format should the<br />

county reach level 4, or purple; have blended<br />

learning instruction at level 3, or red;<br />

and go to 100 percent face-to-face instruction<br />

at levels 2 or 1 (or orange and yellow).<br />

As the county is currently under a level<br />

3, the district intends to open the new<br />

school year on Aug. 27 in a blended learning<br />

model.<br />

According to Superintendent Dr. Bill<br />

Wise, the student body at each building will<br />

be divided into two groups as determined by<br />

an algorithm through the Infinite Campus.<br />

“One group will have face-to-face<br />

instruction on Mondays and Tuesdays, and<br />

the other group will have face-to-face<br />

instruction on Thursday and Fridays,” he<br />

said while presenting the opening of schools<br />

draft to the board.<br />

Those who are not physically in the<br />

building on their designated days will<br />

receive instruction either through materials<br />

sent home with them or remotely as<br />

they did from mid-March to the end of the<br />

2019/20 school year.<br />

The buildings will be closed on<br />

Wednesdays so there can be a “deep cleaning”<br />

of the rooms and its furnishings. The<br />

district has committed to two deep cleanings<br />

and frequent daily cleaning of high<br />

touch areas such as door knobs and bathrooms.<br />

Occasionally, there will be weeks where<br />

a holiday lands on a Monday or Friday.<br />

Deputy Superintendent Dave Stewart said<br />

the groupings will move either the days<br />

before or after the holiday, and the holiday<br />

will be spent deep cleaning.<br />

In relation to the groups, Stewart said<br />

families will be kept together and parents<br />

can request their students be moved into the other grouping if it<br />

best fits their work schedule.<br />

Within a month of implementing the blended learning model,<br />

Wise said they should have a clearer picture as to whether it is feasible<br />

to move to the 100 percent face-to-face instruction format. He<br />

said they would like to move to that model on Sept. 21.<br />

Parents who do not want their children to attend in-person<br />

instruction this year are being offered an alternative pathway<br />

through the Virtual Learning Academy.<br />

The Virtual Learning Academy, explained Wise, will be taught<br />

primarily by a district instructor or supplemented by educators<br />

through the Jefferson County Educational Service Center, which<br />

has partnered with the district for more than a decade in a variety<br />

of capacities.<br />

Stewart said upperclassmen taking this pathway will be able to<br />

take electives though some elective courses may be limited due to<br />

staffing.<br />

One caveat of this pathway, said Wise, is that once a parent<br />

commits their child/children to the Virtual Learning Academy,<br />

they are doing so for the entire <strong>2020</strong>/21 school year.<br />

Enrollment for the Virtual Learning Academy began on <strong>July</strong> 20<br />

and runs through Aug. 7. Applications can be found at the district’s<br />

website.<br />

District officials said they are more prepared now to run the virtual<br />

only model should need be than they were when building closures<br />

were mandated in March.<br />

Wise said that in the case of these models, there is a level of risk<br />

to each of them.<br />

“At the end of the day, there is not a way forward that does not<br />

involve some level of risk, either with social and emotional learning<br />

or health consequences for our school and staff,” he said.<br />

He added that the district will do all they can to maintain current<br />

safety protocols to “minimize the impact” to the greatest<br />

extent possible.<br />

The district will also be requiring students and staff to wear a<br />

face mask or facial covering while in the building. Exceptions will<br />

be made for those who have a medical condition with a note from<br />

a licensed physician or school nurse.<br />

The younger students will be allowed “mask breaks” as determined<br />

by the teacher or at recess. They will also have to wear<br />

them while riding the bus. While the district encourages students<br />

to bring their own masks, they will be provided if one forgets to<br />

bring it.<br />

Additional safety measures include hand sanitizing stations in<br />

each classroom; the limitation of shared classroom supplies; the<br />

partitioning of the school’s clinic to separate suspected COVID-19<br />

cases; the elimination of overnight field trips until late November<br />

and the minimization of others; the encouragement to bring individual<br />

water bottles to limit water fountain use; and a grab-andgo<br />

style in the cafeteria. Kitchen staff will also be using barcode<br />

scanners in lieu of student ID number punch in’s. The district said<br />

they will still be offering breakfast and lunch to the student groups<br />

on their designated remote learning days.

Township Focus<br />

Franklin Township looking at police levy in near future<br />

By Amanda Ensinger<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A local township that plans on asking<br />

voters to approve a fire levy this fall also<br />

anticipates asking for a police levy in the<br />

coming years. At a recent special meeting,<br />

Franklin Township Police Department officials<br />

discussed the need to ask voters for<br />

these funds.<br />

“We have a five-year timed levy that is<br />

set to expire at the end of 2022,” said<br />

Franklin Township Police Chief Byron<br />

Smith. “Where things stand at the end of<br />

March or May 2022, we will have to ask for<br />

another levy.”<br />

Smith said the department needs the<br />

funds to keep its current staffing level. He<br />

said prior to this levy being approved, the<br />

department only had five full-time staffers<br />

and were operating limited hours and<br />

shifts.<br />

“Currently, we have 13 full-time officers<br />

and three part-time officers,” Smith said.<br />

“We need an additional levy to be able to<br />

continue to provide the current service we<br />

offer to township residents.”<br />

The millage amount and if the levy<br />

would be timed or permanent is still being<br />

discussed by township leaders.<br />

The police department has two other<br />

permanent levies it collects from township<br />

taxpayers. Those levies bring in approximately<br />

$700,000 a year.<br />

“Those levies are well over 20 years old<br />

and decrease in value as time goes on,”<br />

Smith said. “As a result, we have to find<br />

other avenues of revenue to makeup those<br />

funds.”<br />

Smith said if voters reject a levy, the<br />

department would most likely have to cut<br />

staff and reduce the services and hours of<br />

operation. He said officers would not be<br />

able to respond to some types of calls.<br />

“It really will depend on the type of service<br />

residents want when we ask voters to<br />

approve this levy,” Smith said. “With a<br />

smaller staff, we won’t be able to provide<br />

the same service we do now. If residents<br />

are OK with us not responding to some<br />

types of calls, then they may be OK with<br />

not having another levy.”<br />

Some of the calls officers would not<br />

respond to include minor violations and<br />

home complaints, including complaints<br />

about loud noise.<br />

Smith said if the township is not able to<br />

pass a levy, the department would lose at<br />

least three to five officers.<br />

This would be the second levy the township<br />

would be asking for within a two-year<br />

period as the fire department is asking for<br />

a timed levy this November. The fire<br />

department previously asked for a 19.5-<br />

mill permanent levy in the spring, but voters<br />

didn’t approve the levy.<br />

This time the fire department is going to<br />

ask for a timed levy and the trustees are<br />

still determining the millage amount. The<br />

township is considering anywhere from a<br />

Creative programming in PT<br />

5.89-mill to 13-mill levy.<br />

Staff Writer<br />

A local township is getting creative in<br />

its program offerings in an attempt to keep<br />

residents physically fit, while protecting<br />

them from the novel coronavirus. The<br />

Prairie Township Community Center has<br />

offered some unique programming to keep<br />

residents moving.<br />

Among these programs is outdoor yoga,<br />

which allows community center members<br />

to stay active while socially distancing.<br />

“With the weather warmer now, it<br />

allows us to move some of our programming<br />

outside, which is perfect for social<br />

distancing,” said Rob Peters, township<br />

administrator for Prairie Township.<br />

“Members can safely participate in group<br />

fitness classes, but also socially distance to<br />

protect themselves from COVID-19.”<br />

Peters said the community center is still<br />

offering virtual group fitness classes for<br />

those who are not comfortable coming into<br />

the center. Some of these virtual group<br />

classes include gentle yoga, Hess boot<br />

camp and youth ballet lessons.<br />

The center also has offered some virtual<br />

programming for those looking to learn<br />

something new or want some entertainment<br />

at home. These classes have included<br />

an essential oil series, magic classes, how<br />

to have a chemical free summer and a<br />

healthy home, healthy life course. All of<br />

these virtual group fitness and education<br />

courses are taught via Zoom by instructors<br />

at the community center.<br />

The township will continue to monitor<br />

expenses at the community center and trying<br />

to mitigate costs wherever possible<br />

until it can be fully up and running again.<br />

“Right now, we don’t have the pool<br />

pumping and filtering so that is saving a<br />

lot of money,” Peters said. “We also have<br />

looked at our cable contract and how we<br />

can reduce that and continue to look for<br />

other ways to save.”<br />

The township also continues to look at<br />

how businesses and residents are weathering<br />

the COVID-19 pandemic and offer services<br />

to help those in need. This includes<br />

reminding residents about a foodbank in<br />

the area in case they need food assistance.<br />

“We have a well-established foodbank<br />

on Galloway Road if anyone is in need,”<br />

Peters said. “This foodbank also is accepting<br />

monetary donations if anyone wants to<br />

donate to them.”

Comic book fans and those who love<br />

their summer blockbusters can get their fix<br />

In Entertainment<br />

“e Old Guard” will have comic lovers clamoring for more<br />

and that comes in the form in Netflix’s “The<br />

Old Guard.”<br />

Based on a five-series comic from veteran<br />

Greg Rucka, “The Old Guard” features a<br />

black woman (Gina Prince-Bythewood) at<br />

the helm, two butt kicking women (characters<br />

and actors) in the lead, and a sickeningly<br />

sweet gay couple who are intrinsic to<br />

the plot and cannot be erased out when the<br />

film is released to more restrictive countries.<br />

And if that is not enough of a draw for<br />

you, it has well-choreographed battle<br />

sequences, an arsenal of medieval weapons<br />

and it is a pretty decent film to boot with a<br />

moderate to high entertainment value.<br />

The movie centers around a quartet of<br />

mercenaries who have been fighting<br />

together for ages, and that is meant in a<br />

more literal sense than figurative. The<br />

group is led by Andy/Andromache of<br />

Scythia (Charlize Theron) whose age is<br />

estimated at 1,000. For as long as she can<br />

remember, she has been dying in battle (or<br />

in other ways) only to be revived again for<br />

no apparent reason. Throughout her long<br />

life, she has found only a handful of other<br />

immortals like her and their weariness of<br />

the world and their place in it is beginning<br />

to show.<br />

After an indefinite leave of absence,<br />

Andy is brought back into the fold by<br />

Napoleonic War veteran Booker (Matthias<br />

Schoenaerts) and opposing Crusade fighters<br />

and longtime lovers Joe and Nicky<br />

(played by Marwan Kenzari and Luca<br />

Marinelli, respectively) to rescue a group of<br />

kidnapped girls in South Sudan.<br />

Upon arriving at their destination and<br />

learning more of the mission from former<br />

CIA operative James Copley (Chiwetel<br />

Ejiofor), the quartet quickly discover that it<br />

was nothing but a ruse to get them to<br />

unwillingly unveil their secrets.<br />

As they regroup from the betrayal and<br />

try to determine what Copley has on them<br />

and what he wants from it, they discover<br />

the existence of a new immortal, a young<br />

U.S. Marine named Nile Freeman (KiKi<br />

Layne) who died and revived serving in<br />

Afghanistan. While they have always had<br />

time on their side (or, minor spoiler, so it<br />

seems), it is now of the essence as they try<br />

to track down those who would do them<br />

harm, and those who plan to do harm to the<br />

new immortal as word of her rebirth<br />

spreads through the ranks.<br />

There are a lot of interesting things<br />

about this movie, and a lot of things that<br />

can drive one to levels of irritation. Most of<br />

the latter are minor quibbles, such as the<br />

pop infused soundtrack, the use of common<br />

language in ancient times and weak exposition<br />

by screenwriter Rucka, but the film<br />

itself takes some time to find its groove.<br />

But when it does and the medieval<br />

weapons start to fly, it is a fun yet thoughtful<br />

look at battle and world hardened warriors<br />

who are still trying to find their place<br />

in this universe.<br />

With the vast amounts of history and<br />

backstory to mine, it is no surprise that<br />

fans of the comic book series and cinematic<br />

adaptation are clamoring for more. It is set<br />

up perfectly for a sequel, and maybe a<br />

mini-series spin-off, and it’s not something<br />

I would be averse to either.<br />
