PUTNAM COUNTY - Ohio Education Matters announced today that the Ottawa-Glandorf Local School District is one of the most efficient school districts in the state in providing non-instructional services, outpacing other similar districts in food-service, school administration and transportation costs.
Kevin Brinkman, Superintendent of O-G schools is presented a certificate of achievement as "best-in-class" from Michael Harlow, public policy consultant from Ohio Education Matters.
Presenting Ottawa-Glandorf superintendent, Kevin Brinkman with a certificate of achievement as "best-in-class" is Michael Harlow, a public policy consultant for Ohio Education Matters (OEM), a subsidiary of KnowledgeWorks based in Cincinnati.
The rating stems from a report issued by OEM this year as port of its nine month study of K-12 education called Ohio Smart Schools. That report showed 135 school districts across Ohio that seem to get more for their money in central-office administration, school-level administration, food service, student transportation and building maintenance and operations than other similar districts.
Three other Putnam county schools were presented similar awards, they include Kalida for food service, Ottoville for Maintenance and Columbus Grove for school administration and transportation.
