Free Vehicle Maintenance Inspection for BHS Students

AAA Ohio Auto Club will conduct free Vehicle Maintenance Inspections at Barberton High School on Friday, October 2, 2015. Such inspections are designed to help avert roadside breakdowns and even crashes.

During 15-minute inspections, AAA certified technicians will help identify potential problems with your student’s vehicle. Technicians will inspect vehicle belts, hoses, tires, lights, fluid levels and batteries. After each inspection, technicians will discuss any problems detected and equip the student with a maintenance checklist to share with you. All inspection findings will remain confidential and occur during student lunch periods, a free lunch will be provided.

Barberton City Schools Finds Way to Save Taxpayer Money

By Patti Cleary


Beginning in 2016, the Barberton City School District has the opportunity to save property tax money for Barberton residents and give the funding for our students a modest increase. Here’s the backstory to what is truly a win-win for Barberton taxpayers and school children!  

Share YOUR America

PAX has approximately 150 kids waiting to find a host family for the 2015-2016 school year.

Whether they hail from Latin America, Europe, Asia, or Africa, PAX exchange students share a common goal: a sincere desire to experience and better understand the U.S. by participating in real-life activities as a student and family member.


Whether you bake chocolate chip cookies, plant flower bulbs, or play fetch with your Labrador Retriever, the things you take for granted will seem fresh and new when shared with a PAX student. American holiday celebrations—carving a jack-o’-lantern, preparing a Thanksgiving feast, or watching a Memorial Day parade together—will create cherished lifelong memories.


As a host family, you welcome this new son or daughter into your home, provide them with a bed, a place to study, and a seat at the dining table. Above all, you encourage the student to engage in American life—while you learn about your new family member’s country and culture. Through the exchange program, PAX students gain a well-rounded understanding of the U.S. while learning to be more reflective about their own country.

College Credit Plus

From State Superintendent Dr. Richard A. Ross

As your child moves closer to high school graduation you are probably thinking about whether he or she will go to college. Will your son or daughter be prepared for higher education? Will you be able to afford it?

These are normal questions for parents to ask. We have good news that can help you answer them if you think college may be in your child’s future. Ohio’s College Credit Plus program offers students in grades 7-12 the chance to earn college credit from any Ohio public college or participating private college while earning high school credit for the same courses, if they qualify academically. If a student qualifies for College Credit Plus, all associated costs are free to students seeking credit from public colleges. There may be limited costs for students seeking credit from private institutions.
