At the May 30, 2019 Board of Education meeting, Mr. Steve Bittence and Mrs. Heather Miller from the Wickliffe Schools Facilities Committee presented the committee’s findings to the Board. The committee made a recommendation to the Board to construct a new PK-12 building on the current high school campus. The Board of Education accepted the recommendation of the committee. Mr. Spiccia and Ms. Haffey will be working with financial consultants and legal counsel on putting a ballot issue together to make the request to the community to approve the new building. In order to place the issue on the November ballot, the Board will have to pass resolutions at the June and July Board of Education meetings. 

The Facilities Committee consisted of educators, community members, and staff from Then Design Architecture. The committee met 12 times beginning in October 2018. The Board is grateful to and appreciative of the efforts of the members of the committee.

Attached is the presentation made at the May 30, 2019 meeting for your review. If you have questions, please contact Mr. Spiccia directly. The Board is excited about bringing this opportunity to the students and the entire community.

Thank you for your continued partnership and support.

Wickliffe High School has been accepted into the Microsoft Philanthropies TEALS computer science program. Beginning next year, students will have the opportunity to take the Computer Science Principles course modeled after the award winning University of California Berkeley CS10 course. The course will be taught by WHS Technology teacher Ms. Kathleen Valenti and she will be assisted by local volunteer computer scientists and technology experts.

WCS Student Programs and Initiatives

The attached presentation speaks to some of the work Wickliffe City Schools’ staff is doing through the Student Ten Year Plan, Entrepreneurship Programs, Problem Based Learning Initiative and Internships. We urge you take a look at it and share with other members of the community. The Wickliffe City Schools are continuing to do outstanding and cutting edge work and our students are benefitting from that work. I am proud of the work our staff is doing and the programming we are providing. The Wickliffe Schools are Inspiring Students to Learn, Lead, and Serve.
