Kent State Trustees meeting September 12, 2018
Kent State University

Kent State’s Geauga County campus is about to see a major building project.  But it’s not for the university.

The university board of trustees approved leasing some of the Kent campus in Burton to a local school system. In May, voters in the Berkshire School District approved a $28-million dollar bond issue to build a pre-K-through-12 complex on the site.

A Northeast Ohio school district is developing a website to connect students with manufacturing jobs in Lake and Geauga counties.

The site, NextWork, allows employers to interact with students by posting job openings and hosting forums to learn more about manufacturing.

Wickliffe Superintendent Joe Spiccia sees the site as a way for students not heading to college to find good-paying jobs.
