The Cambridge City School District Board of Education met in special session on Tuesday morning to approve the Annual Appropriations and the Amended Certificate of Resources which are due to the Guernsey County Auditor’s Office.

While in session, the board also approved a resolution regarding the employment of substitute teachers which enables the school district to hire substitute teachers that do not hold a post-secondary degree during the 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 school years provided the meet specific requirements. 

“Cambridge, like most school districts, is struggling to find enough substitute teachers,” Superintendent Dan Coffman said. “The State of Ohio has provided some relief from previous standards that gives school districts the ability to hire additional substitutes. In order for us to take advantage of this opportunity, we needed to pass this resolution that ensures we continue to hire substitute teachers that meet specific requirements.” 

The board approved an overnight trip for Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) students to attend the fall leadership training at the Heartland Retreat and Conference Center in Marengo, Ohio, October 10-11, 2022.
