With area automotive companies and other businesses planning to bring hundreds of new jobs to the Toledo area, the time is golden for Toledo Public Schools students and others who want a manufacturing job.

To make it easier for interested people to get information, TPS and several organizations have planned two community meetings at which interested students and others can hear directly from employers on what they can expect, what skills are needed and how motivated workers can qualify for these good-paying manufacturing jobs.

When Kevin Jewell, a 2007 TPS Proud graduate of Bowsher High School, signs emails, he puts the word Sensei before his name.

Behind that simple word is a lot of hard work and effort that has made Mr. Jewell a force to be reckoned with in martial arts tournaments.

The Ohio Department of Education has changed the graduation requirements for the Class of 2018 (the current juniors). In order to inform parents and guardians about these changes, Toledo Public Schools is holding a series of meetings at its traditional high schools. The schedule is:

• Bowsher High School, 2200 Arlington Ave.

Families with students in grades 4 through 8 will have a chance to discover what most of the high schools within Toledo Public Schools have to offer on Thursday, January 12.

On that evening, the six comprehensive high schools of Toledo Public Schools – Bowsher, Rogers, Scott, Start, Waite and Woodward – along with Jones Leadership Academy and the Toledo Technology Academy - will have staff and students on hand to tell their stories of why they think their school is the best. The event at each school will run from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

This event is designed to take the place of 8th grade visitations to home high schools. (Toledo Early College High School is holding the third of its five Open Houses the following week, on Thursday, January 19, from 4:30 to 7 p.m.)

Toledo Public Schools strives to provide an environment where all students can thrive and be challenged and supported. We currently support that goal through a variety of approaches:

  • Curriculum differentiation
  • Gifted sections of ELA and Math for 5th and 6th grades
  • Subject acceleration and EHSO
  • Whole grade acceleration following ODE guidelines and using the Iowa Acceleration Scale and approved assessments
  • College Credit Plus (CCP)
  • Honors and Advanced Placement (AP) classes
