Dr. Dan Good lays out what's new at Columbus City Schools


Columbus City School students head back to class Wednesday.

Superintendent Dr. Dan Good said the district's launch of "Operation Fix It" allowed school leaders to install air conditioning at three of the schools: Cassidy Elementary, Hamilton STEM Academy, and Devonshire Elementary.

CCS expanded "Ohio Days: My State. My Plate." initiative. The program is aimed at increasing the amount of Ohio-sourced foods served in our schools. This year, every apple served in Columbus City Schools will come from an Ohio farm. The district serves about three million apples a year.

Parents have a new tool to keep tabs on their kids. Dr. Good said the district's mobile app can now be used to securely access information on children's grades, assignments, and attendance. They can set up personalized alerts to go directly to their smartphones.

Columbus City Schools begin class on August 23.
