March "Super Chat" Podcast Now Posted

Posted on: March 1, 2020
Super Chat

The March edition of the "Super Chat" podcast is now online at www.southwestschools.org/podcast.

In this episode, Superintendent John Hamstra discusses the district's new workforce development initiative.  These pathways provide non-college bound students with job readiness skills when they graduate high school.  

The ground breaking for the athletic renovation project is set for March 5.  This project is being spear-headed by the Harrison Athletic Boosters with no tax dollars used.  A $250,000 grant from the Cincinnati Bengals and the NFL, along with thousands in private donations, have allowed this project to come to fruition.

Finally, Mr. Hamstra provides the monthly update on the facilities project.  The project is on schedule and on budget.  At Crosby and Harrison Elementary, slabs on grade have been poured and walls are currently going up.  At the Central Campus, over 1,000 aggregate piers have been drilled, and footers are being poured.

Be sure to follow Mr. Hamstra on Twitter @SLSDSuper for the very latest highlights from throughout the district.
