* DUE TO DEMAND AND OUR DESIRE TO ACCOMODATE ALL WHO WANT TO ATTEND, THE EVENT CAPACITY HAS BEEN INCREASED AND WILL NOW EXCEED SEATING CAPACITY. An attempt will be made to acquire additional seats but there is no promise at this time. Therefore, the ticket you are receiving is with the understanding that you may be in the Standing Room Only area. Thank you for understanding the need to get the word out and for being willing to go with the flow. We don't want to turn away any concerned citizen or neighbor. See you Friday!
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear and discuss the implications of Ohio’s adoption of Common Core Standards with the nation’s leading voices on CCS. We’ll address the issues surrounding parental and local control, quality of instruction, legalities of federal intrusion and the unfunded cost concerns.
