This afternoon on Dec. 6 three students at Fairfield High School reported that a student at the high school made some comments today that would be considered as threats. In addition the students reported that this student was in possession of a knife. The administration and school resource officer immediately located the student and confiscated two knives. The school district administered the appropriate disciplinary consequences. The student will not be attending Fairfield Senior High School. The school district worked closely with the Fairfield Police Department who will be handling the criminal investigation.

What is EdChoice? The EdChoice Scholarship Program provides up to 60,000 scholarships to students who attend “underperforming” public school buildings, as defined by the Ohio Department of Education.

The scholarship must be used to attend private/parochial schools that meet requirements for program participation. No private/parochial school is held to any academic accountability standard by the state of Ohio. The EdChoice Program will result in public taxpayer dollars being used to fund tuition payments for students at private/parochial schools (Read more)...
