PERRYSBURG - Teachers and students have successfully woven individual laptops into their classroom culture, and the district is expanding its technology program after the first year.
Dubbed "1:1" after the even ratio of students to computers, the program awarded Macbook Air laptops to freshmen and Samsung Chromebooks to students in grades 5 and 8 this year.
Now, administrators are looking at new models and assigning computers to grades 6, 7 and 10. Current ninth-graders will keep their Macbooks, with new computers purchased for incoming freshmen and their Chromebooks being distributed to younger students.
The Chromebook model is being tweaked, with the district opting for a more "rugged" Lenovo, rather than this year's Samsung computers. The Lenovos offer more durability for an extra $100 per unit, said Brent Schafer, director of technology.

Bowling Green High School will bring a star-studded production of "Mary Poppins" to the Bowling Green Performing Arts Center stage this weekend.
The high school is not importing any big-name talent, though the title role is being played by Abby Paskvan, Bowling Green's own gospel recording artist.
The magical nanny Mary Poppins comes from the stars, explained director Jo Beth Gonzalez, and those stars shine a light on aspects of the character not seen in the Disney hit movie.
"One of the things that make this production different is there's a lot of references ... to some cosmic place from which she came," said director Gonzalez. "There's even a number 'Anything Can Happen' that takes place in the heavens."

The Bowling Green Christian Food Pantry has been seeking a new home for some time, but on Friday, the time frame to relocate became a bit more pressing.
Shirley Woessner, coordinator of the pantry, said she received a call from Greenbriar, Inc., which manages the property, giving her notice the owner, Bob Maurer, was going to be doing some renovations to the building on West Wooster Street and they had to vacate by July 1.
"I was told we needed to get a board meeting together because we had to move," Woessner said. "I don't know we can be out that soon."
Though originally portrayed to Woessner as a firm date, Maurer has since backed away from the date being absolute, but says, "I want them to be diligent about their search."

Man pleads guilty to threats at N.B. school PDF Print E-mail

A Cygnet man indicted in connection with a threatening letter sent to North Baltimore schools last fall pleaded guilty Tuesday.
Dwight Bower, 57, appeared in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Robert Pollex. He pleaded guilty to a single count of inducing panic, a second-degree felony.
Bower was arrested without incident in October following a joint investigation that involved North Baltimore police, the Wood County Sheriff's Office, the Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification and the U.S. Postal Service.
Bower had reportedly sent "an anonymous letter with a non-specific threat" received by Superintendent Marlene North on Oct. 3. A subsequent forensic examination of the letter led authorities to Bower later that month.
There was heightened police presence at the village schools following the incident, but the schools were not closed and ran as scheduled. The district has security systems in place, as well as a school resource officer.
