TONTOGANY – Four Wood County school districts will be among seven to share in a $855,000 state grant to improve technology use in the classroom.
The grant was celebrated this morning with an event held in the Otsego Schools auditorium.
“I’m here just to congratulate and celebrate,” said Ohio Schools Superintendent Richard Ross, during his remarks.
Otsego, Perrysburg, Eastwood, Rossford, Springfield, Maumee and Anthony Wayne districts filed a joint application to the state’s Straight A Innovation Fund for a grant to replace traditional textbooks with electronic resources that the districts will design jointly.
The Ohio Controlling Board met Monday afternoon and approved the application by a unanimous vote.
The grant amounts to a total of $855,583.
“This is a customized proposal that’s been brought by the folks in these school districts,” said Ross.

Kathy East thinks she has one of the most magical jobs of all - she's Mrs. Claus.
The former Wood County District Public Library children's librarian has spent her four and half years of retirement dressing up as Santa's better half.
It's a job she took on for kids and herself.
"It's special for them to see Mrs. Claus," she said. "But it's also pretty special for me."
After her husband surprised her by dressing up as Santa for a staff holiday lunch a few years ago, East went on eBay to get a costume for herself.
Ever since, the magic has stuck. East has been in the Bowling Green Holiday Parade and visits community centers around Wood County as Mrs. Claus.
One her favorite places to visit is the Wood County library.

For Dr. Carlos Baptista, a longtime dream has finally come true.
A professor at the University of Toledo College of Medicine, and a longtime Bowling Green resident, Baptista recently cut the ribbon on a new museum at the institution to showcase portions of the human body prepared for anatomical study.
That museum, The Liberato DiDio and Peter Golblatt Interactive Museum of Anatomy and Pathology, opened its doors at the medical college on Dec. 10.
"I'm realizing a 20-year-old dream of creating this museum," said Baptista, who has taught at UT for more than 30 years, at the opening. Baptista is an associate professor in the school's neuroscience department, and teaches gross anatomy - the study of human anatomy's larger elements - to medical and graduate students. He is also the course director for the scientific and clinical foundation for human organ donation and transplantation.

Jeremy Albrecht will spend four years in prison for the crash that resulted in the 2011 death of a Bloomdale woman.
Albrecht, 34, Findlay, was sentenced Monday in the courtroom of Wood County Judge Reeve Kelsey.
Albrecht previously pleaded to one count of aggravated vehicular homicide, a third-degree felony, and one count of operating a vehicle while under the influence, a first-degree misdemeanor.
He had initially been indicted on two counts of each charge.
The charges stem from a July 18, 2011, motorcycle crash on Ohio 18 near Bairdstown. Albrecht reportedly missed a sharp turn in the road. He and his passenger, Angela Cook, then 32, Bloomdale, were ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Albrecht was also injured in the crash.
