Southern to Return on Jan. 25

Plans to resume face-to-face instruction were postponed for a week and now students will return to Southern Local Schools on Jan. 25. The board held a series of sessions on Jan. 15, beginning with a special meeting to approve Scott Hart to fill the unexpired term of Patricia Exline, who submitted her resignation after more than a year in office. Scott is expected to complete the term, which end on Dec. 31, 2021. The gathering also included an organizational meeting where Kip Dowling, who attended remotely, returned as board president with Linda Morris back as vice president followed by brief tax budget and record retention sessions and a regular meeting with a laundry list of issues tackled by school leaders.
