COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — State school board members in Ohio say they are shocked at accounts of sex games, test tampering and other potentially criminal acts at a Dayton charter school, and they plan to investigate. Horizon Science Academy of Dayton is one of 19 affiliated schools in Ohio that have been associated with an influential U.S.-based Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen. The FBI is investigating three of the Ohio schools.
The first of two public hearings is taking place Monday, July 14 on possible changes to Dayton’s drinking water protection program. Drinking water for more than 400,000 people in Montgomery and parts of Greene County comes from two wellfields that tap into the Great Miami Buried Valley Aquifer, a shallow sand and gravel aquifer that is vulnerable to contamination from surface spills.
Developer Miller Valentine has released plans for the redevelopment of the 38-acre Montgomery County fairgrounds. The current site of the Montgomery County Fair could become a mixed-use development that resembles The Greene in Beavercreek.
Dayton's new "Midtown District" would be 60% residential and 40% commercial, including at least one hotel, several restaurants and other retailers, and a 35,000-sq.-ft. grocery store.
