EDUCATION

The Ohio Supreme Court will again take up an appeal by the defunct Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow (ECOT), this time to consider the online charter school's argument that it should have the right to challenge in court the State Board of Education's determination that the school had been overpaid.


GENERAL ASSEMBLY/STATEHOUSE

A bill to distribute funding made available through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act is among several pieces of priority legislation that senators have been working on during the last several weeks, Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) said Tuesday. "We'll absolutely be back in session, probably in the not-too-distant future," Obhof told Hannah News in a phone interview, saying he hopes to meet in a few weeks, but it could take longer depending on the circumstances. 


HIGHER EDUCATION

Among Ohio's universities, Ohio State University (OSU), University of Toledo (UT), and Miami University have all announced they will be holding virtual commencements for their spring 2020 graduates in wake of the coronavirus outbreak.
