Recently, State Representative Dani Isaacsohn traveled to Washington Court House City Schools to engage in discussions with students and staff, learning more about education in the community.
“It was a pleasure to tour Washington Court House City Schools, and to see the incredible efforts being made by administrators, teachers, counselors, and staff to provide an excellent education for their students,” said Rep. Isaacsohn.
Students and teachers provided unfiltered and honest feedback to Rep. Isaacsohn in thorough conversations, offering an inside look at the intense curriculum offered at WCHCS, as well as providing an on-the-ground perspective to the impact of educational policies.
“I particularly enjoyed seeing the transition to the ‘Science of Reading’ curriculum in action,” commented Rep. Isaacsohn, “while watching one class of 5th graders discuss Don Quixote and another debate the merits of a ‘minimalist’ lifestyle.”
In addition to classroom interactions, the legislator participated in in-depth discussions with administrators and staff, covering a spectrum of topics across the academic realm. The visit also shed light on the grant-funded rejuvenation project at the Historic Washington Auditorium.
“There are exciting things happening in Washington Court House, and I'm eager to do everything I can in the legislature to provide them with more support and investment."
WCHCS Superintendent Dr. Tom Bailey expressed gratitude, stating, “we’d like to thank Representative Dani Isaacsohn for taking the time to visit the Blue Lion Family and dedicating time to understand the intricacies of education in our community.”
