OSBA honors Canterbury and board member Register
The Northeast Region of the Ohio School Boards Association (NEOSBA) honored Canterbury Elementary School and Ron Register, longtime CH-UH Board of Education member, on Oct. 5, at its 2016 fall conference in Wadsworth.
OSBA—which designates area schools that have received national recognition for success in educating students at a high level—recognized Canterbury Elementary School, under the leadership of principal Erica Wigton, as an Outstanding School.
Register was among the recipients of the NEOSBA Outstanding School Board Member Award, and was nominated for the OSBA Outstanding All-Ohio Board Member Recognition. He was also selected to [join] OSBA’s Executive Committee and Legislative Platform Committee.
This past spring, Canterbury was named a High Progress School of Honor by the Ohio Department of Education. That award is given to schools where more than 40 percent of students come from economically disadvantaged homes, yet demonstrated the highest gains in math and reading proficiency, based on 2014–15 Ohio Report Card data.
Canterbury also became an authorized International Baccalaureate (IB) World School for the Primary Years Programme in July, joining a global community of schools offering the program.
