Zanesville City Schools start classes on Wednesday the 27th and the Coordinator of Operations for Student Services Kevin Appleman is one of those school officials who's excited for the kids to come back. "Yes, Wednesday is the first day for our children, for our students and which were very excited about, let's get the year started as I always say. Its nerves for everybody but we are excited, the buildings are ready to go, on Monday we had the city wide Work Shop, which we had all the teachers come in and Tuesday is Professional Development Day, all the teachers go back again but the very first day of school is Wednesday. "
With the new football field at the high school ready for game time and new school buildings in the process of being built, Zanesville schools have a lot to look forward to, but Appleman says theres a lot more than that. "Success. Every school system in Ohio is looking for is to have a safe school year, number 1. And just so all the students are learning. The teachers are hoping to have success with all the students, bring up our test scores and everything. As I said as all the schools are. Just a safe great year is what I'm looking forward to. "
Appleman adds, with school starting on Wednesday, look out for the students walking to and from school in cross-walks. As well as following the rules of school bus safety.
