Edison Local Schools Superintendent Tom Roth said the biggest advantage for students attending other schools, especially EHOVE Career Center, is the campuses offer courses not available in their district.
Forty of Edison’s 118 juniors attend EHOVE. Ten attend BGSU Firelands College and one does coursework through Lorain County Community College.
Of the 120 Edison seniors, 31 attend EHOVE and 14 are at BGSU Firelands.

Of the 209 seniors at NHS, 57 attend EHOVE.
“Six of those EHOVE students also participate in CCP. Six seniors participate in CCP full-time and 40 attend NHS and participate in CCP part-time,” Cooley said.
In Bellevue City Schools, CCP is in its first year of implementation.
“Bellevue students have been attending EHOVE since its inception in the late 1960s and taking PSEO (Post Secondary Education Options) since the inception of the program in 1989. College Credit Plus is the new law which replaced PSEO at the beginning of the 2015-16 school year,” Superintendent Kim Schubert said.

At Monroeville High School, 26 of the 59 juniors are at EHOVE.
“Five of the 26 take a class at MHS in the morning,” Monroeville Local Schools Superintendent Ralph Moore said.
“Sixteen juniors are College Credit Plus students at MHS. Out of the 16 students, four of them are part-time at MHS and BGSU Firelands,” he added.
