Utica Shale Academy Has Location, Website

From Columbus Business First:
A high school aimed towards getting students jobs in the Utica shale play just took another step toward reality. The Utica Shale Academy of Ohio in southeastern Ohio now has a location and website for its students.
The charter school for grades 9-12 will be in a room at the Southern Local Jr./Sr. high school in Salineville, a village of about 1,300 in eastern Ohio’s Columbiana County, said John Wilson, superintendent of the Southern Local Board of Education. The school has established a new website that provides more information on its blended education initiative.
“Part of it is a flexible schedule,” Wilson told me. “You don’t have to be there every day. If they have to work, or live on a farm, whatever it may be. It definitely gives options. It’s not a traditional, sit-down-for-eight-hours-and-leave.”
