How to Navigate Your Next IEP Meeting

September 5, 7:00 pm at the Bexley Public Library

IEP meetings can be intimidating, confusing, and overwhelming. You often find yourself sitting across the table from teachers and other representatives who speak the same "language", tossing around acronyms so quickly it can be hard to keep up. 

Bexley Education Stronger Together (BEST) is hosting a mock IEP meeting on September 5th and will recreate different scenarios that can occur during an IEP meeting. Join BEST to be confident, informed, and prepared for your next IEP meeting. You can find more information here

Mosquito Spraying Scheduled for August 20th @ 8:30 pm

Mosquito Spraying Scheduled Starting at 8:30 pm on Monday, August 20th

Due to a mosquito trap in Bexley recently testing positive for the mosquito species which is a carrier of West Nile Virus, Franklin County Public Health will be performing a mosquito treatment in Bexley on August 20th, beginning at 8:30 pm. This treatment is scheduled for the evening, after bee and other insect populations are no longer active or vulnerable, and when the mosquitoes that are West Nile Virus carriers are most active.  Note that this treatment will not impact all mosquito species which are active in Bexley, so residents should continue to be vigilant about removing sources of standing water, etc to discourage mosquito population growth. A map of the region being sprayed can be found here.

Residents who wish to avoid any contact with the treatment are advised to keep windows closed and to avoid outdoor activity from 8:30 pm until trucks have completed spraying (spraying is estimated to be completed by 9:30 pm). Residents may opt out of spraying at their property by filling out a "no spray" request form by clicking here. For more information on the testing and treatment program offered by Franklin County Public Health, click here.
