Parents of children attending diocesan Catholic schools gathered at the Ohio Statehouse and the Vern Riffe Center in Columbus for the Office of Catholic Schools’ first Advocacy Day on March 29.

Parents shared with three state legislators why they value Catholic education and support Catholic schools.

The day kicked off just after noon at the Statehouse.

Five parents met with Catholic state Sen. Bill Reineke (R-Tiffin), who represents Ohio’s 26th Senate District, which covers Marysville and area north of Delaware County. The district includes Marion St. Mary School.

Reineke is sponsoring Senate Bill 1, which would rename Ohio’s Department of Education as the Department of Education and Workforce Development (DEW) with the director appointed by the governor. Most duties of the State Board of Education would be transferred to the DEW.
