ATHENS, Ohio (March 28, 2007) -- The Ohio University Childcare Task Force and the Corporation of Ohio Appalachian Development will host two open forums on Monday, April 2, in Baker University Center room 240.
The first forum will be held from noon to 12:50 p.m., while the second will run from 1 to 2 p.m. Both forums are open to the public.
During each open forum, the Childcare Task Force will solicit feedback from the audience after sharing the findings from its recent Web-based survey of the Athens area. Representatives from COAD also will be on hand to share area childcare data.
The Childcare Task Force is a result of Ohio University's strategic plan, Vision OHIO. During its development, the university recognized that the request for more childcare options in the Athens area was a common need.
Provost Kathy Krendl commissioned the Childcare Task Force and charged it with researching the childcare needs of the Athens community, particularly university employees and students, and recommending solutions back to her.
Since its creation, the Task Force has developed a partnership with the Athens Area Chamber of Commerce and COAD in order to help involve the community in the process.
