Akron Public School officials are hoping to attract more teachers to the district during a statewide education job fair this weekend. The Ohio 8 Coalition Job Fair in Columbus will conduct on-site interviews for those interested in teaching in a number of Ohio school districts, including Akron and Canton.

APS Recruitment Coordinator Teresa Kossuth says they're in need of educators who can teach english as a second language -- especially in North Hill where many refugees have settled.

"Because our diverse population of students is growing, we have the need for teachers who have an endorsement to teach english as a second language," said Kossuth.

Kossuth said one of their main priorities is to find passionate teachers.

"While some of the challenges may be greater in teaching in an urban district, the rewards tremendously outweigh that."

The job fair will be held at the Embassy Suites North in Columbus on Saturday, March 12 at 9 a.m.

Columbus: No State Cash For Browns Camp Move

Browns training camp could still move to Columbus, but it looks like state money won't be involved in moving it from Berea.

Cleveland.com reports that Columbus officials are dropping their request for 5-million-dollars in state funding for the project.

The head of the Columbus Partnership wrote in a Columbus Dispatch column calling the group's intents "misunderstood", saying the group never intended to use state money to poach from another region.

Talks about moving the Browns training camp still continue. The team announced that this year's camp will still be in Berea.

CBrent Larkin, former editorial director of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, originally reported on Cleveland.com on the request for state money to build a facility that would house Browns training camp and youth sports.

A proposal to move the Cleveland Browns training camp to Columbus is attracting some political controversy.

An article by Cleveland.com's Brent Larkin unveiled a plan that would have Ohio taxpayers to help pay for the Browns to move their training camp closer to Ohio State.

Larkin tells WAKR.net that wording highlighting a facility for youth in the proposed state funding plan was worded that way for a reason.

"The way they worded this, they clearly wanted this to slip through unnoticed, Larkin tells WAKR's Jasen Sokol. "I blame the business leaders in Columbus for that, far more than I blame the Browns."

State Representative Mike Dovilla represents Berea. He says it's not just about his district.

"If we allow this to happen, and allow for one region of the state, to steal taxpayer money and send it to another for a private function like this...it ought to be funded privately, if that's what they wish to do," Dovilla tells WAKR's Jasen Sokol, "It's Berea that's on the chopping block today, it could be your hometown tomorrow."

The team itself has weighed in on the controversy.

A Browns statement confirms the talks to relocate training camp to Columbus, but the team says it'll hold training camp in Berea this year.

The team says "Columbus is a good location" for the team's training camp for "multiple reasons", but says the reported Columbus project is being considered by leaders there as a "serious option"...and that they're in discussions with what the team calls "potential partners".

The Browns say they will "throughly evaluate all options" and will continue to hold open practices in Berea for fans.

The team also says it would "incur all the costs associating with moving and holding operations" at a site away from Berea.

(Cleveland Browns, statement) "When we first explored the potential opportunity to hold training camp out of town, we conveyed that we would make the decision based on what is best for our football operations and their preparation for the season. Our football group believes it would be a positive, as it is for nearly a dozen teams in the NFL. In relocating training camp, we would incur all the costs associated with moving and holding our operations at a remote site. Clearly, we need a facility from which to operate and are in discussions with potential partners. Columbus approached us regarding creating a site that would serve area youth for recreational purposes the 11-plus months a year that we are not using the space, but those are discussions and plans that Columbus leaders are working through, which we will review as a serious option. Columbus is a good location for us for multiple reasons, including to give more convenient opportunities to our fans across Ohio to experience their team in person. We will continue to thoroughly evaluate all options while remaining committed to hosting open practices for fans at our year-round facility in Berea. The 2016 Browns training camp will be held in Berea."
