Paolo DeMaria made another stop in the area to see a nationally recognized school in Bluffton.

Last week, Bluffton Elementary School was named a "National Blue Ribbon School". So state superintendent DeMaria stopped by to visit with students and staff. Sixteen schools in Ohio were awarded the blue ribbon title out of 349 in the country. Schools are recognized due in part to their high performance on assessment tests and does an excellent job closing the achievement gaps between student groups and all students over the last 5 years.

"Every school, I think, is doing great things but it's always great to have those that have reached that sort of highest level to be called out and celebrated for the great work they do," said DeMaria. "In some ways, I think they mirror lots of other schools but they also serve as an example to everybody else. To say, 'Hey look we can do it, you can do it too. Let's keep working together to be the best we can possibly be.'"

DeMaria also had a discussion with Bluffton University education majors while on his visit.
