Parkway Graduate Contributes to the Design of His New Alma-Mater
Eric Baltzell, 1990 graduate of Parkway High School is an electrical engineer and partner at Garmann/Miller Architects-Engineers in Minster, Ohio, the company selected for the planning and execution of building Parkway School District's new PK-12 school which opened last fall 2006. 
 
Eric's role was to design all of the electrical and technology systems. This included all power systems, lighting, fire alarm, security system, access control system, sound systems, telephone system, video system, and computer networking. His professional credentials include: Professional Engineer for the State of Ohio, BICSI - RCDD, BICSI - NTS Specialist, and a member of these engineering professional organizations: NSPE, IESNA, IEEE, BICSI

With roughly 240,000 square feet (which is over twice as large as the old high school building) Garmann/Miller Architects-Engineers had  approximately two years of planning, one year of design and two years of construction to see this project come to fruition. 

They assisted the school district with the bond issue campaign and master planning, then they designed the building
and followed the job through construction. 

The total project cost was $36 million, according to Eric who shares these interesting statistics:


  • Over 1,000 anchor bolts
  • Almost 800 tons of structural steel
  • Over 340,000 brick
  • Over 250,000 SQFT of metal roof - this equates to over 2,500 squares
  • Over 50 projection screens
  • Over 400,000 SQFT of asphalt
  • Over 1,000,000 SQFT of grass seeding
  • Almost 500 doors
  • Approx. 4,800,000 LF of electrical wiring = 909 miles
  • Approx. 350,000 LF of technology wiring = 66 miles
  •  
    Eric has been with Garmann/Miller Architects-Engineers for six years, where the firm designs all types of commercial office buildings, schools, municipal, industrial and healthcare buildings.  After graduating from Parkway, Eric continued his education at  the University of Toledo from which he graduated in 1994. 

    Eric's design experience includes working in Columbus, right out of college, for Korda/Nemeth Engineering,
    followed by 5 years at Fanning/Howey in Celina before making the move to Garmann/Miller.  His hobbies are golfing, weightlifting and spending time with his many friends and family.  But, he agrees that his work is a passion with him, "There is much satisfaction in helping people to design and construct their vision," says Eric.

    Eric, a resident of Celina  is the son of Jim and Shirley (Wilson) Baltzell of Rockford.

     
     
     
     

     

    Parkway Local Schools to Focus on Bus Safety

    The US House of Representatives has unanimously approved recognition of National School Bus Safety Week and Parkway Local Schools joins the school districts throughout Ohio and the nation in celebrating this important week.

    This year’s theme, “I see the driver – The driver sees me” reminds Ohio’s 1.3 million school bus riders to stay out of the danger zone and in direct eyesight of their school bus driver.  Most student accidents involving school buses occur as a result of motorists who attempt to pass a stopped school bus with flashing red warning lights while students load or unload.  Ohio Revised Code 4511.75 requires motorists to stop for a school bus any time it has stopped for students to load or unload.  Motorists may not resume motion until the bus has resumed motion.

    Eighty percent of Ohio students ride on school buses each day, and nearly 17,000 bus drivers, mechanics, trainers, secretaries and supervisors are dedicated to providing safe transportation for children in the state.  National studies show school buses are the safest method for transporting young people—30 times safer than passenger cars.

    "Ensuring the safety of students as they enter and exit the bus is crucial," said Parkway Superintendent Doug Karst.   “We are training our bus drivers to be cautious, but we need help from parents to make sure they watch for school buses stopped to load and unload children.  No issue is so urgent that motorists cannot wait for a school bus.”

    Mr. Karst offers the following tips to remind your child while getting off and on the bus:

    • Always remain in direct eyesight of the bus driver;

    • Get to the bus stop in plenty of time;

    • Take 10 giant steps back from the curb while waiting for the bus and 10 steps when  exiting the bus;

    • Never try to get anything left on the bus after exiting;

    • Never reach underneath the bus;

    • Always follow the driver’s directions for how to cross the street;

    • Be alert to traffic and look both ways;

    • Always cross in front of the bus, but only when the bus driver signals it is safe to do so.

    WHY IT TAKES SO LONG AT BUS STOPS . . .

    The bus driver must:

    • Check mirrors for traffic conditions and apply brakes well in advance to warn traffic from the rear
    • Actuate warning lights 300 feet in advance of the bus stop
    • Stop at the designated bus stop
    • Set the parking brake
    • Place the gear shift lever into neutral gear for both manual and automatic transmissions to prevent the bus from lunging forward
    • Open the service door to actuate the warning lights and place one hand over horn to warn students of potential hazards
    • Give students directions to go to their designated place of safety and remain there until the bus has left the stop
    • Look to identify students and potential hazards in the danger zone, counting and checking all mirrors, before closing the door and canceling the warning lights
    • Close the door when all areas are clear.  Door must be closed before the bus moves.
    • Release the parking brake after closing the door
    • Recheck traffic in the right and left side mirrors prior to pulling away
    • Turn off strobe light, if used, after the bus resumes a safe roadway speed

    SIGNAL FOR SAFETY . . . 

    • When a school bus has alternating flashing amber lights on, be prepared to stop and watch for children in the roadway.
    • Never pass a school bus with red flashing lights and an extended stop arm.  The bus is loading or unloading students.  Traffic may not move until the bus has resumed motion.
    • If a bus is stopped on a road with fewer than four lanes, all traffic proceeding in either direction must stop.
    • If a bus is stopped on a road that has four or more lanes, only traffic proceeding in the same direction as the bus must stop.
    • If you fail to stop for a school bus, your error will not go unnoticed.  Bus drivers are required by law to report your license plate to a law enforcement agency, and an investigation will be conducted to identify the driver of the vehicle for enforcement purposes.

    Penalties for not obeying these laws could cost you up to $500 and a maximum one-year suspension of your driver license. 

    RAILROAD PROCEDURES . . .

    The bus driver must:

    • Bring the bus to a complete stop
    • Open the door and driver window
    • Turn noise of such as heater, defrosters, and radio
    • Request silence on the bus
    • Look and listen for approaching trains

    The students must:

    • Observe silence to allow the driver to monitor train traffic, if any
    • Remain silent until the bus has completed crossing the tracks

    Other motorists must:

    • Be prepared for the bus to stop
    • Allow the driver to complete their procedure and then proceed safely

    In Ohio, school buses are not permitted to cross tracks if a signal is activated, even if it is malfunctioning, unless a law enforcement or railroad official is present and motions them across.

     

    WHERE IS THE DANGER ZONE?

    The danger zone is the area that extends 10 giant steps around all sides of a school bus.  The two most dangerous places are in front of the bus and near the right rear tire.

    • Children must avoid the danger zone all around the bus.
    • Do not try to pick up items dropped in or near the bus-the bus driver might not see you!
    • Take 10 giant steps away from the bus, go straight to the driver-designated place of safety and wait until the bus leaves.
    • Do not approach the bus until the driver has opened the door and indicated it is safe for you to proceed.
