COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A state senator is leading a series of meetings around Ohio to gather feedback from health experts, parents, educators, coaches and others on co-curricular school activities.

Sen. Cliff Hite will be joined by other legislators at the events in Columbus, Findlay, Cleveland and Dayton.

The Findlay Republican says he is interested in hearing expert testimony and personal accounts on a range of issues, including pay-to-participate fees, student athlete health concerns and school start dates. He says he hopes to hear from experts in youth concussions and sudden cardiac arrest.

Hite says co-curricular activities are important to students’ educational and social development and he believes requiring high fees to participate might limit opportunities.

The meetings begin Nov. 12 in Columbus and run through Nov. 23.
