Currently, Dayton Public Schools is at risk of a takeover after the Ohio Department of Education released school district report cards, and the district got an “F” ranking. The district will find out in September 2019 if the takeover is happening, or if the law about takeovers will change. This would be a dramatic and controversial next chapter for the school district.
Here at the podcast, we’ve discuss the state of DPS with a variety of local politicians, candidates, and community leaders, but we have yet to have a chat with someone from the school district. In this episode, we finally get to discuss the challenges DPS faces with School Board Vice President Jocelyn Spencer Rhynard. She is new to the Board, newly elected in 2018 and will serve until 2022.
In this wide ranging conversation with host Libby Ballengee, Jocelyn discusses her journey to Dayton, sending her children to DPS, her personal epiphanies as a parent, and how she found the inspiration she to run for the School Board and put children first. She also explains the takeover situation, and thoughts on a path forward for DPS.

SleekoGotBars aka SGB is a Dayton rapper who’s just released a new project called, Unlimited Vibes. He stops by DATV to chat with @TheIzzyRock
Born during one of his mother’s three prison sentences, and raised around drugs, alcohol and prostitution until the age of five, SleekoGotBars’s struggles are something that influence his music, but his approach to amplifying these struggles is what sets him apart from other rappers. “Some run away from the pain of the struggle and indulge in drugs and hide behind face tattoos. I’m giving you free game on how to maneuver around the road blocks life puts in your way because I’ve experienced all of it,” said Sleeko.
Raised in Dayton, Ohio, music was always a part of SleekoGotBars’s DNA. Both of his parents sang lead vocals in rock bands, and he grew up with everything from Nirvana to Jay-Z blaring out of the speakers in his home. At age thirteen, after being taken to a recording studio by a friend, he began making music. Not too long after Sleeko went through a rebellious stage and was suspended from school. He was then forced to choose between rap music and his home. Sleeko ultimately chose his passion and found himself homeless, moving around from couch to couch because of it.
With a razor sharp delivery and a rapid fire flow, Sleeko is inspired by early T.I. and Lil Wayne, Freddy Mercury and Chad Bennington. In 2010, under the moniker of Young Dash, Sleeko released his first mixtape, Life On The Edge, and followed that project up with projects in 2011, 2012, and 2014 (projects in 2012 and 2014 were released under the name Sleeko Dash).
