District News

Hasn't anyone done anything with the buildings along the way?


The Crestview Local Schools has an extensive maintenance plan. In fact,here are the totals for repairs and maintenance on just one area...the heating system over the last three years.

FY 2016 = $69,000

FY 2017 = $72,000

FY 18 = $46,000

Total = $188,000

At a public meetings one person said, "don't you have a maintenance plan?"  The answer is yes. Much like a homeowner, the repairs are exceeding the money we have.  As a homeowner, you would go to the bank for a home improvement or home equity loan.  As a school, we have to go to the public to  for bonds. This is why there is a bond issue on the ballot. We have not sought additional help since 1992. But unlike most homeowners, we have help with our project. The state will pay 88% of the cost of a new building, which is less than our repairs. This money from the state is from all citizens across the state including you!  This money will either stay here, or if we decline, it goes to the next district in line.  The State of Ohio WILL NOT  pay for our repairs since  the repairs are so great. What would you do as a homeowner under this circumstance? EX: Homeowner Fred Flinstone needs a new roof. His replacement roof costs $15,000 on his $100,000 home. A person knocks on the door and says, "John, I will build you a new $100,000  home if you come up with 12% or $12,000."



You asked and the Board Delivered!

The Crestview Board of Education passed a resolution adding additional accountability to the proposed bond issue. This is in addition to the checks and balances for school construction that were initiated in 1998 and after with the formation of the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission by the state legislature. Crestview passed its last issue in 1992 under the guidance the Ohio Department of Education. Did you know that ODE only completed 13 buildings in over 20 years? In 1998, the OFCC was formed with design criteria. In one year alone, OFCC constructed more buildings and was alloted more resources for school construction than the Ohio Department of Education was alloted in over 20 years total. The OFCC has reconfigured or built new with over 300 public school systems since 1998. They have implemented over a 1000 page design manual to assure each area is built to the highest possible standards for quality. There are many checks and balances that are listed at the OFCC website. Read the article below for additional information on accountability on the resolution of additional local measures by the Crestview Board of Education...

How does Open Enrollment Work Financially?


Open Enrollment

There is much talk about open enrollment students and how they do not pay real estate/income taxes to our district.  Technically they do not pay taxes to our district directly, however some of their local tax dollars do come to our district indirectly.  Let me give you an internal example to explain.

Superintendent Advisory: Open to anyone who is interested



It is time to meet again for Superintendent Advisory. Your input is vital as we continue to look at ways to grow our district. The committee meets bi-monthly and looks at information and gives community feedback. The committee assists in guiding the Superintendent. Our first meeting for this year is September 19, 2019 @ 7:00 PM in the Home EC room. If you know of anyone that would like to serve please have them call the board office 330 -482-5526. All are welcome!

Leaks...Leaks....and More Leaks



Glad we had a 2 HR Delay today for Teacher Development. Our maintenance staff has been busy on Sunday and Monday shoring up the place because we are leaking everywhere. Rooms of ceiling tile are being replaced. Rooms 206 at the Elementary, HS Gym, HS Home EC, HS Chemistry, HS History, and the Supt's Office all are leaking. These are the things the public does not always see because the building looks shiny and clean. We have a chance to fix this with the help of the State of Ohio. Without the state assistance these repairs become all a local responsibility. We need 9 million dollars in immediate repairs, and 21 million dollars additionally. With  the State help, we can build all new  efficient facility for 5.2 million dollars.

The ability to pay $ 0.00 is NOT an option. Shelter, Heat, and Water are necessities! The fiscally responsible option is to take the opportunity from the STATE. 

HS class schedules

Students may pick up class schedules in the lobby of the HS beginning at 12:00pm Monday 8/20/18. Schedules will also be given to students during homeroom on the first day of school Wednesday 8/22/18. Any questions will be addressed on the first day of school.

Before and After Care Survey Results

Dear Community:

You are AWESOME! We had 73 parents respond whether they needed  before or after care services. We have worked with the YMCA on a proposal; however, the deal fell through. The Y would need a receptionist, insurance etc., whether we offered one YMCA program or several. However, with only one program, the cost factor is too high for just one option. Our dialogue is positive with the YMCA and we hope in the future is to offer multiple programs and to have the YMCA be a presence here at Crestview. At this time it is not feasible.

We have submitted a grant with the County ESC, Lisbon, and Wellsville to offer an after school program here for select students. However, we will not hear on that grant until late July. We are working hard to create partnerships to continue to strengthen our students and families. We will continue to explore every avenue to enhance experiences for our students.

Voice of the Valley: Heart of a REBEL!



Here at Crestview, we know him simply as Mr. B.  He is a part of our traditions, our memories, and our events. Andris Baltputnis has been a long time teacher, coach, AD and the voice of the REBELS. It is only appropriate that he is honored during Teachers Appreciation Week. He is a masterful person and educator! Last year at graduation he reminded everyone that the world is full of rebel fans...."Why else are roads and buses yellow and black?"

Please take a few minutes to watch this video highlighting his local and national work...

Will my tax go up on the new bond issue if property values rise over the length of the bond issue?

The answer is No, The auditor is limited to collecting the yearly payment only.

Here is the explanation from School Treasurer Charlene Mercure.

 If the collections on the bond issue are in excess of what is needed, then the bond issue millage is reduced to ensure that there is not an excess of collections. The county auditor works with the school district to make sure this is not the case.  A school district is not allowed to collect more than is needed to make the bond payments. Thus, if property values increase and collection on taxes exceeds what is necessary to make the bond payments, the millage would be reduced.

Students ask Superintendent Questions about the Future of the District


The Superintendent of the Crestview Schools has been meeting with students semi-annually to allow students an opportunity to ask questions and to have dialogue on the future of the district. The district also has a student board member assigned to the board to ask questions and allow communication between the students and the school board. Also, students serve on the Superintendent Advisory Board and on the District's Strategic Planning team. In addition, Mr. Manley has also been meeting with community groups through coffee houses  to assist in planning for district needs. Mr. Manley credits a "coffee house" at a local farm in 2016 as being instrumental in having dialogue and planning to expand preschool at the elementary.

The link below is the meeting held with students on September 26, 2018. The students asked many insightful questions. VIDEO Move the red cursor to hear the whole talk as Mr. Manley announces that Crestview is ranked 32nd by the State of Ohio for its quality of education. There are about 700 schools in Ohio.

Student Athlete: Danny Moore

Student-Athlete: Danny Moore

COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) - Crestview senior Danny Moore knows how to light up a room. 

He's a special talent for the Rebels, with a great personality. Danny's on track to graduate with 11 varsity letters in five different sports. Plus, he's a top-notch student, earning him the honor of our "33 Student-Athlete of the Week".

"Winning is very important to me," said Moore. "And bettering myself is even more important."

Danny is always up for a challenge. He's a versatile athlete at Crestview and State qualifier at the indoor track meet earlier this year. Danny's a big part of the relay teams and is team captain for the second straight season. 

"I think my main role on the track team is keeping everybody loose. because like I said, track is torture. when you think about it, running in circles is pretty torturous. so track is all about having fun. 

Danny's passion and positive outlook carried over to the football field, where he was an All-County safety. He helped lead Crestview to two playoff appearances in the past three seasons. 

"In football, I just poured everything I could into every play because I just wanted to win," said Moore.

"And for track, I mean it's 100%, because I want to win and I want to be one of those guys that they're like, man he was pretty crazy."

See the CR Everywhere!

The Crestview Athletic Department will paint the CR logo on your driveway or anywhere you desire. Let's show community pride and let everyone that drives through the community know where they are! We will even make road trips to those not living in the district. Remember that anywhere you are... makes it THE HOME OF THE REBELS!.  Click HERE for more information.

What will the School Bond Issue Cost me?


The short of it is about $100.00 a year on a 100,000 home. We advise everyone to check with the county auditor for specific questions. Your situation may be less or more based on the Homestead Exemption or CAUV, etc..

The total mills are 2.93 mills. Our actual cost for the building only is 2.43 mills. The state requires .05 mills additional for permanent improvement. This is required, so when repairs are needed down the road, there is money available without returning to the voters. The term "mill" is confusing and the average citizen is concerned only about dollars. Here is what is certified by the auditor and it should help make it clear what an average citizen would pay in dollars. AUDITOR ESTIMATE

If you have any questions, please call Mr. Manley, Superintendent at 330-482-5526.

Community, Unity, Opportunity: Vision 2020


On Tuesday April 24, 2018, the Crestview Local Schools presented the a report on the status of district  school buildings which was conducted by the Ohio Facilities Construction Committee. We began these discussion over a year ago and the report is now complete. The OFCC group is comprised of architects, engineers, and tradesmen who have many years of experience with construction. The report indicates that the schools need $8.900,000 of immediate replacements of the heating system, roofs, and septic and over 30 million dollars in total repair and replacement costs.

The commission will not remodel existing buildings because the cost to renovate is near the cost to build new. The commission will provide assistance for a new building; however, it will not help with current buildings. Therefore, without state help we would need to seek 8.9 million of local money for patchwork or seek  five million in local money in order to get  37 million dollars in state revenue to build a new pre K - 12 facility. We then would build a new 42 million dollar building for 5 million dollars of local money. This is the most fiscally sound recommendation for the long term good fo the Crestview Local Schools.

When do we make up a snow day?






The Crestview Local Schools this year will physically make-up days with students after 8 closures or calamity days during the 2017 - 2018 school year. We currently are at 5 closures. We are now on hours. In the past the state gave 5 snow days. In years where the winters were harsh, the state sometimes waived the extra days to make-up. This is sometimes confusing, but for this year we wanted our community to know where we are at.

If we hit 8 days of closure and have a ninth, then that ninth day would be made up the Monday after Easter in accordance with our school calendar. Our hope is that we will not even need to address make-up days. We do encourage you to have your child read on any days off. Our teachers are busy preparing lessons, reading educational articles, grading, preparing their classroom and perfecting their craft during these closure days.  Learning is an opportunity and we still need to grow our students. It is just sometimes, the weather makes it unsafe for our buses to travel.

Stay Informed: Informational Meetings Abound


There will be several meetings this fall focusing on The Future of the Crestview Local Schools.The community has an opportunity for assistance from the State of Ohio to secure sound facilities and save taxpayers millions in current & future dollars. The district can build a new facility for less than the cost of needed repairs of the current building. In fact, the state will pay for 88% of a new facility. Imagine, being offered a new home for 88% off the sale price, and this new home is cheaper than the repairs of the current home. There will be many informational meetings this fall, so come out and get the facts.

There will be two types of  meetings this fall. The first is a town hall.  A town hall will have a short PowerPoint presentation followed by a panel discussion with a question and answer session. The panel includes Eric Risinger, Architect; Jay Radman, Director of Maintenance; Jason DeCenso, Parent/Community Member;  Dr. Edward Miller, Board President; Charlene Mercure, Treasurer; and Matthew Manley, Superintendent.

The other meetings are called coffeehouses where the district comes to the community at various locations. These meetings will have informal dialogue about the future of the district. Please plan on attending a session, so that you can get accurate information.




Bond issue to be on November Ballot



July 11, 2018 Board Meeting

The Crestview Local School Board approved a resolution to put a bond issue on the November 6, 2018 ballot. This bond issue represents the Crestview Community’s share in a building project with the State of Ohio. The board vote recommends building a new Pre-k to 12 building. Crestview is eligible for 88% State funding or 38 million dollars from the State of Ohio for a new building only. The local share then would be 5.2 million dollars for new construction. The total cost of the project is 43.2 million dollars

The school board has determined this is the most fiscally responsible choice to work with the State of Ohio to build a new Pre-k to 12 building. The initiative will save the local taxpayer millions because of the assistance by the State of Ohio. The district currently needs at least 9 million dollars in emergency repairs for heating and roofing. By pursuing the project with the State, the district will NOT need a 9 million dollar emergency levy for repairs. The ballot initiative asks for 5.2 million dollars locally. The millage is yet to be certified by the County Auditor.
