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.
