North Royalton Board of Education Schedules Special Meetings To Place Bond/Permanent Improvement Issue on November 8, 2016 Ballot
The North Royalton Board of Education had two meetings this past week on June 6 and June 9 to discuss results of the recent community survey where residents were asked to express their comments regarding the proposed facilities plan. The Community Engagement Task Force has recommended to the board a plan to address the educational and facility needs of all students and provide opportunities and classes required for student-centered learning. The plan includes building one new elementary school to house all PK-4 students; renovating the middle school; and demolishing/rebuilding all portions of the high school built prior to 1976 and renovating portions that were built after 1976. For the past year, the residents of North Royalton, as well as staff, have been engaged in this issue through surveys, coffee discussions, public meetings, and many other forums.
The board scheduled two special meetings. On June 15, board members will consider approving a resolution that will be submitted to the county fiscal officer for millage certification. Based on the information received back from the county on millage, on June 21, board members will consider proceeding with the submission of a bond issue and permanent improvement to the electors on the November 8, 2016 ballot.
