Items of Interest
Financial Work Session Information:
The Lorain County auditor submitted a notice of appeal to the Ohio Board of Tax Appeals regarding the settlement between the Ohio Tax Commissioner and NEXUS. It is the opinion of the Fulton County Auditor that if the NEXUS settlement was appealed, it would likely delay any settlement on ROVER.
There is a current need for more operating funds as the district was in deficit spending last year, and continues throughout the forecast. Current projections show the final cash balance positive for the last time in 2024.
Further discussions about the amount needed will continue at the next financial work session.
Over the summer Gov. Mike DeWine signed into law House Bill (HB) 583, which extends the current temporary flexibility for school districts regarding the educational requirements of substitute teachers until June 30, 2024.
CCP (Update from Shawn Grime, High School Guidance Counselor):
Last year, for Fall/Summer terms we spent $76,683.83. This year for Fall/Summer terms we are on track to spend $88,652.16. That is an increase of $11,968.33. Given the increase of participation and classes taken this year, he estimates after spring term that we may be looking at an overall increase of $20,000+ from last year with a total expense over $150,000 for the year (this would be our most expensive year for CCP).
Archbold Area Local Schools was awarded $90,000 through the School Bus Purchase Program for the purchase of two buses. Our first order was placed last winter and we expect the bus after the new year. Approval for bids in the agenda would be for the second of the two purchases.
337 Park St. Update:
The house on the corner of Park St. and Bluestreak Drive has been removed. We are now working on plans to clear the rest of the property and fill with top soil.
Recently the district was informed we will be receiving an Ohio K-12 School Safety Program Grant in the amount of $128,296 for the purchase of security cameras at all three buildings.
