Byron Public School Board Approves 2018-2019 Budget Adjustments

The Marathon Budget is proposed at $18.2 million, up about $391,000 from a year ago, or 2.19%.

The budget vote will be held May 15.

Rogers said even though district voters have demonstrated a willingness to pay for public education with their tax money by voting for bond packages, an increase in taxes collected doesn't translate to an increase in revenue. Each mill equals $1 of tax per $1,000 of assessed property value.

During a special meeting on Monday, the Troy City School Board of Education approved a four-year contract to employ Christopher Piper as the district's next superintendent, effective August 1.

"We know that if a child is not at literacy level by third grade when it comes to being able to read and write, the possibility of them graduating diminishes greatly", Andrews said. "There are so many other things we need to focus on".

Employee salaries and benefits make up the biggest part of the proposed budget, coming in at more than $89 million.

In another unanimous vote, the trustees approved a policy change to no longer accept outside transfer students at Bryan Collegiate High School, which was the only high school in the district that accepted out-of-district transfer students.

Spivey and Meggen Sande also declined to say how they would vote.

"We've asked all departments to make voluntary budget reductions at this point, and those total about $657,000", Stone said.

The Wellsville Board of Education has selected a contractor for repairs to Garfield Elementary's building, but it's going back to the drawing board to find work on the school's new heating and cooling system. The tax levy will fund 28 percent of the budget.

Harrisonville Superintendent Frank Dahman will remain on paid leave until his retirement on June 30, according to his separation agreement with the Board of Education.

That left board member Nicholas Braccio wondering, "What got us here?" to this year's larger increase.

School staff are expected to present the budget to the Moore County Board of Commissioners on May 1. Previously, he was the Junior High Principal at Jonathan Alder and Middle School Principal for Canaan Middle School in Plain City.

Decreased enrollment will bring with it a decrease in the number of teachers needed, he said.

"We reviewed our neighboring districts with regard to their contract options and most have chosen this option", Miller said.

"Every year with our community report I have suggested, for example, that we do something other than print a few copies and put them out there", he said. Beatty, Auerbach, and Rick Dumont all said that they thought the district's needs could be met with $105 million in spending. The committee prioritized qualities to include the ability to create and maintain positive school culture and instructional leadership, he said.
