Local News

OAKWOOD, Ohio (WDTN) — The Oakwood Board of Education is working to place to measures on the ballot in May 2019.

Board of Education members took the first of two steps to place an operating levy and a bond on the ballot. The second of two required votes is scheduled for the board’s meeting on January 14th.

According to the Board of Education, the ballot issue would include a 4.99-mill operating levy. It would also have a bond for approximately 2.7 mills.

According to board officials, the 4.99-mill operating levy would generate money to cover the district’s day-to-day expenses. The board last asked for additional funds in 2016.

The 2.7-mill bond would generate $18 million. Board officials say those funds would be used to pay for Phase 1 of the district’s master facilities plan, which would preserve current buildings.

According to board officials, Phase 1 is part of a four-part plan which focuses on infrastructure at the junior high and high school. It also targets infrastructure improvements at Harman and Smith schools.
