As another school year closes, I am honored and humbled to continue to serve as your Superintendent.
At beginning of the 2017-2018 school year, we will be reopening Westwood to educate our second and third grade scholars. We came to this decision because of an increased enrollment in our lower grades, resulting in higher class sizes.
Due to our building space restrictions, we are unable to add additional classrooms at Eastwood and John Dewey. The reopening of Westwood will allow us to expand our Pre-K at John Dewey, add additional classrooms in grades K-5 and allow exploratory teachers to have their own rooms. Principal Rafiq Vaughn will move to Westwood and lead this transition. This is a temporary solution until our new Pre-K project is complete.
On May 24, 2017, the Board of Education approved the District’s request to move forward in collaboration to with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission to build a new elementary building at our Randallwood site.
Over the next few months, we will begin the process of designing our new building, demolishing Randallwood and preparing the site to begin building the facility. As part of the building process we will host a series of community meetings to solicit your input.
This is an exciting time to be a Tiger. "One Team, One Vision One Goal” will continue to move us forward!
