Graytown school to be offered for sale
The Benton-Carroll-Salem school board has given superintendent Guy Parmigian authorization to begin the process for selling the Graytown Elementary School building.

Board members voted last week to give Parmigian permission to sell the building.

The school board voted in December 2011 to close Carroll and Graytown elementary schools as part of a cost-cutting plan.

Benton Township trustees have had informal discussions with the school board about purchasing the building but as of last week hadn’t made any decision to proceed or not, said Gary Gregg, who chairs the board of trustees.

Committee assignment
State Senator Randy Gardner (R- Bowling Green) has been tapped by Senate President Keith Faber to serve as chairman of the newly-created Finance Subcommittee on Education.

The subcommittee will have responsibility for college and university budget issues as well as elementary and secondary funding.

Gardner’s district includes Erie, Ottawa, Wood and parts of Fulton and Lucas counties.

Gardner was also appointed to the Education Committee.
