Oregon schools to have new time schedules
Written by Kelly Kaczala

The Oregon school board approved new school day starting and ending times for next year to make transportation operation more cost-effective.

The district's recent performance audit had identified transportation costs as being inefficient.

The district has been operating under a “two-tiered” bus schedule for many years, according to Superintendent Mike Zalar. “Basically, this means our various school buildings operate under essentially two different start and ending times,” said Zalar. “The high school and middle schools comprise one tier and the elementary schools make up the other tier. By organizing our district geographically and increasing the bus routing to “three-tiers” we can reduce the number of buses needed to transport  all of our students to school. In addition, we will need fewer buses in our fleet.”

A resolution asking the Ohio Department of Transportation to conduct a study of vehicular traffic along State Route 51 near the intersection of Millbury Road will be on the agenda of the June 16 meeting of the Lake Township trustees.

Melanie Bowen, who chairs the board of trustees, said the resolution will ask ODOT to conduct a survey of traffic speed and possibly the volume near the intersection.

And despite hearing representatives from ODOT Tuesday say the intersection doesn’t meet criteria for installing a traffic signal, the trustees say they’re not giving up on having a traffic light at the corner.

The funding is mostly from West Coast private investors, said Cheryl Hardy of Hardy Communications, a Levis Commons company which provides public relations and media support for Dillin Corporation.

“He promised that stretch of land right there will be the finest waterfront anywhere in the Midwest,” Hardy said. “They are going to start work on the park. Landscaping was supposed to start going in this fall or this spring.
