       The board of the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District will soon be deciding what type of levy to place on the May ballot, Guy Parmigian, district superintendent, says in his state of the district report.

        Although the reduction in valuation of the Davis-Besse Nuclear Power Plant will result in the Benton-Carroll-Salem School District losing about $4.6 million annually in property taxes, there will be no cuts in staffing or student programs other than through attrition heading into the 2018-19 school year, he writes.

       If voters in the Eastwood school district in May approve the replacement of a permanent improvement levy the additional revenues will be used to pay for improvements at the high school and middle school, upgrades to the baseball and softball fields, refurbishing facilities at Freedom Field and other renovations.

        The Eastwood school board has approved a resolution to replace the levy – the first step in putting the issue on the ballot.

        Oregon City Schools Business Manager Dean Sandwisch praised partnerships for new advancements within the district at the Eastern Maumee Chamber of Commerce-hosted State of the Communities address last week.

        “Oregon City Schools is enjoying a pretty nice time right now and I think the reason for that is because we are really working within our strategic plan. We’re bringing in partners that are really helping us to accomplish that,” Oregon City School Business Manager Dean Sandwisch said.

        If you haven’t noticed, the footprint at the corner of Lemoyne and Woodville roads looks a lot different now.

        Discussing the new Northwood Schools pre-K through grade 12 was a “no-brainer” for Superintendent Greg Clark at the Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce’s State of the Communities address at St. Charles Mercy Hospital last week.

        Cardinal Stritch President Father Eric Schild says “Big Brother” is alive and well at his school, and it’s not an issue.

        “What’s great, it’s very much Big Brother, and I am completely good with that because not all of our parents are being good mothers or fathers when it comes to internet usage. But, if we see that they (students) go to some place that they are not supposed to be, a little blurb comes up that says, ‘Your school is watching you,’” Father Schild said during his address to Eastern Maumee Bay Chamber of Commerce guests at the State of the Communities breakfast at St. Charles Mercy Hospital last week.
