Board Update









Good Evening:

If you haven’t had the chance yet please check out my new and improved website at www.danlangshaw.com. Communication with constituents is very important to me and on my website you will see that I have centralized a lot of useful information about me, the school board, and district. You can also like me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter too.


The School Board met on December 6th for a Board Work Session. Board got department updates from Curriculum Director Bruce Bradley and Personnel Director Greg Gurka on the various things their individual departments are doing in the district. The board got an update on next year’s school calendar. The board had more discussion about doing a pilot program for All Day Kindergarten in the school district. Students would be selected by lottery process and the district would charge an estimated tuition of about $2,500-$2,700. On Monday’s Regular Board Agenda there will be a formal resolution to start All Day Kindergarten for the 2012-2013 school year. Board got an update on the school district’s enrollment and demographics. The Board also had discussion about the state of Ohio’s new accountability and ranking system that will be in place for school district’s next year. Board had discussion about the impact of HB 153 and how some SB5 items were snuck into the state budget that mirror SB5 that school district will have to deal with. Treasurer McIntosh gave the Board a summary on the final Stadium Renovation Project cost and figures. The stadium project finished $422,800 under budget. Total cost of the project was $4,657,228. The Board also discussed plans for Board Development and setting Board Goals for 2012. Board had discussion about board compensation and setting a board policy for board members to rotate serving as the CVCC Representative. There was also discussion about the two CVCC Appointments, Committee Assignments, and Board Officers for 2012. The Board reviewed the December Regular Meeting agenda items, and such other matters that came before the Board.


Here is a total breakdown of expenses and revenues for the Stadium Project if you are interested:





On December 9th I had the opportunity to attend the IT for Girls Luncheon at the Cuyahoga Valley Career Center.
