Greetings Ward 3 Resident,

The verdict is in the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow which means six more weeks of winter. Looking outside today I’m not too sure if he is correct about that. Regardless Spring will be here before we know it! City government remains relatively busy with a number of things to report on below.

Have a great rest of the week!

Ward 3 Quick Update for November 23, 2015

Ward 3 Resident,

Just wanted to give you a quick update on some important items and upcoming events before the Thanksgiving Holiday.

North Royalton Ward 3 Sidewalk Survey
I have launched an online survey at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/NKGPCRQ for Ward 3 residents to give further input on the issue of sidewalks. Council has been debating this issue for over five years. All of the ward councilmen were urged to reach out to their residents in correlation with this issue after the November 4th City Council Streets Committee Meeting. City Council has been reviewing the recommendations from the year long North Royalton Alternative Transportation Study that was conducted by the Northeast Ohio Areawide Coordinating Agency. The study expands upon recommendations made from the 2014 City Master Plan that calls for the city to increase connectivity throughout parts of the city through various methods such as sidewalks, bike lanes, and etc. The study highlights some specific areas of the city to start focusing on for the future in regard to the installation of sidewalks.. The only areas in our ward that were recommend are as follows: State Rd. (Wallings Rd. to Castle Dr.) and York Rd. (York Alpha Dr, to W Wallings Rd.). Your feedback and participation are greatly appreciated. The sidewalk survey will run until January 4, 2016. Ward 3 residents who don’t have internet access can pick up a paper version of the survey at the City Council Office at 14600 State Rd. Click Here to complete the survey now.

School Board Member Dan Langshaw’s Statement on Governor John Kasich’s New School Funding Plan

After reviewing Governor John Kasich’s new school funding plan, I must say it is a lot to digest on the surface. While it is encouraging that the Governor says that no district will receive less than it did in the current 2013 fiscal year. I think it is too early to tell if this helps or hurts the North Royalton City School District one way or the other. The details are always what counts with a budget proposal. A key piece of information that we don’t have yet are the simulations by district. Also there are some questions that I believe we need to ask. Will the Governor’s new school funding plan restore the $3 million dollars in cuts he and the General Assembly made under HB 153 the last state budget to our school district? Kasich is the fourth straight governor to propose a new school funding plan, what makes his plan constitutional to comply with decade old Ohio Supreme Court case DeRolph v. State? Finally, are the revenue sources stable enough to fully pay for this new plan? As the Board Legislative Liaison, I don’t plan to wait for an answer. I have plans to meet with our State Representative Mike Dovilla and other lawmakers. In addition I am working again with Cuyahoga Heights School Board Member Reno Contipelli and North Olmsted School Board Member Terry Groden to organize another Educational Roundtable Discussion for schools in Ohio’s 24th Senate District on the state budget. We plan to bring lawmakers here to engage in direct dialogue with key stakeholders to discuss how we move forward with this new school funding plan. The work has just begun!

Statement by Superintendent Ed Vittardi on the Tragedy in Newtown, CT

Dear Parents,

The tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut compels us to not only share the sense of loss and mourning, but also reflect on the procedures and process we have in place at North Royalton City Schools in regards to school security and safety. The district has gone to great lengths to develop and practice lock down and evacuation procedures, as well as identifying specific duties and responsibilities for district personnel. We review these procedures on a regular basis, and this tragic event reminds all of us at North Royalton City Schools that we must remain diligent and steadfast in these efforts.

Please know that as daily procedure, we do lock down each of our buildings in the mornings. We have a North Royalton Police Officer in the district serving as our resource officer, additional police officer(s) in the high school and middle school parking lot, and specific security and response processes are in place.

The North Royalton City Schools will continue to be vigilant in regards to school safety and security, and joins all other school districts and communities in their thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families as well as the staff, students, and Newtown Connecticut community.


Edward A. Vittardi
