Crestwood Community Announcement

 

 

 

Welcome Back! Welcome Back

Dear Parents, Students, Guardians, and Community Members:

 

Welcome back everyone to the 2017-18 school year.   As always it has been a busy, productive summer.  Our building custodians have been doing a great job of making sure our school buildings are shiny and clean and ready for our students and staff to return. Our transportation staff have our busses ready to roll.  Our maintenance staff have been busy as well, making sure our grounds are kept and our school buildings maintained.   We have installed 10 new security cameras throughout the school district, repaired playground equipment, painted hallways, and are creating an expanded engineering lab at the middle school.  Here is a complete list of our summer maintenance projects that are completed or will be completed https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8WfQthuNdtgYUM0YUxJRjN4WjA/view?usp=sharing.

You can find other recent maintenance projects that have been completed in the district on our website at http://www.crestwoodschools.org/administrativeDepartment.aspx?aid=11.

Among other various upgrades and installs, our technology staff added three new Chromebook Carts to the Intermediate School and added a cart of touch-screen flip Chromebooks to the primary school. At the high school, two PC computer labs were upgraded, the computers were replaced in the art classroom, 60 new wireless access points were installed, and a new STEM lab has been created.  

Response by Jill Rowe Treasurer to a Recent Mailing in the District in Regards to School Finance and the Bond Issue Facts

Statement #1 – Did you know that the figures are on top of what you are currently paying.  While this statement is true.  The elementary buildings will be paid off in 2022 and your taxes will go down due to these buildings being paid off.

 

Statement #2 – Did you know your property taxes will go up due to reevaluation.  This statement is untrue.  Yes there is a reevaluation in 2018, however in the late 1970’s HB920 was passed.  This bill stated that voted millage cannot increase due to inflationary increases.  So as property is reevaluated the school district does not see an increase if the property values are increased.  The school district only sees an increase on 5.2 mills if property values are increased.  The remaining millage the school district receives does not increase.  The Ohio Department of Taxation rolls the millage back so the district does not see any increases.  For example the Permanent Improvement levy was passed in 1987 at 3.5 mills and the District collected around $420,000 on that levy.  Today the District still collects $420,000 on that levy.  Even though property rates have increased since 1987 the District is still collecting the same amount as when it was passed due to the HB920 law.

Crestwood Schools were well represented at the 2017 Wooster Music Camp held at Wooster College July 9-13. Woosterbandcamp2017

Sixteen Crestwood band students and two former retired music teachers participated in this annual camp. Band students grew in musicianship, technique, listening skills, and performance along with students from all over Ohio and several other states in one of three concert bands. Rehearsals, sectionals, recitals, and recreational activities were led by an exceptional staff of music educators with a total of nearly 750 years of teaching experience! Enrichment activities included African drumming, choir, conducting, and jazz band.

Crestwood participants are Lauren Pallato, Emma Blake, Addie Oliphant, Ethan Brady,  Jaedon Guegold, Lilly Engelhart, Ali Sabol, Raeann Quibble, Rachel Quibble, as well as the following students who earned principal/first chair positions: Quinn Mattern, Zoe Catcott, Ephraim Oliphant, Kenny Stoots, Bryce Papp, Alexis Wilson and Payton McMahon.  Dr. William Guegold was camp coordinator and Mrs. Judith Guegold was the oboe instructor.  Crestwood had the largest contingent of students attending the camp. Congrats to all of our outstanding band participants!

National Medalists

car

On March 14th the National Scholastic Art and Writing Awards announced the National Medalists. The National Medals students are competing for are Gold, Silver, or an American Vision Awards. For National Judging only the art works that received Gold Keys at the Regional Level go on to compete, this narrowed down the amount of pieces competing to 320,000 works. Out of this outstanding number of pieces Noah Maxwell's printmaking, Alternate Colors, received a National Gold Medal. This art work will be displayed in New York in June and then will travel the country for two years in a cameo show of all the Gold Medal Works. In June Noah will be awarded his Gold Medal Award at Carnegie Hall in New York City along with Ms. Scott receiving her National Gold Educator Award! This is the second year straight Crestwood has had a National Medalist student and educator. Crestwood's Art Program has received multiple state and national awards over it's time but it never stops being exciting! Congratulations to our amazing artists and all their hard work!

Community Information Night

A community information night in regards to the bond issue is planned for Monday, February  27, 2017 at 6:30 pm at the high school gym.

Crestwood Bond Issue May 2, 2017

 

Crestwood High School is nearly 60 years old and is not conducive for learning and teaching in the 21st century.  The building is inefficient to operate, is poorly organized, lacks modern security features, and is not easily handicapped accessible. Crestwood Middle School is newer but does not provide the greatest educational opportunities our students need for their futures.

 

 

Crestwood Schools gathered input from the community and worked with experts and the State of Ohio to create a plan for our future.   This bond issue would replace our aging High School and Middle School. 

 

 

If the issue passes, the State of Ohio will pay for nearly 30% of the cost of the new school.  If we don’t pass, the funds will go to another community.

 

The issue means a new High School, on the existing site, with a 7-8 grade wing and a separate 9-12 grade wing.  It will also means two gymnasiums and an auditorium.

 

The new high school will be built using local construction service companies when possible, meaning our local tax dollars will stay in our community.

In Reference to the Record Courier Article on January 6, 2017

This morning, January 6, 2017, the Record Courier published an article headlined “Crestwood classes, fair conflict”.  “School board places levies on the May ballot”.  This is a response to the many inaccuracies in this article. 

 

In the first paragraph it states that the calendar was approved.  This is inaccurate.    The Board of Education held a public hearing on the proposed calendar for the 2017-2018 school year.  This was clearly stated on the agenda.  No vote was taken on the calendar.  The Board of Education is in the process of hearing input from the community on the calendar proposal. 

 

In the second paragraph, the bond issue which will be placed on the ballot on May 2, 2017, will provide an estimated $23,000,000 for the construction of a new grades 7-12 campus at the current high school location.  It is a 4.95 mill levy which will generate $23,000,000.  This includes 0.5 mills for the long term maintenance of the facility.   The headline states that there is two levies.  The resolution clearly stated that it is one issue not two.   The State of Ohio Facilities Commission is also contributing 30% of the cost of the project.  The figure $330,124,470 is the total property valuation of the district.  This figure is used to set the millage rate for the bond issue, not the money that will be generated.  This was clearly stated in the board resolution.    A copy of the board resolution is detailed below.

Crestwood High School receives $99,976.00 grant for health education and a service learning project

Crestwood High School in Mantua, OH,  is receiving a $ 99,976 service learning grant for its Health Professions and Affinity Community Program. 

 

The grant was funded by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board.

 

The youth advisory board is a made of 30 students, ages 17-20, from the across the United States.

 

The groups aims to annually implement $5 million-a-year to service learning initiatives that address issues that are important  to youth and its communities.

 

Crestwood’s HPAC program will address health and health education in the community through the acquisition of an aqua-ponic greenhouse at the high school.

 

The greenhouse uses a water system that recycles the nutrient rich water from a fish tank in order to grow plants and, in turn, uses the plant’s resources to help grow the fish. 

 

Food grown in the greenhouse will be donated to community members in need, with any excess being sold to support and sustain the Coalition for Community Care, the local food pantry.

FAQ: The Bond Issue on May 2nd

What are we voting on?

What Crestwood voters will see on May 2nd is an issue for 4.45 mills for a 7-12 building and .5 mills Permanent Improvement measure. 

 

How was the cost of a new building determined if you don't know what it will look like?

The State of Ohio has a formula used to determine the budget needed for a school building based on current enrollments, future projections, current available space, total square footage needed, and cost of that square footage. It was through this calculation that Crestwood was given a budget number by the state by which the Bond issue was created. As part of using their formula and projections, Crestwood is able to receive co-funding from the state for the new building. This co-funding would not have been available to Crestwood had the district decided to just renovate the two buildings. We'll talk more about that below.

 

How can we be sure that the new school can be built for the stated cost? What if it's more?

The new school will be built with a Construction Manager at Risk overseeing the project. This method is preferred because it places a construction professional in charge of the project. The construction manager agrees to a Guaranteed Maximum Price before the start of the design process and cannot exceed that number. The Construction Manager at Risk is responsible for all aspects of the construction process, freeing the district administration from day-to-day construction decisions and allowing them to focus on their responsibilities to the district.

Crestwood Bond Issue August 8, 2017

Crestwood High School is nearly 60 years old and is not conducive for learning and teaching in the 21st century.  The building is inefficient to operate, is poorly organized, lacks modern security features, and is not easily handicapped accessible. Crestwood Middle School is newer but does not provide the greatest educational opportunities our students need for their futures.

 

Crestwood Schools gathered input from the community and worked with experts and the State of Ohio to create a plan for our future.   This bond issue would replace our aging High School and Middle School.

 

If the issue passes, the State of Ohio will pay for 29% of the cost of the new school.  If we don’t pass, the funds will go to another community.

 

The issue means a new High School, on the existing site, with a 7-8 grade wing and a separate 9-12 grade wing.  It will also means two gymnasiums and an auditorium.

 

The new high school will be built using local construction service companies when possible, meaning our local tax dollars will stay in our community.

 

Under the plan, the existing middle school will be repurposed for board offices and will be available to students for gym practice space and to our residents for community uses.

Calamity Day Information

Dear Parent/Guardians,

 

Living in Northeastern Ohio presents our school district with many challenges dealing with adverse weather. Often, severe conditions at 6:00am are much improved one or two hours later making it safe to continue school activities. With this being said - our school district may use the option of a two-hour delay start to the school day for inclement weather or other emergencies.  By using the “two-hour delay”, we may be able to have school and avoid using as many calamity days or making up any school days.
 
 
The need to close or delay the opening of our schools for the safety of students and staff is a decision we take very seriously. We understand students are better served both academically and socially by being in school, however, student and staff welfare is our top priority.

Board Appoints New Member To Fill Vacancy

At the June 1 special board meeting, the board unanimously approved Mitch Wilson’s appointment to fill the short-term vacancy left by former member Debra Soltisz, following her resignation last month.  Seven people applied for the short-term post and six, including Wilson, were interviewed at a special board meeting held June 1st .  

Letter from David Toth, Superintendent September 15, 2017

 

Dear Community Members, Parents, Guardians, and Crestwood Staff Members,

 

At the board meeting on Tuesday, September 12, during an open discussion, the possibility of re-configuring the school district by moving sixth grade students to the elementary campus and relocating seventh and eighth grade students to the current high school was discussed.  The Board of Education has directed me to look at this option.  This option is being discussed by the Board of Education for financial reasons as well as enrollment decline in the district.

 

 

Financially, the State Legislature has reduced our revenue over the next two years by a total of $543,000.  This was passed by the legislature on June 30, 2017.    Second, the Crestwood Local School District is on what is called a state guaranteed funding model.    Out of the over 600 school districts in the State of Ohio, the Crestwood Local School District is in the top one percent of districts receiving state guaranteed funds.  We receive roughly 4.5 million dollars in guaranteed state funds.  These funds can be reduced at any time the State Legislature revises its budget.  This occurs every two years.   Historically, these funds have been reduced or are in jeopardy to be reduced.   The school district’s five year financial forecast in October will detail that the cash balance for the school district will be in deficit in the year 2021.  If there are any more reductions to our state guaranteed money, this will exacerbate that deficit.

Crestwood Bond Issue Talking Points

Crestwood Bond Issue Talking Points

Crestwood High School is nearly 60 years old and was not built for learning and teaching in the 21st century.  The building is inefficient to operate, is poorly organized, and is not handicapped accessible.

Crestwood Schools gathered input from the community and worked with experts and the State of Ohio to create a plan for our future.   This bond issue would replace our aging High School and Middle School.

 

If the issue passes, the State of Ohio will pay for nearly 30% of the cost of the new school.  If we don’t pass, the funds will go to another community.
