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 Middle School is newer but does not provide the latest 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 mean 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.
