Crestwood Bond Issue Bond Issue Header
Superintendent Community Announcement for 9-8-17

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 Local Schools in collaboration with local community organizations invites the Crestwood community to an evening of family fun.

“Patriot 500 Racing”(patriot500racing.com) will be there!!! It’s a STEM lab that is making visual connections between racing technology and performance; hands-on demonstrations of mathematics and physics within real-world applications. There will be a demonstration, hand-on opportunities to learn about racing technology and Q&A about the Patriot 500. This is a great example of 21st century learning and what an opportunity for our community!

 

If you would like to participate in “Stuff the Bus”  American Legion Post 193 will be collecting school supplies and non-perishable items for our local food pantry.

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.
