ROSSFORD, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Rossford City Schools asked
for the public's input on 17 different ways to update the district's outdated
buildings, and now they are revealing the results of their study.
Five master plan options
have been chosen by the public, one of them includes closing Glenwood
The option that received
the fewest votes called for Glenwood to close, and a new 300,000-square-foot
campus for grades pre-Kindergarten through high school would be built.
"I think it would help,
because a lot of [the buildings] are really, really old," said resident Tina
Members of the Rossford
Schools steering committee spent an hour calculating the results of the public
survey. The school plan that received the most votes included renovating Eagle
Point Elementary, a combination of new construction and renovations for the
downtown campus for grades 6-8, Indian Hills Elementary would be brand new, but
Glenwood would still close.
"People will see on these
five options that it's a range, and they'll be able to pick which one is the
best one and the way they like," said John Appt, chairman of the steering
Each plan is estimated to
cost about $65 million. A levy could be placed on the November ballot to
finance the projects.
"If it helps the kids,
yes," said Glass. "If it's just wasted money, no. That's why they need to have
a plan and stick with it and show everybody before they decide what they're
going to do."
There will be a public
forum later this month, where people will be able to look at drawings and give
their input on the options.
