Board member Corine Doll supported the bond approach selected by the board, calling it "straight forward" to explain to voters.
The board will ask voters to support a plan to add on to the L.T. Ball school off North Hyatt Street to provide new classrooms for students through the fifth grade. The students now attend L.T. Ball Intermediate, Broadway Elementary and Nevin Coppock Elementary. The two elementary buildings would be closed.

The district is working with the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission on the plan and has been approved for its Expedited Local Partnership Program. Under the ELPP, the district could build and then receive reimbursement for a portion of the cost when its number for state funding comes up for payment.
School leaders will discuss that program and the proposed project at a community engagement meeting scheduled Tuesday, Jan. 15, at 6:30 p.m. at L.T. Ball school on North Hyatt Street.
