State help to build new schools topic in West Carrollton tonight

The process of seeking state help for getting new school buildings in West Carrollton is set to be discussed tonight.

The West Carrollton City School District Board of Education will talk about the Ohio School Facilities Commission’s process for assisting local districts when it meets at 6 p.m., according to its agenda.

The school board this spring approved seeking the state’s aid in rebuilding the district’s schools, many of which are more than 50 years old. The district includes parts of Miami Twp. and Moraine.

The process, expected to take about two years, will involve the state inspecting the district’s seven schools, issuing status reports and performing enrollment projections, administrators have said.

New Superintendent Andrea Townsend said in August district officials planned to meet with the state facilities commission as part of mapping out the process.


The board of education meeting is scheduled to occur in the Guiler Auditorium at West Carrollton High School, 5833 Student St.
