Let us describe our situation. We have three elementary schools and one high school building in the Eastern Local District. The buildings are in continual need of repair and are too smal to house the State Mandated Programs.
We have the opportunity of a life time through the State Building Fund. Through this fund, we are eligible for a new K-8 building and repair and up grade of the existing high school at a minimal cost to the district tax payers. The State will provide $7,136,000 and the local tax will provide $1,614,000 for a total expense of $8,750,000. This will mean a 4.4 - 5 mill increase in local tax.
As an interested member of our school community, your support and input is needed in order to put together a plan which will guarantee the passage of the March 19th levy. Please attend the next planning meeting on January 4th at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Library.
