I wanted to officially give the good news on behalf of the Board of Education…the Ohio Department of Education has released our district from Fiscal Caution effective immediately.
As you know, the decisions that have been made over the last three years have been tough, but necessary, to get us out of deficit spending. Through the ODE Performance Audit, we examined every aspect of our operation and made it as efficient as possible.
While we are out of the watchful eye of the ODE, that doesn’t mean we will revert back to the spending practices that got us into this situation. However, this doesn’t mean that we will not spend money when necessary. It just means that we will continue to look at each purchase carefully and make sure it aligns to our mission and vision and can help us achieve it.
This was a team effort and we appreciate your support.
