District Permanent Improvement Expenditures
The following legal opinion was provided to the district by Bricker & Eckler regarding the district's use of permanent improvement funds.
 

Ohio Department of Education guidelines for expenditures from the capital and maintenance set-aside fund (created by Ohio Revised Code 3315.18) indicate the proceeds of a permanent improvement levy may be used to pay for wages and benefits paid to the District’s own employees when such employees are engaged in activity which would constitute the construction, acquisition or installation of a permanent improvement.  Such expenditures may be treated as an acceptable costs of acquiring, replacing or enhancing a permanent improvement.  Those guidelines read as follows:

 

Ohio Administrative Code 3301-92-02 Capital improvement and maintenance fund.
 

*     *     *

 

(G) Acceptable costs for acquisitions, replacements and enhancements of permanent improvements include, but are not limited to: Acquisition price; direct materials, labor and overhead incurred during a qualifying project; professional fees necessary to complete a qualifying project; site preparation; demolition or removal of any existing assets; freight and handling; and principal included as part of the cost of a capital lease. Acquisitions, replacements and enhancements of permanent improvements does not include debt service on a long-term debt whose proceeds were used for capital improvements and maintenance.”  (Emphasis added.)

 

In light of the above, these kinds of labor expenses from the District’s employees are proper expenditures from the proceeds of a tax levy for permanent improvements.

 


Concerns for Netflix series, "13 Reasons Why"

Thirteen Reasons Why

The trending Netflix series 13 Reasons Why, based on a young adult novel of the same name, is raising awareness and concerns of how we portray and deal with the real life issue of suicide, bullying, and sexual assault. The series revolves around 17-year-old Hannah Baker, who takes her own life and leaves behind audio recordings for 13 people who she says in some way were part of why she killed herself. Each tape recounts painful events in which one or more of the 13 individuals played a role.

We think it’s vital that parents are equipped with knowledge and resources when deciding whether or not their child should watch this series.
