Call to Order/Pledge of Allegiance
Open Committee Positions
Superintendent's Report (Mr. Scott)
Avon Lake Schools has 3 emergency levys. They are all fixed levys. This is better for the district. We are also a capped district and each year we get about 2 million from the state. This is really a renewal levy. Over 80 percent of our funding comes from our own tax payers. Avon Lake won’t be getting additional monies from the state in essence because we are a thriving community. There are about 525 staff members in Avon Lake Schools. Avon Lake High School is the biggest it has been ever. Total students is about 3912. Who wants to be on the sign committee? Testing was brought up. Can we push the test dates back please? There is a window that the district is able to do the testing and they “can look at it.” Another question was brought up to at least push it back until after Labor Day. There was a clarification that MAPS tests are not the only parameter to determine advanced classes. Classes are often hot and nothing is perfect. Some of these buildings would need very major costly work to improve things. It is not that easy. Avon is behind on the calendar. The heat factor is truly up to chance. Pushing back the date sounds great although parents who have high schoolers do not like the idea of going later.
