BV Bond Issue Passes by Two Votes

BV Families - I wanted to update you regarding todays Bond "Recount" results. I am thrilled to announce that BV prevailed by two votes (3312 "for", 3310 "against").

I view the passage of this issue as a real "game changer" for our district as we will be able to provide the 21st Century Learning Environments our elementary age students truly deserve. Looking forward to what lies ahead and Go Barons!

Elementary School Bond Issue Update

Buckeye Valley Families,

I wanted to let you know that I was informed that this morning by the Delaware County Board of Elections that, although still not “certified”, the recent vote regarding the elementary school bond issue has resulted in a tie (3312 votes both “for” and “against”).  I am pleased that we made up 19 votes but sure wish it could have been a few more.  What’s next?  After the vote is certified next week, an automatic recount will be initiated.  My sincere hope is that at the conclusion of the recount the “For” votes will prevail and the district can begin to focus its efforts on the design and construction of new elementary facilities for our students.   Continued positive thoughts are appreciated! 

Elementary Bond Issue Update

Buckeye Valley Community -  I wanted to share that the Elementary Bond Issue that was voted on yesterday appears to not have passed by a very slim margin (19 votes).  It is my understanding that “provisional” ballots have not been factored in, as well as any “absentee” ballots that arrived late but were post-marked correctly.  Ultimately, depending on the final for/against margin a “recount” is a possibility so “official” results may not be known for several weeks.    

If the narrow defeat stands, to say the results are disheartening would be an understatement.  I felt extremely good about the process used to determine the ballot issue, the merits of the issue itself, as well as the efforts by the campaign committee to get the word out.  Many BV citizens took part in the facilities process and your efforts have not gone unnoticed.  Certainly, if the results stand, the need for improved elementary facilities has not gone away and I will continue working diligently with the Board of Education to examine possible options for what might come next.    I ask that the BV community stay positive as the process to determine the “official” results plays itself out.  Stay focused on doing great things for our students and Go Barons! 

 

Sincerely,

Andrew Miller, Superintendent

Elementary Bond Issue Update

BV Parents and Families,

I wanted to share that the Elementary Bond Issue that was voted on yesterday did not pass by an overwhelming margin (75% against).  Thank you to those that voted as it provides the district feedback, whether it was the outcome we had hoped for or not.  The community has spoken and obviously the renovation of the three elementary buildings was not the option that they wanted.  That being said, the issue of addressing/upgrading the elementary facilities has not gone away.  I wanted to share that I will be working diligently with the Board of Education to examine possible avenues to help engage the community to get feedback that will help to provide an elementary facilities option that can be supported by the majority.  Specifics regarding how you can get involved in the community engagement process will be out in the very near future.  This will be tough work, but the time for the community to pull together for the benefit of our students starts today!  Go Barons! 

Sincerely,

Andrew Miller, Superintendent
