After two unsuccessful attempts, the North Ridgeville Board of Education has taken steps to seek a bond issue in November to fund the construction of a new high school and maintenance/transportation building. The district’s determination to provide new facilities stems from the invaluable feedback received from the community and the pressing need to address overcrowding in our high school building.
The decision to focus solely on the construction of a new high school follows two previous bond attempts, both of which fell short of the necessary votes for approval. The most recent attempt, narrowly defeated by a margin of 23 votes, highlighted the community’s strong interest in improving the education infrastructure.
“We have carefully considered the feedback and concerns expressed by our community members,” said Superintendent Roxann Ramsey-Caserio. “While we recognize the importance of addressing overcrowding in our elementary school and we would love to update both the elementary and high school facilities, the community has been clear that this is not an option right now. As such, we feel this is the best plan at this point in time.”
The proposed bond issue, slated for the November ballot, will provide the necessary funding to construct a high school that will enhance the educational experience for students and better prepare them for future success. The new facility will offer improved classroom spaces, advanced technology integration, and enhanced extracurricular and athletic facilities.
It is important to note that even with the successful passage of the bond issue, North Ridgeville City Schools will continue to actively seek solutions to address the overcrowding issues at Liberty Elementary. The district remains committed to providing the best possible learning environment for all students, and further plans will be formulated to ensure that elementary overcrowding concerns are adequately addressed in the near future.
Superintendent Roxann Ramsey-Caserio emphasized the district’s gratitude for the community’s engagement and support throughout this process. “We are immensely grateful to our community for their involvement and feedback. Together, we will strive to provide our students with the high-quality education they deserve.”
