District Announces Bond Issue for March 2020 Ballot

The Perry Local School District announced at the November Board of Education Meeting its plan for a bond issue on the March 17, 2020, ballot. The bond will address the district’s aging elementary, middle and high school buildings. The bond issue, if passed, will fund phase 1 of the project which will construct four new elementary schools.  This phase is part of the White Option (click here) for the Building Advisory Committee worked through as options.  Through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission (OFCC), Perry Local would receive an additional $80 million to construct a new middle school and to renovate Perry High School. This second phase would come at no additional cost to the community. The Perry Local School District decided to move forward with this new facilities plan because of its eligibility to receive state-contributed funds. The plan was based on recommendations from the Building Advisory Committee, which met 12 times to discuss the issue, as well as input from the community. The district held four focus groups and received more than 1,300 online survey responses.

Bahamas Water Relief Initiative

Perry Local Schools, lead by PHS Student Council has been taking on an initiative to bring clean water to the Bahamas.  The island has seen its water supply depleted by the damage done by Hurricane Dorian.  The District is assisting Bahama Native and area Pastor, Cedric Beckles in conjunction with other entities to deliver clean water to the people of the Bahamas.  Due to the high demand, a resource we take for granted day to day has come at a premium for the island especially in the immediate area.  The District has secured nearly 8,100 gallons of water from Sand Rock and over 400 additional empty containers have been donated.  There have been many other donations including the Major Sponsorship of Aqua Ohio.  Most of the expense lies in the logistics of getting the water to the island.  Please help us Friday Night in supporting this wonderful cause and bringing hope to the Bahama Islands.
