Tiffin City Schools' top administrator says he will ask Tiffin City Board of Education to approve placement of a levy renewal on the November ballot.
Superintendent Donald Coletta said the district has a 1-mill permanent improvement levy up for renewal in the 2012 calendar year. The board is to face the decision about whether to approach voters during its meeting next month.
Coletta said the five-year levy first was approved in 1977.
The funds generated from the levy are used to pay for expenses with a lifespan of more than five years and are not used for day-to-day operations of the district.
Board member Mike Klepper said the district's permanent improvement fund contains $388,000. It is a critical levy for the district, Coletta said.
In other business, Tom Anway, director of operations, reported on the future of Clinton and Lincoln elementary schools. He said officials are putting together a lease for Lincoln. After the meeting, he declined to identify the interested party.
Anway told the board of education that no one has come forward and shown interest in purchasing or leasing Clinton. He said he thinks he would suggest the board look at potentially having an auction in the fall.
The district is open to offers, he said.
In other business, the board heard an update about Charting The Course.
Coletta said the district will merge its Charting The Course plans with its continuous improvement plan next year. Community members were involved in Charting The Course, and the continuous improvement plan was put together by staff, he said.
"We want to get more engagement out of our community," he said.
