Greenon invites community to tour local schools for building ideas


Greenon school officials are inviting residents to come with them and tour local school buildings that are similar to what the district expects to build for themselves in the next few years.

A tour of Milton-Union Local Schools in West Milton and Ridgemont Local Schools in Mt. Victory will take place on June 29. Residents are welcomed to meet at Indian Valley School at 8:15 a.m. People who plan to attend should expect drive their personal vehicles or carpool.

Voters approved by about 500 votes a $36 million bond issue May 2 to build a new pre-k through 12th grade school. The 6.98-mill bond will cost a taxpayer who owns a $100,000 property in the district a little more than $20 a month. The state will pick up $18 million of the costs through the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission.

Greenon Superintendent Brad Silvus said he hopes the community will join school staff on the tour.

“We are interested in having community, parents, staff and students take a look at other school buildings to see what designs are being used, what they like about these facilities, and ultimately what we want in our buildings,” he said. “We are offering for anyone to attend as this new facility belongs to our community and, thus, we want feedback and input from as many people as possible.”

He said on the tours they will be looking at a variety of different things and will try to figure out what will be best for their district.

“We hope to visit different facilities to get ideas on layouts, design and what newer learning spaces can look like, so that when we begin our visioning process with the state later in the summer, we can have an idea of what we want for our facility,” Silvus said.

Anyone with questions or wants more information is asked to call 937-864-1202.
