The board voted to renew the levy at the present rate on the November ballot. If the voters pass the levy, it will run from 2025 to 2030.

Student Elayna Richardson was recognized as she placed 8th in the 200-meter dash in the Indoor State Track and Field Championships and also qualified for the OHSAA State Track Meet in the 400-meter dash a few weeks ago.
