ROSSFORD - The district's master plan is moving forward.
At a special meeting Monday, board members voted unanimously to move forward with a contract with Collaborative-TMP Architects, a firm based in Toledo and Bloomfield, Mich., which specializes in architectural design services for Ohio schools.
Among their projects, Collaborative provided design work, as well as levy campaign assistance, for the Penta Career Center in Perrysburg Township.
Master Plan Steering Committee Chair John Appt indicated that they would be discussing several options, including the possibility of new buildings, renovations, and a mix of the two concepts, with Collaborative.
He was hopeful that a contract could be in place by March 23, when a brainstorming session is planned.
The committee, created to ascertain the Rossford district's building needs, is slated to have a proposal to the board of education this summer. Depending on the proposal, a levy may be placed on November's ballot.
In other business, the board in a 3-2 vote approved a motion tabling a vote on a revised board policy concerning the employment and appointment of personnel. Member Jackie Brown asked that the board wait to consider the policy, as it was tied to several others. However board President Dawn Burk expressed concern that tabling the motion would necessitate that another meeting be held before the measure could be approved.
Burk emphasized the need for the board to stay "on track."
Burk and board vice president Ken Sutter voted against the motion.
