COVENTRY TWP. The heat is back on at Coventry Elementary School.
During the Dec. 13 board meeting, the board heard an update on the heating situation, which closed school for one day. Superintendent Lisa Blough said while some of the school had heat, the majority of the building was without it.
She said some of the rooms were below 50 degrees.
Within a day, Blough said the K Company came out and repaired 75 percent of the heating units and the remaining few were to be fixed the next day.
In other business Dec. 13, the board:
- Heard a presentation from Mindee Johnson, a GAAP auditor, who presented the GAAP financial statements for the district.
- Heard from Coventry Treasurer Matthew Muccio about an update to the five-year-forecast following the passage of the renewal. He said the proposed forecast will go to the Financial Planning and Supervision Commission for approval. He said the finances look strong into fiscal year 2021 when another renewal levy will be up.
- Heard from board member Dave Andrews, whose term is up on the board. He thanked the teachers and administrators for making Coventry Schools what they are.
- Heard from board member Robert Wohlgamuth, whose term is also up on the board. He said it is an emotional time, but he enjoyed working with everyone. The other board members thanked Wohlgamuth and Andrews for their service on the board.
- Accepted a donation from Copley-Fairlawn Schools of a laptop cart that it is no longer using.
- Heard from former board member Bill Breitenbach who said it is a sad day in Coventry to lose 44 years of service on the school board. He wished Wohlgamuth and Andrews the best.
The next Coventry Local Schools board meeting will be at 6 p.m. Jan. 10 at the Lakeview Administrative Offices.
