When will Margaretta Schools build new facilities for students?
Based on finances, it's unlikely any new public school building in Castalia or Margaretta Township will pop up in the near future.
Margaretta Schools superintendent Ed Kurt provided the following response:
We have a facility committee that is working to address facility issues, and we will work with the community to decide on the best solutions moving forward.
If we would build new, we could receive 33 percent funding from the state for new construction. Just renovating and addressing safety and security issues of our high school and middle school would take additional funding. We will continue to listen to the community and address this important issue.
To add your input, you can:
• Attend regularly scheduled board meetings, which occur at 7 p.m. during the third Monday of each month. The board meets at 305 S. Washington St. in Castalia.
