The Oakwood School District is restructuring its Facilities Advisory Committee to broaden its scope and include new members. Previously the Facilities Committee met on an “as-needed” basis. The Oakwood High School auditorium stage renovation was the first project receiving the committee’s input, followed by the school additions and renovations in 2001. The group met as recently as last spring to assist in the selection of architects and the design for the roof upgrade and stadium bleacher projects.
“We’re hoping to work with twelve to fifteen Oakwood residents who have expertise in building management, maintenance and preservation of historic buildings,” said Superintendent Dr. Mary Jo Scalzo.
The committee will meet on a regular bi-monthly schedule to provide ongoing input concerning issues related to facility maintenance, planning and usage. Previous members of the committee will be asked to continue their participation along with new members. Volunteers will be asked for multi-year commitments.
Interested community members should contact Treasurer Kevin Philo at the Board of Education Office at 20 Rubicon Road, Dayton, Ohio 45409, by phone at 297-5332, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 31. Please include background information, resume, and/or other information that would be helpful in the membership selection process.
The Oakwood Board of Education is committed to staying in touch with our citizens. As part of that goal, the school district holds two neighborhood meetings per month. Neighborhood meetings are a unique chance for residents to meet in a comfortable setting with Dr. Mary Jo Scalzo, Superintendent of the Oakwood Schools, and board members. Dr. Scalzo usually asks one question for community input, but the focus of the rest of the meeting is an open discussion about our schools.
We are looking for Oakwood citizens to host neighborhood meetings in their homes. There is minimal work involved. Your task is to invite your friends and neighbors to attend the meeting and put out a plate of cookies. We do the rest!
The available meeting dates and times follow. If you are interested in one of these dates, please contact Sandy Maresh at the Oakwood Board of Education Office (937) 297-5332.
