February Board of Education Meeting

February Board of Education Meeting
Posted on 02/22/2023

The Indian Lake Board of Education approved the calendar for the 2023-24 school year and updated the district’s safety plan to include the armed response team during their regular February meeting. 

As Superintendent Dr. Rob Underwood explains, the calendar is a bit different than the typical Indian Lake School calendar. (see below)

“We’re going to start a couple weeks later in August to allow for the HVAC project at the high school. It’s also going to allow us to try a Friday night graduation and that will be held on May 24th of 2024.”

The board also finalized the armed staff plan, after many months of waiting for approval from the state. The board entered into executive session and approved the specific staff who are permitted to be armed in the school. That information will be submitted to the state, but the list is not a public record. 

Back in open session, the board also approved an agreement with the Indian Lake Hotel Management group that is bringing a Cobblestone Inn to Russells Point. The board extended a 15-year, 75% tax abatement as part of a community reinvestment area contract, which is a standard offer according to Ohio Revised Code. 

Underwood said, “We are super excited to see the hotel coming to our area and working with that management group has been fantastic. They are a great group of folks and we know this is something that will be extraordinary for our community.”

Finally, Indian Lake/Ohio Hi-Point FFA Chapter President Allison Kinney accepted a $3,000 donation from the Logan County Farm Bureau. The grant will cover various equipment in the new FFA Livestock Building. 

The board will meet again on March 20th at 5 pm.
