This is the building the committee chose.
The Project 
- A new, fully furnished facility for grades k-8 and renovations to the existing High School. .
- An environmentally friendly and efficient building utilizing the benefits of "green"technology
- A building in which security features provide a safe environment for students and staff.
- New classrooms providing up-to-date technology, science labs, and flexible learning spaces to enhance the instructional environment.
- A building providing the space and accessibility to meet the needs of our physically challenged population.
- Renovations to the exisiting high school to create efficiencies of operation and enhanced educational opportunities.

  • The Rationale: 
    • .The Ohio Schools Facilities Commission (OSFC) advised the district that aging buildings would cost more to renovate than to replace and OSFC would provide co-funding accordingly.
    • The consolidation of Woodland, East, South, and the Junior High would allow operational cost reductions contrasting the current building configuration.
    • The State's financial commitment to GCS's for the project is $18,192,750.
    • Interest rates are at an all time low. 
    • It is much more cost efficient to run one new building than four old buildings.

  • The Cost For Taxpayer:
    • 6.43 Mills for 28 years and 1/4% School District Income Tax
      • With the elimination of a 2 mil permanent improvement levy enacted in 1989
    • $ 100,000 home = $173 annually (taxpayer 64 years old and less living in home)
    • $ 100,000 home = $144 annually (taxpayer 65 years or older living in home)
    • $ 25,000 income = $63.00 annually ($50 Senior Credit)
  • For information on figuring your tax burden go here:
    The last new school built in the Greenville School District is the current High School. It will be 50 years old in 2013. There is money in the Ohio School Facilities Commission grant to refurbish the high school. It seemed that this was the most prudent course of action to take at this time. The current cost for operation of our current buildings is around $1.70 per square foot. New schools similar to ours are operating for less than half of that. So we go from four inefficient schools to one very efficient school and our operating levy lasts that much longer.
