Dear New Albany Parents and Learning Community,
Thank you for your support! We had to wait quite a few days past Election Day, but the result was well worth the wait. The Franklin County Board of Elections has notified us that Issue 50 has passed. Officially, results will be certified this afternoon.
We are grateful for your investment in the future of our students and their education!
Today, we are a school district at a crossroads and your response of support ensures that we are able to continue the progress to achieve the vision of our schools for the future. We are incredibly thankful that you value education as an essential component of a strong community.
Immediately, we will begin the process to engage our staff and community in designing our new building with a commitment to delivering a flexible building within the approved budget. Simultaneously, we will continue our financial work to contain operating costs as we move forward to achieve the district’s vision for the future
We value your support and do not take this trust lightly. We know this is a difficult economic time and understand that this was a significant request. We will take care to manage both the building project and the operating dollars with fiscal prudence, accountability and transparency.
We again thank our volunteers for the countless number of hours dedicated to this effort. We specifically wish to thank and acknowledge our campaign chair and New Albany Schools parent, John McClelland and his wife Angelika, our honorary chairs, and our neighborhood captains. We also thank our school board members, teachers, administrators and staff, parents, community members, students and donors who made this effort possible.
With sincere gratitude,
April Domine, Superintendent
Laura Kohler, Board President
