POLAND, Ohio (WYTV) – Poland School District Superintendent David Janofa said residents should not worry if a levy passes to pay for a new K-8 building in the township; he said the old buildings will be demolished with passage.
He said school board members and school leaders are still encountering residents who are worried that the old buildings would sit idle, or be degraded, if a 4.5-mill bond levy is approved.
Janofa said it is not the intent of the Poland School Board to let the old buildings become eyesores. There are five buildings in all scheduled to be demolished if residents approve funding for the new school building.
He said there is money slated in the levy to tear them down.
If they can be sold, they will. Poland will also preserve items of historical significance, he said.
