Plans reviewed for Montrose center

The Bexley School Board reviewed plans for the proposed Terry Black Outdoor Center at Montrose Elementary at its Oct. 13 meeting. 

A few residents were concerned about some aspects of the plan, including the way it would affect the neighborhood’s appearance. 

The board decided to wait to express approval for the plan until it had more information, and will discuss the matter further. 

Also at the meeting, Superintendent Michael Johnson brought a proposed Mission, Vision and Strategic Priorities statement before the board, a document that would help guide the district’s actions for the next few years.

"We’ve had a number of community meetings all last year and faculty meetings, and spent the summer making some revisions," Johnson said.

At the November meeting, he said, the administration would have additional feedback and discussion, and could possibly adopt a final version in December. 

After adoption, he said, the district would develop and revise action plans based on the new vision. The community is welcome to comment on the plan at the November meeting.
