Yellow Springs schools again considers building upgrades

Eileen McClory, Dayton Daily News |

At a recent school board work session, Superintendent Terri Holden and Treasurer Tammy Emrick said the price tag for either new construction or upgrades to existing buildings would be around $30 million. The district is considering some form of bond issue request on the November 2021 election ballot.

In 2018, then Yellow Springs Village Schools superintendent Mario Basora, who is now the superintendent for Huber Heights schools, told the Dayton Daily News that the buildings in the district date back to 1962. Toxic materials are in the buildings and the school uses a set of trailers in the back of the middle school, he said.

Other problems include not having an automatic fire suppression system, noncompliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, asbestos remediation and issues with the roof, along with other safety and security concerns.
