  School Board Sets FY 2022 Appropriations At $66 Million  
  Approves Payment In Lieu Of Transportation To Charter, Parochial Schools:   October 7, 2021 Edition  
     Meeting last week, the Boardman Board of Education adopted a Fiscal Year 2022 appropriations resolution report in the amount of $66.801 million, including a general fund budget of $49.068 million.
      According to the district’s most recent five-year forecast, some $24.972 million of the system’s budget goes to salaries, while $11.173 million is consumed in fringe benefits.
      $2.273 million of the appropriations come from Covid-related American Relief Plan funds, while food service costs for the district are set at $1.499 million. Title I funding for disadvantaged students is reported at $995,300.
      Treasurer Terry Armstrong’s report to the school board reflected the district will see changes in revenues received through unrestricted grants-in-aid.
      “As the year progresses we will see a change in this line due to the implementation of the Fair School Funding Plan.
       “Funding that was received based on Average Daily Membership (ADM) included foundation revenue for students who attended non-public, charter schools and open enrollment.
       “A major change will be that this will no longer show up in a district’s ADM thus the per pupil funding will not be shown as revenue as we will get funded for students attending Boardman Local Schools,” Armstrong said, adding “This will be a net gain for Boardman as this will be off-set by lower expenditures for those students leaving the district that under the old school funding system resulted in costs that exceeded what we received for each student.”
      Affirming a decision made in August, the school board formally adopted a resolution saying that providing transportation to students who do not attend the school system as impractical.
      “It is recommended that the Board, after examination of factors as identified in ORC 3327.02, has declared by resolution that such transportation by school conveyance is ‘impractical’ and hereby agrees to pay the parent or guardian of said pupil in lieu of providing such service. Payment shall be based upon the reimbursement rate set by the Ohio Department of Education and shall not exceed the average cost of transportation per pupil in the state of Ohio,” an agenda of the school board’s meeting said.
      In August, the school board said the policy could affect transportation to “the Center for Adults and Children with Learning Disabilities, 118 West Wood St., Youngstown, Oh., as well as Cardinal Mooney High School, the Heartland Christian School, the Montessori School of the Mahoning Valley, Summit Academy. Ursuline High School and Youngstown Community School.”
      Approved for appointment to the system’s certified staff were Gianna DeToro, Ryan Mistovich and Victoria White.
      DeToro, intern psychologist, earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Youngstown State University. She will receive a salary of $26,250, paid through the School Psychologist Intern Grant.
      Mistovich will be an art teacher at Glenwood Junior High School replacing Robert Sheldone. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Westminister College.
      White, an intern psychologist. Ms. White earned her bachelor’s from Youngstown State University and her master’s degree from Kent State University. She will receive a salary of $26,250,paid through the School Psychologist Intern Grant.
