Click Here for November 6, 2018 Ballot Issue Facts

We are urging everyone to protect their right to vote in this important election. Many of our school district residents are unaware that their registration may have lapsed or that they must register to vote again if they have moved or changed their name. Others THINK they are registered but then discover they are not.
 
PLEASE make sure you are registered. Take a moment to check your voter registration status at myohiovote.com. Voter registration ends Oct. 9, 2018.
 
Thank you for your continued support of our students and schools.

As we've been sharing in our communications regarding the Lex new facilities project, the state facilities commission (OFCC) recalculates each district's local share (the equity rank) every September.

We were recently informed by the OFCC that the Fiscal Year 2019 revised equity ranking list has been completed.

On the previous equity ranking list (FY '18) Lexington's local share of the cost of our new facilities project was 52% and the state share was 48% of the cost for the new facilities project.

On the NEW equity ranking list just released (FY '19), Lexington's local share of the cost of the new facilities project is now 47% and the state share of the cost is now 53% for the new facilities project.

At this point, we cannot make any changes to the November 6, 2018 ballot language, but assuming the new local share percentage will result in a lower cost to Lexington residents, we will reduce the amount of the bonds actually issued to fund our share of the project.

LexingtonSRO
A new face will be walking the halls and patrolling the parking lots and playgrounds of the five Lexington school buildings in the fall. Officer Mike Davis of the Lexington Police Department was hired to be the School Resource Officer for the district beginning in August.  Officer Davis is a graduate of Lexington High School, a twelve year veteran of the Lexington Police Department, and also serves as a field training officer for new recruits. He has been married for 17 years and he and his wife have a five year old daughter. Officer Davis is very eager to begin his new role with the department as the SRO for Lexington Local Schools. 

In regards to his new role, Officer Davis stated that he sees “the implementation of a school resource officer as a huge opportunity to further serve the community, as well as the faculty and students of our schools. We have the opportunity to bring the community, police, and educators together with the common goals of maintaining a high standard of education, promoting a safe environment free of violence and bullying, and open the doors of the police department to the people we serve.”

Superintendent Mike Ziegelhofer shares Officer Davis’ sentiments and stated, "Lexington Local Schools welcomes Officer Davis to the district and is excited to partner with him as part of its on-going efforts to improve the safety and security of its schools, and to ensure that students can work, learn, and grow in an atmosphere that promotes positivity, safety, and student success and wellness."
