With the Nov. 8 bond issue failing by just 16 votes, Weathersfield Board of Education voted tonight to go back to voters a second time.

The district wants to get local funds to match a potential $15.6 milion Ohio School Facilities Commission grant.

The board approved placing a total of 7.6 mills on the March ballot, including a 6.6-mill, 30-year bond issue to generate $9,056,940 and a 1-mill continuous improvement levy to generate $85,521 for maintenance. The measure appears on the ballot as one issue, for a total of 7.6 mills.

“This is a necessity for our students,” Schools Superintendent Damon Dohar said.

Plans are to turn Seaborn Elementary into a K-6 building from a K-4 building, and add grades 7 and 8 to the high school to make it a 7-12 building.
