BOARDMAN

Passage of an emergency levy took a team effort, said John Landers, board of education vice president.

On Nov. 6, 53 percent of Boardman voters approved a 3.9-mill, three-year, additional emergency operating levy that will generate $3,178,231 annually and cost the owner of a $100,000 home $119.44 each year.

At the board’s Monday meeting, Landers thanked the public for supporting the school district.

“It was a team effort by students, parents, community members, by teachers, by principals, by administration, and we just want to say thank you for your support,” he said.

Passage of the levy means continuity for Boardman students, said Frank Lazerri, superintendent, adding that levy approval does not mean programs will be added, but will allow the district to keep what it has.

In other business, the board approved adding the AXA Equitable Life Insurance Co. as part of the district’s retirement option for staff members.

The plan is an option in which any employee contributions and earnings are tax-deferred until funds are withdrawn, usually at retirement.

“This is an additional option for our total staff if they want to shelter salary,” said Richard Santilli, treasurer.

There is no cost to the district for the plan, he noted.

The board’s next regular meeting will be at a special day and time: 5 p.m. Dec. 17. It will take place at Boardman Center Middle School.
