Some parents, community members step forward, question validity of three-year contract.
A week before school begins, there is unrest in the Revere Local Schools district. As athletes and band members went through drills in fields adjacent to Revere High School, about 75 members and supporters of the Revere Education Association gathered outside the high school Tuesday for a press conference and then crowded into the library for the Board of Education meeting at 6:30 p.m. At issue is a contract with the Revere Education Association that had been agreed to before last May’s levy had passed. But because the board could not legally certify the funds for the life of the contract, the board asked the teachers association to rescind the agreement. Afterward, negotiations began anew. On July 12, the board voted to impose the …

Board hires intervention specialist for Hillcrest Elementary School, goes into executive session.
The Revere Board of Education spent about 10 minutes deliberating the merits of extending days in the 2011-2012 school year for certified and licensed staff, particularly counselors and librarians, before deciding in a 3-1 vote to approve Superintendent Randy Boroff’s recommendations. George Seifert voted against the measure. William Hoover was absent. The recommendations by Boroff were meant to offset some of the time cut out of the 2010-2011 budget for the staff to process transcripts and other information that extends beyond the regular school year. Seifert pressed for justification to extend the days. “At the high school level you have college applications going out, you have transcripts that have to go out, you have scheduling …

With anticipated state budget cuts, district's operating levy takes greater urgency.
Correction: An earlier version of this report had incorrect millage and cost per property figures. They were figures from a previous levy. Revere Local Schools plans a rally to support a levy 1:30-3 p.m. Sunday at the Revere High School stadium (main gym if there's rain), 3420 Everett Rd. The 4.83 mill, 10-year emergency levy for operating expenses would increase taxes by $148 a year per $100,000 of value. The levy vote is on May 3. The district says the levy is necessary to maintain the district's "Excellent" rating, and the district anticipates declining support from the state. Many school districts face steep cuts in state support as Ohio struggles to cut an estimated $8 billion deficit. Voters in February passed a renewal levy …
