The Board – “Finding Opportunity in Adversity”-
Junior Diamond Sports request for two additional baseball fields. Mr. Rappold described the recent request received from Junior Diamond Sports to place two additional baseball fields on the north practice fields. Mr. Rappold described the progress of the four earlier baseball fields and the potential need for additional baseball fields in the spring based upon the large number of students that play youth baseball. It was suggested that Junior Diamond Sports attend a January BOE meeting to formally present their plan for the two additional fields and describe maintenance of the fields during the season.
Mr. Rappold described the previous evenings Troy City Council meeting that both he and Mr. Sommer attended. The Troy City Council recently approved the Brown property annexation. Mr. Rappold described how he and the district were cautiously optimistic concerning the proposed development of this property. If the development progresses too quickly the effect on the Miami East District could potentially have a negative effect on the district based upon the current budget and facilities in the district. Mr. Rappold and district officials will carefully monitor the proposed zoning of this property in the future.
Mr. Rappold thanked both the Miami East BOE and the staff for a positive start to the current school year. The BOE was recognized for their work with the new facility and their continued efforts in ensuring that the district is the best in the county. The staff and administration was recognized for all their work in making sure the transition to the new building was done effectively.
