The Arcanum-Butler Board of Education recently approved two resolutions that would allow the The Ohio School Facilities Commission (OSFC), the State agency responsible for administering State-sponsored school building projects, to perform the necessary work to repair the defective standing seam metal roof and the efflorescence staining on the exterior masonry walls of the District’s K-12 Building. The K-12 Building was initially part of the OSFC’s Classroom Facilities Assistance Program, and the OSFC has authorized the repair work as part of that same program as an amendment to the original project.
The problems with the roof and masonry walls arose due to a failure to provide quality work for our building, and we are committed to correcting the problem and holding the responsible parties accountable. The State Attorney General’s office will pursue the responsible parties for reimbursement of the repair costs.
The goal of the Board of Education and Administration with this repair work is to make sure that our building and grounds continue to be a source of pride for our community. It is our commitment to continue to work proactively to correct this problem. We thank you for your patience and support as we work through the issues. The district will provide updates on the progress of the project.
