The Beavercreek School District began holding what they are calling “Community Conversations” Jan. 26 at various schools throughout the district. The forums are designed to educate residents in regards to the district’s recent financial problems following the failure to pass a levy in November and to push for the passage of the levy on the March 6th ballot. The forums are being led by district leaders, including Superintendent Nick Verhoff, Treasurer Stephen Maag, and members of the Beavercreek Board of Education.

“School funding is complicated and frequently misunderstood, and we want to offer residents the opportunity to sit down and converse with district leaders in an informal fashion,” said Verhoff. “Our goal is to provide them with answers to their most pressing questions.”

The Community Conversations are being held on the following dates and locations:

Thursday, January 26, 7pm, Shaw Elementary, 3560 Kemp Road
Wednesday, February 1, 7pm, Main Elementary, 2942 Dayton-Xenia Road
Wednesday, February 8, 7pm, Fairbrook Elementary, 260 N. Fairfield Road
Wednesday, February 15, 7pm, Parkwood Elementary, 1791 Wilene Drive
Tuesday, February 21, 7pm, Valley Elementary, 3601 Jonathan Drive
