School District Board Votes On School Bond


ST. CLAIRSVILLE, OH - St. Clairsville Board of Education voted today 5-0 to place a $79,900,000 school bond on the November ballot.

“It is important for our students to have safe and quality facilities,” said Dr. Walter Skaggs, St. Clairsville-Richland City School Superintendent. “We have engaged with the faculty and the community for their input and are excited at the scope of the project.”

The bond project would include:

  • A new 100,000 square foot Elementary School. The proposed building will be a two-story structure containing expanded educational spaces, collaborative learning spaces throughout, a full-size gym, fine arts classrooms and a separate cafeteria.

  • A new High School addition to the current connector that will include classrooms, science rooms with labs, STEM lab & collaborative spaces and a new full-size gym with seating.

  • Renovations to the Connector building that will include classroom upgrades, lighting, HVAC, kitchen and cafeteria upgrades.

  • Demolition of the 1924 Middle School building.

  • A new Fine Arts Multi-Purpose Theater that will seat 750 and will serve the band, chorus and theatrical performances. The facility will contain a scene shop, green room, prop and costume areas.

  • A new Field-house that contains a new wrestling room, weight room, locker rooms and concessions.

  • New turf on the football field and resurfacing of the track.

The Board of Education presented to the City Council plans to improve the campus wide security by creating new entrances that will separate parent and bus drop-off and relocating the existing road so that no public access will be permitted on campus during school hours.  

In addition to the above, the voters will have an opportunity to pass a separate bond and operating  levy for a new natatorium with an eight lane pool, locker rooms and spectator seating.
