Beavercreek School Board OKs Construction Projects, Lowers Pay-to-Play Fees

BEAVERCREEK -- The Beavercreek school board voted Thursday night to approve four construction projects and to reduce pay-to-play fees for athletes.

School officials say money for the construction projects will come from a $5 million surplus in the district's 2008 bond-funded facilities program and from existing permanent improvement funds.

The planned construction projects include:
An 18,500-square-foot preschool addition to the current Board of Education offices, located at the corner of Kemp and Hanes roads;
A 7,500-square-foot gymnasium and community gathering space at Shaw Elementary;
A covered, non-enclosed walkway connecting Beavercreek High School to Ferguson Hall, which serves as the home of BHS ninth graders;
Athletic facility improvements at Coy Middle School, to include a storage building, scoreboard and baseball/softball dugouts.

"We have an opportunity to address some of our facilities needs in a cost-effective way due to the favorable bidding climate, and we are able to do so thanks to prudent fiscal management on the part of district leaders," said Al Nels, president of the Beavercreek Board of Education.

The board also voted to reduce Pay-to-Participate fees for high school and middle school athletics and co- and extra-curricular activities, effective with the 2014-15 school year.

"Extracurricular and co-curricular activities offer important learning, growth and citizenship opportunities for middle and high school students, and we believe it is important to make those opportunities accessible to as many students as possible," Nels said.

In athletics, Beavercreek High School students currently pay $300 per sport, with an individual cap of $600 and a family cap of $750, fees that rank among the highest in the Greater Western Ohio Conference. These fees will be reduced to $150 per sport, with an individual cap of $300 and a family cap of $450. Middle schoolers, who currently pay $200 per sport with an individual cap of $400 and a family cap of $750, will pay $100 per sport, with an individual cap of $200 and a family cap of $450 in the revised schedule.

Students who participate in activities such as the BHS Academic Team, Beaverettes Dance Team, Speech and Debate, Marching Band or Show Choir will no longer be required to pay participation fees.
