Ohio district to break ground on K-12 campus as part of $68 million plan

April 26, 2021
The Valley View district says the new campus will replace three existing schools.

The Valley View (Ohio) school district is moving forward with a $68 million school construction project after the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission approved its $39.3 million state share.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the district intends to build a new K-12 campus adjacent to the existing high school, using a mix of state and local funding.

Two of Valley View’s schools are about 100 years old.

Bond requests for new buildings were voted down in 2016 and 2017 elections, but residents approved a $28.7 million bond plan in spring 2020 to pay the local share of the project.

The existing high school building will house central office staff and the district’s preschool, along with a partnership with the YMCA for additional early learning center offerings. The district hopes to repurpose more high school space for community purposes.

The project funding includes money for abatement and demolition of the three schools being vacated.

The new K-12 campus is to be built immediately south of the existing high school.
