HAMILTON TWP, Ohio - Little Miami School District will be looking for input from the public in the upcoming months as the district will be released from the state designated fiscal emergency category on May 22.
After 34 months of strict financial oversight, the district now looks forward to their own board of education having the final say about their schools, according to Superintendent Gregory Power.
Little Miami was one of only two districts in southwest Ohio under fiscal emergency. Their financial struggles took place after losing eight tax levies beginning in 2008. However, voters passed a new operating levy in 2011.
The district wants to restore financial and academic programs. They are holding three public meetings. The first is taking place Monday morning at 9 a.m. at Winans Fine Chocolates and Coffee located at 49 E. U.S. 22/Ohio 3 in Maineville.
A second meeting is April 19 at the Harlan Township Fire Department at 9120 Morrow-Rossburg Road. A third meeting is May 17 at the Doughboy's Bakery at 6099 E. U.S. 22/Ohio 3 in Morrow.
