Newbury Territory Transfer Proceedings

At its meeting on August 20, 2019, the ESC Governing Board unanimously adopted a resolution proposing the transfer of territory of all of Newbury Local School District to West Geauga Local School District.  This action represents an important step in the process of effectuating a transfer that is in the interests of better serving the students of Geauga County by combining resources, preserving programming, and leveraging economies of scale.  Click on the following link for a copy of the August 20 resolution (click here).  This resolution was then filed, together with an accurate map of the proposed territory to be transferred, to the Newbury LSD and West Geauga LSD Boards of Education.  The Governing Board’s action followed resolutions adopted by those Boards of Education, which requested this proposal.  Click on the following link for a copy of Newbury’s January 14, 2019 resolution (click here), and click on the following link for a copy of West Geauga’s June 24, 2019 resolution (click here).   What’s next?  Under state law, the ESC Governing Board “shall at its next regular meeting that occurs not earlier than thirty days after the adoption by the governing board of a resolution proposing such transfer, adopt a resolution making the transfer effective at any time prior to the next succeeding first day of July, unless, prior to the expiration of such thirty-day period, qualified electors residing in the area proposed to be transferred, equal in number to a majority of the qualified electors voting at the last general election, file a petition of referendum against such transfer.”  The next regular meeting of the ESC Governing Board occurring not earlier than 30 days after August 20 is scheduled for October 1.  At that meeting, unless a referendum petition is filed in the ESC Superintendent’s office within the 30-day referendum period, the Board intends to adopt the resolution making the transfer effective as of June 30, 2020.  Click on the following link for the most current draft of the proposed October 1 resolution (click here).  After the ESC Governing Board’s adoption of the October 1 resolution, the West Geauga LSD Board of Education would adopt a resolution accepting the territory, and the ESC Governing Board would file an accurate map showing the boundaries of the territory transferred with the appropriate authorities. The Geauga County ESC is committed to clarity in its intentions and transparency in its actions, as evidenced by the summary of territory transfer proceedings above and the links to important documents.  We trust that you will find the ESC responsive to questions and requests for information about the proceedings.  In carrying out the stated request of the Newbury LSD and West Geauga LSD Boards of Education, the ESC is committed to the process while recognizing the significance of the proposal to the community.
