Young spellers excel from 'a' to b-e-e
African American students show prowess at event [...] on Saturday, 15 word gladiators dressed in T-shirts denoting their love for the components of the dictionary took on the form of an academic beehive, competing in the African American National Spelling Bee, the capstone event of a nonprofit group committed to training middle school students for competition and academic achievement. There were dings after "idiosyncrasy," "duress" and "bequest," as nervous parents shifted in their seats and sighed in the Heinen Theatre at Houston Community College's Central Campus. The soundtrack for the event's final ovation was "Survivor" - a winner's anthem by Beyoncé's former group, Destiny's Child. Robert Garner, a Houston real estate entrepreneur and founder of the African American National Spelling Bee Championships Inc., has organized events in Pennsylvania and California over the last decade. Children from Houston Independent School District, Crosby ISD, Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, YES Prep Southside charter school and the Abiding Word Lutheran School participated in the bee this year. The National Assessment of Educational Progress, a reading scale that ranges from zero to 500, measures U.S. student reading performance in grades 4, 8 and 12. According to the 2013 results reported by the U.S. Department of Education, average eighth-grade reading scores for Asian students were 280; 276 for white students; 256 for Hispanic students; 251 for American Indian students; and 250 for black students. Jacqueline Terrell, the spelling bee's executive director, said the group's mission is to close achievement gaps by pushing students beyond memorization with word decoding techniques. The Walker brothers attend Crosby Middle School and trained in Saturday workshops with volunteers and African American spelling bee alumna Angel Walker, their older sister.

North Royalton schools face significant operating cuts if voters reject May tax increase, school officials say
The North Royalton schools hope voters will approve a 4.4-mill bond issue and .5-mill levy in May. If not, the schools might eliminate 15 teacher positions and increase class sizes to 30 or more students. NORTH ROYALTON, Ohio - The North Royalton schools might eliminate 15 teacher positions and increase class sizes to 30 or more students, if voters don't approve a property-tax increase May 2. Also, the district might stop busing North Royalton High School students and bus K-8 students only if they live outside a 2-mile radius of their schools. In addition, the district might scrap all North Royalton Middle School athletic programs and require families to pay more for sports and music programs. The district would save about $3.5 million through these and other cuts and would spend the money on badly needed building repairs, including new roofs and heating-ventilation-and-air-conditioning systems. "This is a crucial time for our district, our students and our community as a whole," schools Superintendent Greg Gurka said at a recent school board meeting. "The rhetoric of, 'Tighten your belts and live within your means,' can no longer be thrown around like a rallying cry. "We have always tightened our belts and we are the poster-child for living within our means," Gurka said. "But now critical dialogue needs to be had on how this district is going to look in the coming years." On Jan. 23, the school board placed a 4.4-mill bond issue and .5-mill building-maintenance levy on the May 2 ballot. The district would borrow $88.9 million upfront and district property owners would repay the debt over 30 years. The money would pay for a school building master plan, which would involve replacing three elementary schools with one new school, adding a new high school wing and renovating the middle school. North Royalton school-improvement plan includes new high school wing It's the same bond issue, levy and master plan voters defeated 53 percent-47 percent in November. The package would cost the owner of a $200,000 home $18.08 a month or $217 a year. Gurka and the school board did not consider, at least publicly, scaling down the plan to increase the likelihood that voters would approve it. "We've had five bond issues on the ballot (since 2012) and they were different almost every time," Gurka said. "I think this (bond issue in November) was the best plan we've put forward." Gurka said the district is still refining Plan B and will present specifics during a March board meeting. Survey says North Royalton and Broadview Heights voters rejected a $54.5 million bond issue for the schools in November 2012; $49.8 million bond issues in November 2013 and May 2014; and a $28.4 million bond issue and 1-mill permanent levy in November 2014. In each case, the district would have used the money to repair deteriorating school buildings. After the November 2014 bond issue-levy defeat, the district tried a different approach. In February 2015 it formed a Community Engagement Task Force, consisting of community members. They worked with the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission to weigh whether the district should renovate existing schools or build new ones. After a year of work, and seeking input from citizens, the task force recommended the building master plan, which featured the consolidation of three elementary schools into one new building. The consolidation was recommended partly due to declining enrollment but mostly to provide better learning spaces and technology, Gurka said. After the November 2016 bond issue failed, the task force organized focus groups - consisting of random registered voters, along with PTA and booster club presidents - to determine what went wrong at the polls. "The major theme is that the community realizes that there are serious issues with our buildings but does not understand the urgency to fix them and how they are impacting children," Gurka told cleveland.com in an email. Also, the schools paid Business Research Services Inc. in Beachwood $9,500 to conduct a December phone survey of 400 district residents. When asked why they believed voters opposed the November bond issue, 40.5 percent of respondents said some residents don't want to or can't pay higher taxes. Meanwhile, 19.8 percent of respondents said the district has done a poor job of managing money; 17.2 percent said many families don't have children in the public schools; 16 percent said the district was asking for too much at one time; 10.5 percent said residents don't know how the district would spend the new money; 8 percent said voters don't know the conditions of the buildings and why it's urgent to repair them; 6.3 percent said the district should repair the existing buildings instead of building new; and 4 percent said school leaders aren't trustworthy. Nearly two out of three, or 62.5 percent of respondents, knew about the building master plan. Of those who knew, 48 percent liked the plan and 34.4 percent did not. Plan B On Jan. 4, about 200 residents, teachers and school workers assembled at the high school for a town-hall meeting about the future of the schools. At the meeting, Gurka presented two options: If voters don't approve a bond issue and maintenance levy in May, the district - under a "Plan B" -would slash its operations budget to pay for building repairs. Plan B would include teacher reductions and class-size increases, estimated to save $750,000 annually. Busing changes would save $950,000. Elimination of middle-school sports would save $125,000. Increasing pay-to-participate would save $250,000. Here are other possible cuts and the amounts they would save: Eliminate about six remedial-support staff positions: $300,000. Eliminate three teachers and a coordinator in gifted-student services: $185,000. Reduce custodial staff hours by stopping after-hours activities by outside groups: $200,000. Cut various administrative and support-staff positions: $450,000. Eliminate eighth-grade foreign language and phase out German classes: $75,000. Reduce the number of field trips: $25,000. Cut back on professional development for staff: $25,000. Buy fewer supplies: $50,000. The total $3.5 million in annual savings would help fund Plan B building repairs, which would include replacing HVAC systems in the high and elementary schools, where students roast in summer and wear coats in the winter. Also, the district would replace sections of the middle school roof, repair parking lots, buy new buses, replace some windows and make school entrances more secure. However, the district would not have enough money under Plan B to remove asbestos from buildings, upgrade fire and security alarms, make building more handicapped-accessible, replace water pipes, install new fire sprinklers, replace furniture and flooring and improve technology infrastructure. Gurka, during a December board meeting, said Plan B was not his first choice. "It's not a wise use of dollars, but we have to make those decisions," Gurka said. "If we take funds from operating, that will hurt our educational programs and services. But we can't continue to wait." At the January town-hall meeting, attendees divided into 30 small groups and discussed the two options. Twenty-two groups advised the district to place the same bond issue and levy back on the ballot in May. "We are a district waiting for a disaster," said a Brook Park man who works for the North Royalton schools. "If you don't put this back on the ballot, this district is going to be in trouble." Some groups supporting the bond issue and levy suggested ways to improve their chances on the ballot. They said the district should better communicate accurate information, devise a better marketing plan, specify operating cuts under Plan B and stress that property values would fall without good schools. Other groups recommended coming up with other options that would involve raising and spending less money, or reducing salaries and wages instead of eliminating teacher positions. "We invite you to put on your thinking caps and see if there's another way to solve this problem," one man told district officials. A retired man said workers in the private sector, and those on fixed pensions, can't relate to cost-of-living increases and benefits that school employees receive. He said every time a levy passes, the incomes of average citizens decrease. "Older retired people just can't sign on for something like that," the man said. "That's why it (the bond issue) failed." Some brought up the "football-stadium" controversy, which has circulated for several years, as a possible reason why voters continually reject bond issues. The controversy surrounds district spending - and what some residents believe was overspending - on Serpentini Chevrolet Stadium. Gurka has always defended district spending on the stadium. It dates back to 2009, when the Ohio Department of Education ordered the schools to make the stadium bleachers and restrooms handicapped-accessible. Gurka said the schools made those upgrades, and built concession stands, while the Stadium Foundation, a private nonprofit, formed and raised money for a new track and field at the stadium. The schools contributed $2.9 million toward stadium improvements and sold a cell tower for another $525,000.
