A member of the Board of Education expressed personal opinions about how they thought the Community Facilities Task Force work should be communicated.

To be clear, the work of Task Force is directed by the Superintendent at the request of the Board of Education. Board members do not direct the Task Force, nor do they provide counsel or set procedures for the Task Force.

The Board Member was not asked to provide any recommendations and did so independently.

The Board Member’s recommendations are solely their own and do not represent the perspectives of the Columbus City Schools or the entire Board of Education.

The Columbus City Schools Board of Education expects civility, respect, and the highest ethical standards in the important work on behalf of our students. No action has been or will be taken by the District or the Board of Education to implement the Board Member’s suggestions.

The Columbus City Schools Board of Education is focused on our students and committed to collaborating with families, students, teachers, staff, our community and all stakeholder groups in the students’ best interests.
