Proposed budget figures presented at the school board's April 11 finance committee meeting showed $126,783,366 of revenue and $129,947,866 of expenses, leaving a $3.1 million gap to be filled even with the 2.4 percent tax hike, but that gap had been narrowed from $5.2 million at the committee's previous meeting and the district continues to work on it, Stone said.

During this meeting, the board of trustees also welcomed a trio of educators from Burntwood Elementary, who talked about they've successfully set-up a makerspace in their library since November 2017.

"I know as the interim superintendent, the students, teachers, and Allendale community will be in good hands", said Spearman.

School enrollment is projected to increase slightly. The original plan was to reduce 23 programs from two-year programs to one-year programs.

The school board, Cheshire said, was not as transparent as it should have been communicating details of the bond. Donnelly also has a background in teaching students with disabilities, Heinz said. He noted that there is a lot of residential space in the area that could be developed for housing, which opens up the possibility of unexpected enrollment growth.

The board reviewed the credentials of 16 applicants, narrowing down a list of eight semi-finalists, who were interviewed March 19-20.

Doug Trostle, the Board President, said, "On behalf of the Troy City Board of Education, I am excited to welcome Chris Piper as the next Superintendent of the Troy City Schools".

Andrews said the district is better than it was when he got here.

He has not returned multiple requests for comment, and the district has declined to comment.

Elkington explained the SRO's duties, which include: overseeing improvements to each school's safety plan; assisting staff and student safety training and practice drills; helping to identify potential building and grounds safety improvements (such as making entryways more secure, Elkington said); being the point person in case of an emergency and having knowledge of each building, keys, and awareness of security protocols; being the first safety officer on the scene in an emergency; and stopping a perpetrator planning or in progress of doing harm.
