OTTOVILLE — Ottoville Local Schools have learned what Governor Mike DeWine’s new bi-ennial budget will mean to the district.

Superintendent Scott Mangas shared H.B. 66 Foundation Aid Simulations for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 with the school board Wednesday evening.

“We will see an approximate 1.9 percent increase in year one and a .9-percent increase in year two, amounting to about $48,000 in year one and $22,500 in year two,” Mangas said. “We did better than some other districts.”

Ottoville will also see $19,000 in year one and nearly $30,000 in year two for enrollment growth.

Mangas had reported earlier in the summer that the district’s enrollment numbers were increasing to levels previously seen in 2004-05. Ottoville also welcomed 67 open enrollment students the year and has only 28 going out. Open enrollment students are from Delphos, Fort Jennings, Kalida, Lincolnview, Wayne Trace and Continental.

“This is our highest-ever open enrollment number,” Mangas added.

Ottoville will also receive $28,000 in Student Wellness and Success Funds in 2020 and $40,000 in 2021. Mangas said the funds would be used to pay a counselor for the high school.

A $4,528.50 Safety Grant from the Bureau of Workers Compensation will be used for security cameras in the bus garage.

Middle school teacher Alicia Nussbaum gave her resignation to the board, which was approved. In the next motion, Jared Horstman was hired as middle school Social Studies teacher for the 2019-20 year. his mentor will be Mark Odenweller, who was granted a one-year supplemental for that position.

Supplemental teacher contracts were also issued to Keith Utendorf for co-senior class advisor and Shawn Knodell for junior high science fair advisor.

In his report, Mangas noted that the Ottoville Fire and EMS will hold a mock disaster by the school’s bus garage on Oct. 4. Juniors and seniors from Ottoville as well as other neighboring schools will be invited for the safety presentation.

The board also approved numerous donations and receipts, including: $62.50 each from the Ottoville VFW and Lions Club for the sports calendar; $242.70 from US Greenfiber for recycling; $246 from the Putnam County Ag Society for the fair band show; and $18,137.36 from the Ottoville Big Green Athletic Boosters for the refinishing of the basketball court in the big gym.
