Performance Audit Finds $1.7 Million in Savings for Indian Creek Local Schools

Nearly $800,000 in unnecessary bus and building expenditures is among more than $1.7 million in potential savings for Indian Creek Local School District (Jefferson County) identified in a performance audit released by Auditor of State Dave Yost. “The district is making progress on deficit reduction,” Auditor Yost said. “These recommendations should help achieve the ultimate goal of operating with a balanced budget.” Nearly $800,000 in savings could be obtained from eliminating unnecessary buses from the fleet and from reconfiguring buildings to increase usage rates and eliminate unused capacity. Approximately $650,000 in savings would result from bringing staffing levels in line with peers, and $333,000 from bringing health insurance contributions and various work-related benefits such as leave and tuition reimbursement in line with peers.

This is a real shame. I feel bad for the teachers and staff as they work very hard and create a great learning environment for their students. I am just curious if past practices by the school board and senior administrators will prove true. The biggest blunder was Wintersville Elementary, they shut it down because it was structurally unstable, an engineering firm moved in and said nothing was wrong with the building. Second, they sold the football facility in Mingo to the village of Mingo for $1 which was then resold to Wheeling Pitt for hundreds of thousands of dollars. As a graduate of Indian Creek, I feel that the people in district deserve better leadership. It is up to you to make a difference, vote them all out and find a new superintendent. Sometimes change is good.

Jobs bring people to our area first not schools. So far we have no jobs.

Wintersville and Wayne, drained all the money from Mngos coffers while the money was there, so now they need to depend on levies.

Good luck.
