Administrators respond to Answer Line Doesn't the tardiness policy encourage students to stay home rather than coin- ing in late and facing disciplinary action which goes on their high school record? —Unsigned Answer from Dr. Robert Rcden, Superintendent of North Canton City Schools: One of the purposes cf the educational system is tc prepare the students for the world . cf work. Most jobs require that employees ccme to work regularly and that they be on time. Many employers check high school records, not only for grades but also fcr tardiness and attendance information. This is the only information delivered to employers by the schcol. Disciplinary actions which may have been imposed because of tardiness are net shown to employers. A student who '■ stayed heme frcm schcol fcr a day rather than faciny disciplinary action fcr being tardy, i s not only reinforcing negative habits, but is alsc creating a schcol record which could jeopardize future employ- mei it:. Parents and schccl officials need to work Icgether tc reinforce . ,the value cf schcol, . attendance and being on time. Schcol is important. If students are net there, or if they are late, the importance is jeopardized. Schccl records which are shared with potential employers and colleges are grades, test scores, attendance and tardiness. The number cf detentions fcr tardiness are not shared. Parents who have concerns about attendance and tardiness policies should work with the appropriate administrator to better understand or revise such policies. If concern continues, they should contact the superintendent and subsequently the Rcard of Education. Attendance at schcol and being en time are important fcr ncw and the future. How many of the Board's certified employees arc related to either Board members, administrators, or other certified employees? — Unsigned Answer [run Dr. Robert Roden, Superintendent of North Canton City Schools: Out oi 245' certificated employees, 11 are related to either Board members, administrators or other eertified employees. Seven are husband/wife combinations; two are parent/c'iild combinations; one involves two brothers-in- law; and the other is a brother/sister combination. A]'hough taxpayers may be concerned about nejjotism, there are cheeks and balances in the system. Tiere are no ci rcumstances in which an individual is supervise 1 by the person related to him or her. Tho first goal of the administration and Board ol Education is to find the best possible candidate for each position. The only pertinent question is: Are these individuals doing the jobs for which they are being paid? We believe this is the case. If anyone is aware of i.nstances where this is not working, lie/she should let us know. As a sidelight, North Canton City Schools is only the second largest,employer in this city. There are 170 married couples and numerous other relatives . who work at The Hoover Company. How much will ihe 5.8 mill operating levy add annually to the general fund? How much of tills increase will be allocated (o each of the following expenditures categories; salaries; employee benefits; purchased services; supplies' and materials; capital outlay-new; capital outlay-replacement; other? — Unsigned Answer from Diane Flad, School District Treasurer : The 5.8 mi 11 operating levy wi 1 I add $1,565,506 annually to the general fund.

Assistant: to the Superintendent, North Canton City Schools North Campus was built during the early 1970's when gas ln-.it for the entire buihlini was not available. In the [980's gas was made available for heating. The Hoard of Education luio conduct ed a study to determine tho costs involved in converting North Campus fran electric to gas heat. That study estimated the cost ol conversion to be approximately $218,000. Based on current rates ol electric and yus, the Board of F/lucatiou would have a payback of 5.74 years. The cost of conversion and a limited budget has prevented this project Iran moving forward. 'Hie electric bill for 12 months for North Campus (87-80) was $146,708.9).
