Manfredi is seeking a third term on the board.
“What (the board is) currently working on is the ability for school consolidation,” he said.
Manfredi also noted that “we have aged buildings and the cost to
maintain them is very high. We are looking to seek funding to construct
new facilities and house our children on a common campus. With the state
legislators help I hope that we can work with the Ohio Facilities
Commission and be able to consolidate districts.”
He said that since
he was elected in 2005 his goal has always been to see the district
improve. “We have maintained an excellent district rating and cost per
pupil is always near the lowest in the county,” he said. “Our
administrative staff stays consistent and we seem to be able to maintain
courses of education that enable our students to be prepared for
college or the workplace”
Manfredi is a member of the Ohio School Board Association and Berkshire Athletic Boosters.
