The Yellow Springs Board of Education released the following statement on Thursday, Aug. 8:
The Yellow Springs Board of Education and Superintendent Mario Basora are happy to announce that the negotiations for an amended contract for Superintendent Basora have successfully concluded with a proposed five-year contract. We anticipate a resolution at the regular business board meeting on Sept. 12.
We are pleased to announce that the superintendent has withdrawn his application for a position in Wyoming City schools and is fully committed to continuing our work with the students, educators and community of Yellow Springs for the 2013–2014 school year. The Board of Education and the superintendent look forward to the start of the new school year and are excited about the implementation of Project Based Learning within the 2020 Strategic plan. In addition, the board and administration will work diligently together to improve processes and protocols going forward.
As “fearless thinkers,” our goal is to create the best school experience in Ohio for our students. With Superintendent Basora at the helm, and through our work with Project Based Learning and the 2020 Strategic Plan, we think we can achieve this mission.
Formed in 1885, the Yellow Springs schools are dedicated to a vision of becoming a school of creativity and innovation. The school district currently serves approximately 715 students (approximately 100 through open enrollment from 15 districts in four counties). Our schools offer a high-touch learning environment, receiving substantial community support to make this possible.
