Parents want kids to go to W. Clermont schools

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        STONELICK TOWNSHIP — Two parents in the Clermont Northeastern school district want their children to attend West Clermont schools instead.

        Carol Glotfelter and Debra Wilson are going to the voters for approval of a property transfer that would make their homes and land part of the West Clermont district.

        They want their children to be able to attend Willowville Elementary, which is closer to their Baldwin Woods Trail homes in Stonelick Township than to the Clermont Northeastern primary school.

        A community forum at 7:30 p.m. today at Stonelick Township Hall, 475 S. Broadway in Owensville, will attempt to address the issues in the case, which will be decided in a special election Feb. 6.

        The two women, Clermont Northeastern Superintendent Charlie Shreve and resident Pam Humphries will answer questions.

        The vote might not have the final decision.

        The Clermont Northeastern and West Clermont districts say they will not agree to the transfer, which would mean a loss of $5,000 in tax revenues for Clermont Northeastern.

        The two women also petitioned the state Board of Education.

        The Clermont Northeastern board plans to discuss the property transfer during its next session, Feb. 12-13.

        This is not the first time Clermont Northeastern has been involved in a request for a property transfer.

        In November, Elizabeth Schmitt and John and Patricia Donohoo sought a transfer to Milford schools.

        That issue was decided in a public election. The transfer request failed, with 52 percent voting no.
