6 EXTR ACentral THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Friday. October 18, 1991 SCHOOLS DARE cancellation concerns parents been asked to nominate "Students of the Week" to appear Fridays in Wyoming tion. "I think all parents are hoping the program won't be canceled," she said. "We've sent a letter to the city manager and police chief with our concerns. We'd like to see some creative thinking as to how we can reinstate the program. Even if it doesn't begin until January, we'd be happy." World said he plans on reinstating the program in August. If the district agrees, the program would be presented to the fifth grade as usual and to the sixth-graders who will miss it this year. "We're concerned that this group might fall between the cracks," Neumeister said. "Once a program is canceled, it's always hard to start up again." Neumeister said the PSA has not decided whether to ask city council for assistance. World said the unexpected resignation of a police officer last June led to the program cancellation as it was set to enter its fourth year. An officer was hired Monday, but won't be attending the four-month police academy until January. That means the department will be short one officer until April. Meanwhile, the DARE officer is needed in the department to ensure proper staffing at all times, World said. "We had grave concerns expressed at our PSA meeting over this," said Marty Neumeister, PSA president and mother of a fifth-grader. "Our biggest concern is that fifth grade is an age where we think the kids need the informa SWEETEST Royalty Roses Hfe 19.95 O 7818 HAMILTON AVE CINCINNATI, OHIO 43231 I 522-2222 IIJVEfJTOmr REDUCTION SALE!

Police Chief Tim World said the program was canceled this year because of a temporary lack of personnel. An explanatory letter was sent to parents of all fifth-graders who participate. "It has nothing to do with money or a philosophical difference," World said. "The police department and the city are very committed to the DARE program. I very-reluctantly canceled the program. We had no choice." Lakota may cut if levy rejected BY SUE KIESEWETTER Enquirer Contributor Dramatic cuts, including staff layoffs and the elimination of extracurricular activities, could result if Lakota Local School District's 5.9-mill operating levy fails next month, the schools' chief says. The district is facing a $4 million deficit by June, 1993, Superintendent Thomas Hayden told the school board Monday. The board already has cut $2 million in spending for this school year to avoid a June, 1992, deficit. If the levy fails, Hayden said, the district may have to seek a state loan. He said the district also would lack enough money to staff and buy materials for the freshman building and elementary school under construction. Both are expected to open next August. The levy would raise about $5 million per year, and would keep the district solvent for the next three to five years. Hayden said about $1 million of that 'would be needed to operate the two new schools. Hayden said that because the district's per-child expenditure is so low, there is little to cut from the budget. And while the district's enrollment has grown by 844 students this year, it has received no additional state funds, Hayden noted. Hayden said measures to be considered if cuts are needed include: Cutting staff to state mini- ? turns. That would mean a loss of 0 of district employees. Reducing administrators and classroom aides. Eliminating extracurricular activities. Closing buildings to community use. Eliminating high school busing, and only transporting elementary children who live two miles or farther from their schools.
