The impressive and inclusive committee put together by OPRF to sort out how to deal with the school's massive financial reserve is hard at work. Charged with presenting recommendations to the school board by December, the committee of school insiders and notably of OPRF outsiders, will be meeting this Monday evening.

With board direction and school finance presentations covered at an initial meeting, we expect to see this all-star committee begin to sort out options for the $120 million + reserve which could include reductions in future tax levy increases, if not in the levies themselves. We also expect, coupled with the school's strategic plan, prudent investments in academics and facilities.

As its newly formed school board knows this is a crucial moment for OPRF to regain the confidence and trust of
its constituents.
