SPECIAL BOARD MEETING: The Cardinal Board of Education has called a Special Meeting on Monday, December 5, 2016 with an Executive Session for the purpose of Personnel Contract and Superintendent’s Evaluation. The meeting will start at 6:00 p.m. in the Board Office.  |  Agenda


ELECTION UPDATE: 11/23/16 – The Cardinal Local School District is disappointed to share that Issue 27, the 4.5 mill levy on the November 8, 2016 ballot has failed by eight votes. All votes from the election have been accounted for in both Geauga and Trumbull counties. The final vote count in Geauga County is 2,253 votes for the levy with 2,248 against. In Trumbull County the final vote count is 4 votes for the levy and 17 against. The two counties combined give a final count of 2,257 votes for the levy and 2,265 votes against the levy – a difference of eight.  “It’s been a long two weeks waiting for the final results to come in, I’d be lying if I said this doesn’t sting a little,” says Cardinal Local School District Superintendent Dr. Scott J. Hunt. “However, that being said, eight votes is an incredibly close margin and I am extremely proud of the efforts the levy committee put forward in this campaign cycle, they worked tirelessly to get the word out about the need for this new money. Thank you to everyone who voted for our district, your support is what makes Cardinal special.”  |  Full Statement
