The Board of Education has passed the required resolutions authorizing the district to place a 4.9 mill levy on the November 4, 2014 ballot.
Voters last passed a levy more than five years ago, in May of 2009, a little over five years ago. Since that time revenues have fallen almost 5% due to the economy and State of Ohio funding cuts. Expenses have been held in check, increasing at an average rate of just three-tenths of one-percent annually. In order to maintain the academic gains the district has made, the Board has determined that additional funds will be needed.
More information about the levy will be shared in the weeks leading up to the November ballot issue.
