Napoleon Schools will try for levy again

Posted: Updated:
NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Cuts could be on the way for the Napoleon School District after voters turned down an earned income tax levy Tuesday, but the superintendent says he's not giving up just yet.

"We've already cut so many positions that I'm not sure the kids aren't going to feel it a little bit this time," said Superintendent Dr. Stephen Fogo.

The district was about 140 votes short of approving the levy that would have gone toward operating costs in the schools.

"So that would be salary and benefits of all employees, the electricity, the utility bills that we have, paper, textbooks, those kinds of things," Fogo explained.

Without the money coming in, cuts will have to be made, and that's not sitting well with some parents.

"If you can't give a little bit to help your community raise smarter children, what are you really doing?" asked resident Rechelle Miller.

Fogo says one thing they'll do to cut costs is not fill positions as teachers retire. He says they need this money though, so voters can plan on seeing another levy on the November ballot.

"Let's get it rallied up, let's get some signs in the windows," Miller said. "Whatever we gotta do, let's do it."
