SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Even though administrative leaders say it is a challenging time for districts across the state, Springfield Local Schools will place a levy on the November ballot.
Springfield Local Schools are one of few given the "excellent with distinction" rating and they want to keep it that way. As a result, the district is moving forward with a 2.9 mill operating levy.
The district has not placed a levy on the ballot in two years, but school officials believe it is time.
"We're in a challenging time academically," said treasurer Ryan Lockwood, "and we just feel that as a school district, it's important that, in this area, to maintain that."
Lockwood says with state and local funds, the district had no other option but to move forward with a levy.
"Our only option, unfortunately, at Springfield Local Schools, which is roughly 80 percent funded by our local taxpayers, is to go to the voters," said Lockwood.
Another factor according to Lockwood, is the technology testing the district will soon be required to implement.
If passed, the levy would cost the owner of a $100,000 home, $390 a year. One resident says this is an amount he is absolutely willing to pay.
"The better the school system, the better the neighborhoods, so your property values stay up. And, if you don't vote for the levy, you're shooting yourself in the foot, because you're hurting your own property values," said Ron Matanick.
