TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Toledo Public Schools levy supporters are celebrating the passage of Issue 24.

The 6.5 mill renewal for the district passed with 65 percent of the vote. Interim Superintendent Dr. Romules Durant says some new campaign strategies this year made last night's major win possible.

He says people in the community see the passion he and other administrators have for the district, and says that has drawn parents and voters to rally around them.

"We want to make sure, in regards to that, we ramp up our infrastructure, we can handle one-on-one," he said. "We can continue to move forward with the parts assessment, which is the state-designed assessment to do one-on-one, but more importantly, move into some type of academy where individual students can explore their realm of education."

He says he feels TPS has reached out and created new relationships with the community.
