An operating levy is needed because our operating budget has been stretched for 13 years. Beachwood City Schools faces $3.5M in annual losses due to Ohio legislative actions over the next several years. The district must pass an operating levy now to make up for these losses. More than half the new operating money we seek will simply make up for what is being taken away from our community.
A bond levy is needed because our inefficient and deteriorating 60-year old elementary buildings, while SAFE FOR OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF, are a continuous drain on our taxpayers’ dollars. Building new will optimize our tax dollars and will save the district half a million dollars each year in operational expenses.
