May 4 Levy Announcement by Dr. Clifford
The West Carrollton School District will be on the November 8, 2016 ballot with a 5.5 mill, 5 year operating levy request. As a result of not passing the 5.5 mill levy request on March 15, 2016 the following cost saving reductions will take place: 1) prior to the start of the 2016-17 school year, we will only provide transportation per the state minimum – Kindergarten – 8th grade and living two or more miles from school, 2) there will be no transportation for the high school or preschool and, 3) we will be making an additional $215,000 in budget reductions.
If the levy does not pass on November 8, 2016, these changes will follow: 1) we will be making 20 teacher/staff reductions prior to the start of the 2017-18 school year, 2) we will continue to provide transportation per the state minimum and, 3) we will be back on the May 2, 2017 ballot with a 6.8 mill operating levy request.
If the 5.5 mill levy for 5 years passes on November 8, 2016, these changes will follow: 1) we will bring back transportation for Kindergarten – 8th grade at the 1 mile limit by January, 2017. 2) we will provide transportation to the high school, and 3) we will not be making 20 teacher/staff reductions.
