The Euclid Board of Education Approves Expansive District-Wide Cuts

EUCLID, Ohio--In November 2018, the District asked the Euclid community to renew a 2008 emergency levy that would have maintained $5.6 million in the District’s operating budget. Since the initial passage of the levy in 2008, these funds have helped support the educational programs offered to students throughout the District, along with helping fund the daily operations of our buildings, grounds, and student transportation. The 2018 renewal levy would have produced the same amount of funds it did 10 years ago, $5.6 million; it would have cost taxpayers no additional money.  Nonetheless, the community voted not to approve the District’s request by a vote of 48.29% (8,335) to 51.71% (8,924), a difference of 589 votes.

Since the renewal was turned down in November, the District has been evaluating possible budget cuts across all departments and schools. The District’s administrative team has enacted a number of operational reductions already this school year, attempting to minimize the impact of the cuts on classroom instruction.

Get in The Game

Deb is an Interpersonal Communication coach. Contact her at: DobbsCommunication.com

In life there are times when we all turn away from situations because they seem too hard to manage. Goals seem too extreme to accomplish. We shrink from commitment to avoid failure. We stay silent to avoid ridicule or harassment. No one wants to be singled out or put at risk. Sometimes it feels safer to remain neutral. The problem with indifference is nothing will change until we face our challenges. The old saying, what you resist persists, is true. Without direct intentional action there’s never a change.  Your first step in a new self-awareness is to realize what needs to change.
