Euclid City Schools places levy on ballot
The Euclid City Schools Board of Education has voted to place a 8.7-mill, 10-year emergency operating levy on the Nov. 5 ballot.
The levy, if passed this November, will raise $5.6 million annually. That’s the same amount that the district would have received from the renewal levy that was defeated in the November 2018 election.
The owner of a $75,000 house would pay about $228 a year, equal to $19 a month.
The district made significant cuts including limiting transportation for 1st through 8th graders to state minimum standards after the 2018 levy defeat. Students currently only receive transportation if they live more than two miles from their school.
The board has committed to restoring busing to 2018-2019 school year levels if the levy passes.
