The Cleveland Heights-University Heights School Board has voted to place a 5.5 mill operating levy on the ballot on November 8, 2016. The amount of the levy is the smallest operating levy that has been sought by the District in over 20 years, and the 5 years that have passed between operating levies is the longest the District has gone for at least 20 years.
Financial support for public schools from Columbus has been eroding for years. Failure to pass the levy will result in significant cuts to teachers and programs and will negatively impact the over 5,300 students that attend Heights schools. It may also impact the other community services provided by the District.
We need YOUR vote in favor of the levy. We also would welcome volunteers and any contributions you are willing to make. Check back on this page in August for more information about the levy and how you can support its passage.
Citizens for Our Heights Schools' 2016 levy campaign is chaired by Dallas Schubert, Lisa Hunt, and Ryan Routh. Our treasurer is Abby Botnick.
