By keeping high-quality academics and reasonable class sizes throughout our growing district

 

By maintaining school security, mental health and school counselors, and student activities

 

By ensuring UA Schools remains an asset that adds to our community’s quality and reputation

 

By avoiding significant cuts - $11 Million in the first year - that would reduce educational quality and college readiness

Issue 5 Facts

This levy is well justified and worthy of your consideration and support. Here’s why:

Issue 5 is necessary to keep our UA Schools strong. Despite continuing and projected student enrollment growth, state funding has not changed for over 30 years.

 

The last levy was projected to last until the 2019-20 school year, but UA Schools was able to stretch funding for two more years by cutting expenses, freezing new hires, and using reserves.

 

UA Schools prioritizes students, and keeps overhead and administrative costs low, so we lead Ohio – the entire state – in the percentage of our school budget that goes to the classroom. So, students get the maximum benefit of our tax dollars.
