EXPAND THE 5-STAR RATED PRESCHOOL VILLAGE

One of the many ways this $3.2 million levy proposal will support our children and community is by expanding our Preschool Village. There is consensus in the field of education that investing in a high-quality preschool program can have a greater impact on the child, family, and community for the future. The vision of the Preschool Village is to have enough space to provide all children in the district with the opportunity to attend our 5-star rated preschool as well as have access to dental and vision services. The State of Ohio funds only 30% of the total operating expenses for preschool leaving 70% funded by local tax dollars. These levy dollars will be for operating expenses that will occur with an expansion of preschool including increased staffing.

SCHOOL SAFETY

Winton Woods City Schools believes students must first feel safe and secure in order to grow academically, emotionally, and socially. Because every emergency situation is unique, we continue to invest in preparing our students and staff for serious disruptions and threats. Like many other school districts, these funds will support an increased number of school resource officers on our two new campuses.

INCREASED ENROLLMENT

In the last four years, more students have become interested in the Winton Woods educational experience due to our quality academic programs and opportunities.

2015-16  => 3,589 Students
