The Winton Woods City Schools Board of Education has placed an operational levy on the ballot for the March 17 election. The levy would generate $3.2 million annually for operating expenses related to educational programs. This is the first Winton Woods levy placed on the ballot in over 10 years that requests additional funding.
What is an operational levy? This type of levy funds essential day-to-day operational expenses such as quality staff, utilities, and classroom supplies and equipment. This revenue would also fund our increasing number of students enrolled, school safety and security, as well as the 350-seat preschool village.
Please remember: The district cannot spend any tax money on a campaign to encourage residents to vote for this levy. However, a group of parents and citizens has formed a committee to generate support for the levy.
In the last four years, more students have become interested in the Winton Woods educational experience due to our quality academic programs. School enrollment has increased - to over 4,000 students. This levy would allow the district to continue its essential educational services for our communities.
