We live in challenging times for our community – and our children. More than ever, our kids need a good education for a better life. Yet a critical school levy expires this year. Without it, our kids lose $66 million a year.
CMSD seeks to renew the levy, and add 5 mills to preserve and update quality programs, improve test scores and graduation rates, keep good teachers, add technology, and prepare all students for college and careers.
In 2012, CMSD had the lowest educational rating in Ohio. Today, our schools are among the fastest
improving in Ohio. Your vote will support continued progress:
A graduation rate above 80% will keep rising
Reading and Math scores will keep rising
Students will have quality technology and internet access
Teachers will be equipped to go above and beyond during remote learning
Vital counseling, mental health, and nutrition help as needed
Students will get academic and vocational training for college and jobs
More grads will get financial scholarships for college or career training
For all this, Issue 68 adds less than $7 a month for the median Cleveland home value.
Businesses pay two-thirds of the cost. Losing this funding would be a huge setback for our kids.
