ABOUT ISSUE 13
Continuing to Keep Our District Strong
The North Ridgeville Schools have the opportunity to protect quality education – without increasing taxes. Our community can make this happen by voting FOR Issue 13 on the March 17 ballot. Issue 13 is a substitute tax levy. It will combine four of our existing levies into a single levy that will not increase taxes. Issue 13 accounts for nearly 40% of our District's local operating budget. It is critical to protect the quality education that has contributed to our city’s growth.
Our enrollment has grown by more than 700 students in the past decade, but our schools are still operating at 2012 funding levels. Issue 13 allows our schools to benefit from our residential growth. Issue 13 will update our millage and spread the cost of funding our schools among residents. It will not increase taxes.
