November 3 - Zero Tax Increase Ballot Issue
On The Ballot
Beavercreek is on the November 3, 2020 ballot for zero tax increase of a 9.80-mill substitute emergency levy.
How Much Will Taxes Increase?
This ballot issue, if passed, will result in a zero tax increase for residents.
What Happens If It Passes?
If it passes, funding provided by the passage of this ballot issue would continue to help fund the day-to-day operations of our schools, such as teachers, technology, utilities, and classroom supplies.
The ballot issue is a request that will help us to continue to create a student-centered, inclusive learning environment through innovative opportunities that inspire and empower all to lead and serve.
What Happens If It Fails?
If it fails, then the need does not go away and it only places our district closer to a funding cliff later on and we will have to prepare to make cuts and reductions in anticipation of another ballot request.
How Much Is The Levy Worth?
The current levy that it would substitute represents 18% of the district’s daily operating budget.
Making It Continuous
It is a zero increase for residents because it will substitute out for a soon-to-expire levy that, if passed, will allow for uninterrupted, continued funding for our schools.
