This past week we attended the Springboro City School Board Meeting on May 11, 2010. The meeting included many teachers and parents who stood up to speak for a new levy that in their minds MUST be proposed to the City. The most recent school levy was last year May 2009. That levy was defeated by 137 votes.
The School Board has recently conducted a City survey that polled the opinions of the city on a new school levy. Those results will be discussed at the May 25 School Board Meeting. This survey is to assist the district on whether or not the city is prepared for a new levy.
The School Board and City are definitely divided. With last year's close defeat and the School Board splitting on votes to bring the levy to the ballot this year Springboro is certainly a City that is divided.
What are your thoughts? As a new media and information source in Springboro we want to strive to be the Voice in Springboro. That voice being the residents of the community. Comment below on how you feel about a potential new levy.
