North Canton City School District officials are considering a permanent improvement levy to update buildings and improve the district's aging buses.
The Akron Beacon Journal recently reported said Superintendent Michael Hartenstein came to the Board of Education with the request to consider the levy, saying nearly 75 percent of Ohio schools have a replacement levy, while North Canton has never had one.
“Our infrastructure is in serious need of attention, but there are limited funds to address this issue,” Hartenstein said in the Beacon. “We are also behind on technology. We must give our students a 21st century education with 21st century tools.”
The school board will discuss the proposed levy at a special meeting for 7 p.m. Jan. 22.
