Now that the details of the district's proposed permanent improvement levy are hashed out, North Canton City Schools Board of Education will meet this morning to wrap up some "remaining legislation" needed to get the 2.4 mill permanent improvement levy on the May ballot.
Board members will meet at 7:30 a.m. in the district's conference room for the special meeting and consider adopting "a resolution submitting to the electors of the North Canton City School District the question of an additional tax levy for the purpose of general permanent improvements to Section 5705.21 of the Revised Code, Enclosure A."
The continuous levy would generate about $1.44 million annually and cost the owner of a $100,000 home $73 per year.
“Our infrastructure is in serious need of attention, but there are limited funds to address this issue,” Superintendent Michael Hartenstein told the Akron Beacon Journal last week. “We are also behind on technology. We must give our students a 21st century education with 21st century tools.”
