election2020

 

The Troy City Schools will have a 0.25-percent earned income tax levy on the Nov. 3 ballot.

  • In the past two years, the state of Ohio has cut more than $1.7 million in funding from the Troy City Schools, with more state funding cuts coming. 

  • The district has responded by cutting 15 positions for a savings of more than $1 million, while also freezing salaries and reducing spending.

  • This levy will cost someone who makes $50,000 per year approximately $2.40 per week. 

  • This will be the first time the district has asked for new operating revenue in 14 years, since 2006. 

  • This tax will be on earned income tax only. It will NOT affect property taxes. 

 

This levy would cover the district’s operational costs and allow it to maintain the following programs and resources:

  • All-day kindergarten

  • Full-time guidance counselors in all of our buildings

  • Current transportation levels for our students

  • Current levels of course offerings for students

  • 1-to-1 student Chromebooks 

  • Extra and co-curricular activities
