There Are Two Parts to the May 2, 2017 Levy
A bond issue totaling $30 million or 2.5 mills
Addresses the immediate and urgent needs over the next few years for boilers, roofs, technology, ADA, and similar repairs
A permanent improvement levy of 1.25 mills
Provides $1.0 million per year allowing the District to plan for capital improvements and repairs
Significantly reduces the need to ask Shaker voters for more capital funds
In total, the 3.75 mills increases taxes $11 per month per $100,000 in home property value.The Committee for Shaker Schools is the campaign organization that works to support Shaker Heights School District and assist in passing district levies.
