Election 2013: Kent Schools put 8.9 Mill Levy on May Ballot

If approved, levy would generate $4.25 million per year

Election 2013: Kent Schools put 8.9 Mill Levy on May Ballot

Kent voters will be asked to approve an 8.9-mill operating levy request from Kent City Schools.

The continuing operating levy, Issue 8 on the ballot, would raise $4.25 million per year for the school district.

It would cost the owner of a house valued at $100,000 for tax purposes $272.56 per year.

This year marks the first year ever that the district earned the highest possible rating from the  Ohio Department of Education on the latest state report cards measuring school success.

Data published in October by the ODE shows Kent schools earned an "Excellent with Distinction" rating — the highest of six possible ratings issued by the state.
