10 Reasons to Vote for Issue 19
||Issue 19 is for the RIGHT Things. Keeping good teachers, programs and technology is necessary to prepare students for college and jobs–and to protect our investment in Beavercreek.
||Good Schools Keep Beavercreek Beavercreek. They keep property values healthy by attracting and keeping good neighbors and businesses here. |
||More Cuts Will Go Too Far. Despite gaining 1,000 additional students, we have cut 75 staff members, key programs for students of all ages and abilities, and busing for high schoolers.
||Employee Pay and Health Care Cuts Are A Reality. Beavercreek Schools recently reached agreements with employee unions that tie salary increases directly to performance. These agreements also reduce the total cost of the district’s health insurance by 6 percent.
||Statewide Comparisons Show Our District Is Doing VERY Well. Beavercreek is one of only 14 school districts in Ohio to earn all A's and B's AND meet 24 of 24 indicators for proficiency by subject and grade level in the new State Report Card measures.
||To Compete Globally, Our Children Must Achieve More. We can't cut our way to success. Today, better schools are an American necessity.
||The Cost is Reasonable. After 10 years with no new operating levy, 1,000 additional students, and cuts to programs, staff and salaries, the levy will cost just $18.38 per month per $100,000 of appraised property value.
||Accountability is part of the equation. This levy is a fixed-term, fixed income levy that will be on the books for just five years.
||Our district is currently drawing from reserves to pay for a portion of its expenses. This is not a sustainable strategy.
||Issue 19 is a Practical, Personal Investment that Matters to ALL of Us. Quality schools are a primary reason people buy homes in our community. Folks don’t pay good prices where schools are going downhill.
Keep Beavercreek Quality. Now is the Time. Vote For Issue 19.
Voting Begins Oct 1st. Election Day is Nov. 5th.
