If the Beavercreek Schools 6.7 mill levy passes in March, don’t expect to see jobs returning to the schools. Beavercreek Schools announced in a press release that even if the March levy passes, only transportation will be restored. Beavercreek School officials eliminated more than 60 staff positions, 25 tutor positions as well as some transportation when the 6.7 mill levy failed in November.

During efforts to promote the Fall levy, school officials said it would allow continued funding of the schools at current levels for a period of three years. After it’s failure, the district made extensive cuts to staff. Now, four months later, school officials are using the same three year funding argument for passage of the March levy. Some are asking the question that if passage of the Fall levy would have sustained the schools for another three years, then why won’t the jobs return if it passes five months later.
