Chardon Local School District
3.9 mil  Continuing Operating Levy

 Election Day - May 8, 2018


  • Voters defeated the district's Nov. 2017 levy request, which results in the district not collecting 2.5 million in much needed tax revenue in 2018
  • The Board of Education will be making over $1 million in cuts to programs, services and personnel in order to balance the 2018 budget. Even with those cuts, a new levy is still needed to ensure the district's long-term fiscal solvency.
  • State funding for Chardon School has decreased over the last several years, due in large part to the phase out of the Tangible Personal Property Tax (TPP) reimbursement. Chardon is losing approximately one million dollars per year due to this phaseout 

  • The levy will fund day-to-day operations of the school district including classroom instruction, student support, technology, professional development, transportation, textbooks, utilities, and personnel costs
  • The cost of the levy will be approximately $11 per month (approximately $136 per year) for each $100,000 of market value
