Latest updates from the campaign:

We asked and they listened!  

If you believe our elected officials have an obligation to pass a funding plan that is more equitable we encourage you to support the Ohio Fair School Funding plan.  Chardon Local Schools superintendent Dr. Mike Hanlon participated in the process and believes it is in the best interest for our district.  Check out the plan here

Our voices were heard.  Here is some background on how the Citizens for Chardon Schools committee was involved in encouraging our elected officials to create a fair funding plan.  

Citizens for Chardon Schools hosted a Community Forum on Ohio’s School Funding with our State Legislators on January 18, 2017 at 7:00 PM in the Chardon Schools Board of Education Meeting Room, 428 North St. Chardon.
State funding for Chardon Schools has decreased over the last several years, due in large part to the phase out of the Tangible Personal Property Tax (TPP) reimbursement. The Chardon Schools is losing approx. $1 million dollars per year due to this phase-out, while the District's 3.9 mill operating levy was defeated by voters in November 2017.
Here is a News Herald article summarizing the information that was learned during that meeting.  

Our biggest take away is that additional state funding is not coming to help support our schools.  We need local support and dollars to keep our high preforming schools as a community asset.  Our May 8th levy is critical so that we can continue to provide a high quality education for our kids.  Strong schools = strong community
