Cincy-School Board

Two members say they will oppose levy

Two members of Cincinnati's school board say they will oppose a 65 million dollar tax levy renewal unless the district does a better job of controlling costs. They say the district is wasting money, and has not fulfilled promises it made during a levy campaign four years ago. That includes basing teachers' pay on the academic performance of students. School officials say a levy defeat would force cuts of more than 32 million dollars next school year. This year's general fund budget for Cincinnati Public Schools was 436 million dollars.
