Cincinnati school board votes to put levy renewal on ballot

A 65-point-two million-dollar, five-year levy renewal for Cincinnati schools will be on the November ballot despite opposition from two school board members. Melanie Bates and Rick Williams were the two Cincinnati school board members who voted last night against putting the levy on the ballot. They said the board should first demonstrate that it has been responsible with taxpayer dollars. Both have said that they will campaign against the levy renewal unless the school system makes some major changes in its operations. The board's 5-to-2 vote to put the renewal on the ballot comes less than a week after voters rejected about three-fourths of the 103 school levies on ballots across the state. Board members supporting the levy renewal say it is essential to continue programs that have produced demonstrable gains in student achievement.
