On July 20, 2022, the Lakewood Local School District Board of Education approved a resolution to place a renewal levy on the November 8 ballot. The renewal levy will renew two existing District emergency levies, and results in no new taxes for taxpayers.
Passing this renewal levy will not increase taxes for the Lakewood Local Schools community and would place it on a ten-year renewal cycle, meaning the next time this levy would have to be renewed is 2033.
These levies make up 24% of our annual budget and are crucial for us to continue providing great educational and extra-curricular opportunities for our students, while also helping us maintain things like salaries, utilities and maintenance. The District works very hard to spend the money provided by our taxpayers responsibly, as evidenced by revenues exceeding our expenditures in the last fiscal year.”
