BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (WDTN) - The Beavercreek Board of Education pulled its 6.7 mill levy from the August ballot.
Board President Al Nels says "the vote to pull the levy should not be interpreted as an indicator that the financial needs of the district have changed."
"We are still in deficit spending, still drawing from our reserves to cover operations, even after more than $13 million in cuts and cost saving measures, but there are a lot of unknowns in the state funding picture and we hope to have further clarity before the filing deadline for the November election in early August," said Nels. "I fully expect the Board to consider an issue for the November ballot in July."
It is unclear right now how Beavercreek Schools will fare under the new two-year state budget. A full vote by the State Senate is expected in June.
The district saw its state aid revenue cut by 28-percent in the last two years. It has made $13-million in cuts and cost-saving measures over the same time period.
"If Beavercreek Schools do not secure additional operating funds in the near future, our district will be forced to make cuts the likes of which we've never seen-cuts that will have a dramatic impact on the education our students receive," said Nels. "State oversight could become a very real possibility."
