New Philadelphia, Ohio (WTUZ) – New Philadelphia school district is taking steps to place a five-year renewal on the November ballot. 

This levy is for general operating expenses within the New Philadelphia School system.

Superintendent David Brand explains that if voters approve, there would not be any new taxes.

“The board has to [approve] three resolutions in order to put the levy on in November. There will be one more action that the board has to take. It will be a renewal, no additional taxes, and for general operating expenditures.”

The money would go toward costs for instructional material, personnel, and utilities.

Brand notes that this levy collects about $1.8 million and, if voters turn it down, it would create a funding gap in the New Philadelphia District.

The school board is waiting on the official ballot language from the State Auditor. - Mary Alice Reporting
