~ BALLOT ~
Why does Mansfield City Schools
have a levy on the Nov. 5 ballot?
The district is seeking to replace funds lost when a five-year levy renewal was defeated last year.
The Nov. 5 levy would raise the same $4 million annually that the previous one did. The current levy request is separate from the levy renewal approved in May.
Both levies are necessary to meet local funding needs.

Since 2010 Mansfield City Schools has cut approximately $4 million from the general fund expenditures, including the elimination of five central office administrators.

WHAT A NO
Loss of local control of
our schools is possible
If the Auditor of State were to move the district into “fiscal emergency,” a state-appointed board could supercede the authority of our Board of Education and decide spending cuts to stay within available resources.
The result could be the:
- Loss of a significant number of teachers
- Larger class sizes at all levels
- The elimination of:
co-curricular programs like
Music, Art, AP, Career Tech, etc.
extracurricular programs like
Sports, Music, Clubs, etc.
