Issue 8 – Levy Information
The Ashtabula Area City Schools have placed a 3.8 mill operating levy on the ballot for May 4th, 2021. AACS has not passed a new operating levy since the year 2000. Without new local funding, AACS will be obligated to make major cutbacks in the 2021-2022 school year. If passed, this levy would generate roughly $1.7 million/year for essential day-to-day operation of our schools, and would cost about $11/month per $100,000 of home value.
