Issue 14 November 2023 Operating Levy


With the District's 2014 operating set to expire this year, The Board of Education placed a 6.3 mil renewal operating levy on the November ballot. Since 1992, Groveport Madison Schools has only needed to pass two operating levies. This current operating levy is a renewal of the original operating levy of 2014.
IT IS NOT A TAX INCREASE! Passage of the renewal levy allows the District to continue to collect the same millage rate that is currently in effect to maintain current operations.
What is on the Tuesday, November 7 ballot for Groveport Madison Local Schools?
A renewal of a 6.3 mill operating levy, first passed in 2014. It is not a tax increase. Voters can find it as Issue 14 on their ballot.

How much will my taxes increase?
Not at all. Issue 14 will not increase taxes, it simply renews the 2014 operating levy, providing the same level of funding the District has received since 2014.

What will the renewal levy fund?
The renewal levy would continue to help fund the day-to-day operations of our schools, such as staffing, technology, utilities, supplies, safety and security, etc.

What happens if it passes?
Your taxes won’t increase, but the District can maintain current operations, including current staffing levels, programs, activities and other opportunities for our students.

What happens if it fails?
The District will lose $6 million each year without this operating levy. The District would be unable to continue operations as it is today. Budget reductions would have to be made that would impact current programs and opportunities we provide to students.
