Scroll down for the Community Presentations from October 14 and September 30.
To keep our schools strong and moving forward, the Fairview Park City Schools Board of Education voted to place a new, continuing operating levy on the ballot this November.
We thank the community for the support of the bond issue/permanent improvement levy in 2016 which was fully dedicated to the recently-completed district facilities project (on time and on budget), and the operating renewal in 2018, which maintained prior levels of funding (did not generate an increase in taxes or revenue for the district).
What Happens if the levy fails? You can expect major changes to reduce a $1.6M deficit, including:
TRANSPORTATION FOR STUDENTS (PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOLS) WILL BE REDUCED TO THE STATE MINIMUM EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1. ONLY STUDENTS WHO LIVE TWO MILES OR MORE FROM THEIR SCHOOL WILL RECEIVE TRANSPORTATION.
OVER A DOZEN TEACHERS, STAFF, AND ADMINISTRATORS WILL BE ELIMINATED BY THE START OF THE 2021-22 SCHOOL YEAR. CLASS SIZES K-12 WILL DRAMATICALLY INCREASE, GOING FROM ABOUT 20:1 to 30:1.
