Board of Education no longer considering reallocation of inside millage - February 20th hearing canceled.
The Independence Board of Education is no longer considering reallocation of inside millage.  Therefore, the February 20th hearing is canceled. Ohio law requires each district to submit a tax budget in January of each year.  Our district was able to file for an extension until February 20th while considering the reallocation of inside millage, which would have provided increased funding for permanent improvements with an increase to our taxpayers.  

After further study, debate, deliberation and input from community members, the board has chosen to forgo any change in inside millage.  In the months ahead, the District will further refine its 5 Year Capital Improvement Plan and funding options to improve our facilities.  When completed, the plan will be presented to the community as part of a levy campaign for voter approval that will ultimately allow the District’s facilities to be modernized and brought up to Independence community standards. 

The Board wishes to express its sincere thanks and appreciation to all citizens who took the time to share their thoughts regarding the District’s permanent improvement plans, funding challenges, and inside millage. Although the public hearing on February 20th has been canceled, the board will hold its regular monthly meeting at 7 pm on the same date.  We hope to see you there.
