Lima City School officials held a school levy meeting Wednesday afternoon. They focused on the most effective ways for students and faculty to get involved in the promotion of the levy.
School district officials say students and staff at LCS desperately need the school levy for new money to pass come November. Superintendent Karel Oxley says the staff at LCS have not taken raises, some have even taken pay cuts.
Over three million dollars in state budget cuts has affected student programs as well, and that's why they're getting involved. Students are hoping to promote the levy via social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.
Despite the cuts, students continue to excel. Superintendent Karel Oxley says if the levy is passed, nothing can hamper the progress of its students.
"Just today we gave away over $2 million dollars in scholarships to our students."
The cost of the levy and how much money it will raise has not been determined.
