Principal's Post

Hello Parkwood Parents,


When there is a levy on the ballot, we receive lots of information and often wonder, "How does this impact my child's school?" I would like to take a moment to provide you with information as to the programs and services at Parkwood that are dependent upon the renewal levy.


This zero tax increase renewal levy would allow us to maintain the status quo of all programs and services currently in place.


However, without the renewal levy, the following changes at Parkwood would take place:

* Physical Education classes would be eliminated.

* Art classes would be eliminated.

* Music classes would be eliminated.

* Library classes would be eliminated.

* Skills Lab classes would be eliminated.

* Field Trips would be eliminated.

* Transportation would be eliminated for any family within a two mile radius of Parkwood.

* Kindergarten would be changed to half day.


Your child's school experience would look drastically different than it does now. Beavercreek Schools have historically provided these valuable programs and services above state minimum requirements.


Each of the programs and services listed above to be eliminated or reduced also represent staff members who would lose their jobs or incur reduction.


Early voting on the renewal levy begins today, Tuesday, April 6th and Election Day is on May 4th if you would like to vote in person.



Sincerely,

Sue Bamford
