Trebein Tribune

April 2021

A Note from our Principal, Mrs. Walk

Hello Trebein 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 Trebein 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 Trebein 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 Trebein.

* 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 on April 6th and Election Day is on May 4th if you would like to vote in person.


Thank you,


Lisa Walk

Community Forums

Our district will hold one more community forum to share information regarding school funding, how school funding impacts Ohio schools and specifically Beavercreek City Schools, Beavercreek data compared to similar districts, and information about the May levy. In addition, we will provide a portion of the forum to serve as a Q&A session regarding topics related to the district. This final forum will be held in the BHS Auditorium on April 13 from 7:00- 8:30 p.m. and will be live-streamed, recorded, and available for viewing through the district website.
