No School: Tuesday, November 2 Election Day!

School Levy Information


Don’t forget that Tuesday, November 2 is election day! Issue 68, the renewal levy for Strongsville City Schools, is on the ballot. This is a renewal levy which means no new taxes and the opportunity to provide financial stability for our District for at least the next five years. Strong school districts don’t happen by themselves. It takes strong support from the community, including engaged partnerships with families and local businesses, to become the very best for our students. We are grateful for our community’s past support and hope that our current efforts have earned your continued trust. CLICK HERE for a video message about Issue 68 from SCS Superintendent Dr. Cameron Ryba.
