Declining schools are the start of a self-perpetuating cycle that concludes with a less desirable community. As more affluent homeowners flee – or avoid – the area, property values will drop. Reduced tax revenues will bleed into other public services, which will, in turn, lower property values further, leading to even less tax revenue. And so on.Read Full Opinion
Without this levy our most vulnerable students will have less support when special education aides are reduced. We will not be able to put needed physical and psychological safety in place. Academic achievement will go down as class sizes increase.Read Full Opinion

The school Board and Finance team did an amazing job making the money from the last levy stretch long past the point anyone thought. And I have great confidence that they’ll be able to make this money count. Because quite frankly, we can’t afford to not believe in them.Read Full Opinion
I am proud of our elected officials for showing the courageous leadership to support issue 3. They recognize that strong communities need strong schools. Their support of the schools shows their commitment to Nordonia children and families. I thank them for their endorsement.Read Full Story

A Jan. 15 Kaplan Real-estate education editorial states that having a solid school system can have as much as a 10 percent impact on the value of your home.
There is no need for me to itemize what is at stake in terms of staff reductions, cuts in services, and the like, should the levy go down to defeat, other than to say that your most valuable resource, the children, will lose out.Read Full Opinion
Simply put, homes in communities with strong schools are more attractive to buyers and therefore spend less time on the market, selling easily at higher asking prices. At 6.98 mills, the operating levy on the ballot this May is a small investment to retain the value of all our homes.Read Full Opinion
The reality of school funding will not change. The question is, how long will Nordonia Hills voters take to step up and make a difference?Read Full Opinion
On May 7, voters can choose to support their community’s children with a vote for Issue 3. In the long run, there is no other alternative.
It dismays me when community members say they don’t need the schools, have no use for them or they have no children in the schools so they will be voting “No.” The usual response deals with property values and how they fluctuate depending on school ratings. I would like to offer another response.Read Full Opinion
The youngest members of our community should have a bus ride to school. They should be able to sit at their desk on a rainy day without having to sit next to trash a can that’s catching the rainwater during math class.They shouldn’t be forced to wear a winter jacket during English class, or be dealt a short hand after numerous staff positions are eliminated. That’s what our school children are facing.Read Full Opinion

A Look Inside Our Buildings
Photos from schools across the district that show leaky roofs in many of our buildings. Leaking roofs are not the only issues found in our buildings - old boilers and HVAC systems, dilapidated gym floors and pothole-ridden parking lots are just some of the problems that need addressed. See our Capital Improvements page for a detailed rundown of needed improvements and costs.
