The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools is pursuing a 6.9 mill additional levy on the March 17, 2020 ballot that allocates 5.9 mills for general operations and 1 mill for general permanent improvements throughout the District. The South Euclid Lyndhurst Schools has stretched the current levy by 7 years, which is more than twice as long as the average length of a levy in the District, by responsibly cutting costs and taking advantage of cost avoidance opportunities. Some of those include:
o Utilizing in-house personnel rather than subcontractors
o Renegotiating wise contracts and rightsizing administration
o Reducing our overall energy footprint by more than 35%
In addition, the SEL Schools have outperformed financial forecasts over the last several years as well. This levy will cost the average homeowner in our community an additional $20 per month.
