Oak Hills releases list of cuts if November levy fails

DELHI TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

The Oak Hills Local School District released a list of potential cuts should the 5-year levy not pass in November's general election.

It's a 5-year levy for a millage of 4.82 that would generate $5.3 million a year. If it fails, administrators say 53.5 positions would be eliminated district-wide.

"Instruction, learning and opportunities for kids will look much different in Oak Hills schools, and not for the better," Superintendent Todd Yohey said.

According to a release sent Thursday, Oak Hills High School would go from seven bells each day to six. There would be larger class sizes at elementary schools, middle schools and Oak Hills High School.

In addition, there would be a significant reduction in time and resources allocated for intervention. The district says students looking to participate in after-school activities would face an increase in pay-to-play fees by $75 with no family cap.

Voters shot down the same levy in the Oak Hills Local School District last May.
