Letter to the Editor: Vote YES on Issue 1 in Bay Village

It won’t be long now until our Bay Village community decides whether it wants to remain an “A” school district, or slip and become a “B” school district, or worse.

It is a fact that our Bay Village schools have been doing more with less for many years. Our schools consistently spend $1,000 to $2,000 less per student than other neighboring districts in our county and we still achieve excellent results. Excellent teachers want to live and work here, just as we want to live here. They make about county average for doing some of the best work in the county. Our school board does an outstanding job managing resources for the district.

However, Bay Village has reached a tipping point, and I am worried. If our schools begin to slide, one of the best reasons to move to Bay Village will become a non-factor, and home prices will begin to fall. 

It is time to invest in our community. People should remember that despite all of the anti-tax ads on television right now, school taxes benefit our community's children and stay in our hometown! Please vote YES on Issue 1.
