Willard schools asking voters to renew levy in May

School officials will ask district residents in May to renew a 5-year, 1.2 million emergency operating levy.

The 5.4 mill levy, which has been on the books for the past 10 years, doesn't ask for any new money. District residents who own a $100,000 home pay $165.38 a year, Huron County Auditor Roland Tkach said.

"This levy is used to fund many different educational options and activities throughout the district," school officials said in a press release. "It is currently being used to fund all aides not required by law (mainly at Central Elementary), our performing arts program, art and language programs, agricultural education, family consumer science, athletics, high school business and smaller class sizes at the elementary level. The passage of this levy is crucial to our district to continue to be able to offer all of these programs."
