Will Norwalk school's levy be pulled off May ballot?

District faced with decision following possible funding increase under Gov. John Kasich's new plan.

Could Norwalk City Schools pull its proposed levy off the May ballot and go for a different one in November?

That's the dilemma the district faces since Norwalk could receive as much as an 8.02 percent increase in funding over the next two years under Gov. John Kasich's new plan. Under the proposal, the district could receive $867,767 for fiscal year 2014. The funding plan requires committee review and testimony, passage in both house and Kasich's signature.

Superintendent Dennis Doughty said the governor's funding solution isn't entirely positive.

Truth or Fiction

So Norwalk and Sandusky get money from the State but other districts are left to fend for themselves. Where's the fairness?

IMO, the timing matters little.

Mr. Doughty needs to put the "fear of God" into the voters with "fire and brimstone."

Let 'em know the worsening scenarios of what Plans B, C, et al. could look like if this and/or future levies fail.

His releasing of “Plan A” was too timid and read too technical. Sell the reduction of community benefits, not the loss of features.
