Bay Village Citizens for Transparency
FACT: 74% of Bay Village property tax goes to the district
You have a right to direct how your money is being spend. The average Cuyahoga County property tax for school expenditures is 60%, but in Bay Village, the district gets even more, 74%!
The District is Discussing a Levy
Based on the May 10, 2021 Finance Committee meeting minutes, the Board is considering a levy.
The District is Operating in the Red
The district reports financial data to the Ohio Department of Education. Districts must submit their financial statements and their five-year forecast each year.
We pulled the submitted financial data from 2010 forward. The district operated in a surplus position from 2011 - 2018. In fact, in 2018, it had it largest surplus - $2.6M!
Despite having a record surplus year in 2018, the district began to operate in the RED in 2019. Jodi Hausman was hired mid-year in 2018. Coincidence?
