Three Nordonia Hills, Stow-Munroe Falls & Woodridge School District Levy Addition measures were on the November 8, 2011 ballot in the school districts of Nordonia, Stow-Munroe Falls and Woodridge which are in Summit County. The Stow-Munroe school district is also in Portage County.

The Nordonia Hills measure (Issue 18) sought to add to the current school levy by a rate of 6 mills for a continuing period of time in order to continue to pay for current expenses in the school district.[1]

  • YES 8,220 (56.2%)Approveda
  • NO 6,407 (43.8%)

The Stow-Munroe Falls measure (Issue 20) sought to add to the current school levy by a rate of 6.57 mills for a period of ten years for a total of $65,000,000 in order to allow continued salary increases for staff, expand busing to those within 2 miles of the schools, lessen the amount of pay-to-play sporting game fees, provide free field trips and keep school buildings open past the educational daytime for extra-curricular activities. The normal levy renewals will still take place in 2012 and 2014 whether the new levy passes or not. A budget deficit has not been projected if the new levy fails as long as the renewal levies pass (Stow-Munroe has never rejected a renewal levy). This new levy was already rejected by a majority vote 60%/40% in August 2011, but Summit County allows districts to ignore previous 'against' votes in order to place the levy again on the ballots at the request of the Board of Education. This is a retroactive tax levy, therefore voters are voting on whether to increase their taxes from January 1, 2011. The increase will be between 20% to 30% of what each person's tax bill will be in February 2012 if voter's pass the levy. An exact figure cannot be given by the Summit County Fiscal Office until December due to finalization of the property evaluations.[2]
