Indian Creek levy deserves support

Residents in the Indian Creek Local School District face an easy choice when they cast their ballots in the Nov. 3 election.

The district is asking them to renew its 7.9-mill operating levy for another five years. They should say yes.

Money generated from the levy goes to cover the district’s day-to-day operating expenses, which include everything from salaries to textbooks and computers — in short, what is needed to ensure the district’s schools can continue to function efficiently.

Without the $3,043,594 that comes annually from the levy, district officials certainly would face a hardship, according to Superintendent T.C. Chappelear.

That money, he adds, allows the district to provide the services that its students deserve and have come to expect.

And, since the levy is a renewal, it would not lead to a higher tax bill for residents of the district.

Educators have a tough job, one that has been made even more challenging because of the changes that have been put into place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The women and men who work in Indian Creek are able to continue to provide a quality education because of the continued support of voters.

There’s no reason why that backing should not continue ­– and every reason why Indian Creek’s levy should be renewed on Nov. 3.
