ONTARIO, OH - The Ontario Local School District Levy has passed with 1772 votes for versus 1582 against. 

The 6.9 million five year operating levy will go towards maintaining daily operations in schools, which include teachers in the classroom, utilities, technology and educational programs. 

The district originally went 13 years without additional operating dollars. 

Lisa Carmichael, Superintendent at Ontario City School shared the following statement with WMFD after hearing that the levy passed:

"On behalf of the Ontario Board of Education, we'd like to thank our community for passing this levy. This levy will allow the district to preserve and maintain the education it offers, and it will ensure that our schools remain in solid fiscal health for years to come.

We are grateful for the support of our parents and community members and we will continue to operate in a lean manner, while providing educational programs and opportunities to students that will prepare them for college, career, and life."

Amy Hiner, Levy Campaign Chairperson, also shared the following statement:

"There are so many people to thank for this success; among those are the outstanding volunteers and supporters that worked so hard to inform our community and pass this levy. Our Ontario Schools belong to all of us and I am thrilled the community has given us this opportunity to maintain our excellent schools. "
