Toledo schools eye big cuts after levy defeat

TOLEDO, OHIO: School officials in one of Ohio's largest cities say the latest defeat at the ballot box is likely to mean broad cutbacks.

Toledo school board member Brenda Hill tells The Blade the district could shrink from six high schools to two.

Other Ohio school systems also are under pressure because of tax issues rejected on Tuesday. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports the Lakota Schools — the state's seventh-largest district — will drop high school busing following the fifth levy defeat in six tries.

But the Kettering district near Dayton cut the size of a levy that was turned down in May and won approval from voters this time. The superintendent tells the Dayton Daily News the tax revenue will save busing, teaching jobs and extracurricular activities.
