Letter: Need for a balanced perspective on school levy

Ada Schools will need to regain our trust before we can support any, let alone a permanent, tax levy

Ada Community:
We write not to direct an outcome, but to ensure a balanced perspective. Ada Schools has a levy set for our vote this March. However, it is out opinion that the approach to this levy has thus far proven concerning. The levy is being placed on the ballot as a “continuous renewal”. This means that the tax is essentially permanent. 

Letter: Levy is not a new tax

Monies generated are for general operations

Dear Ada Community:
On March 17, 2020, the Ada School District is seeking a renewal of a .75% income tax levy for a continuing period of time.  This is NOT new tax, but a renewal, which means NO new monies. The monies generated from this levy will be used for general operating expenses.

Letter: We did it!

Ada community now holds a Guinness World Record

WE DID IT! The Ada Community now holds a Guinness World Record. According to Guiness, “The most people throwing an American football simultaneously is ​950​ ​and was achieved by Ada Schools (USA) with the support of Wilson Football Factory, Ohio Northern University and Liberty National Bank in Ada, Ohio, USA on 25 October 2019.”

Gravely concerned about Ada Board of Education decision

Students' courage in showing up at this meeting was most admirable

Dear Community Members:
I remain gravely concerned about the callous decision of the Ada Board
of Education to endorse the elimination of one of the school’s most highly
acclaimed extracurricular programs, over the strenuous objection of 32
citizens at the November 2019 School Board meeting.  

Ada High School Winter Guard was effectively abolished last  August, unbeknownst to the Ada Music Boosters, students, parents, and the wider Ada community.  

Letter: Much about our community is going well

One question I must ask, however, is "What is wrong with our school administration?"

 

Dear Editor and Ada Community:

Much about our community is going well, and I appreciate the hard work and dedication of our public officials and volunteers, organizations, and businesses to make Ada a great place to work and live. One question I must ask, however, is "What is wrong with our school administration?"
