CANFIELD SCHOOLS Officials to launch levy campaign



Published: Thu, September 5, 2002 @ 12:00 a.m.



A financial review committee will be formed to issue reports to the community.

CANFIELD -- School officials are ready to kick off their campaign for the 6.9-mill, five-year additional school operating levy.

Superintendent Dante Zambrini said officials were waiting for school to start before kicking off the campaign.

He stressed, however, that officials have been planning the campaign for the last several weeks.

The levy that will appear on the ballot this November also appeared on the May ballot and failed.

Zambrini said the theme of the campaign is "being informed." The campaign calls for volunteers to lead meetings in their neighborhoods about the district's financial situation.

The volunteers will have information about district finances.

"You can't make a good decision in voting if you don't have all the facts," Zambrini said.

Purpose of meetings

The meetings will focus on how Canfield schools have been affected by cuts in state funding, Zambrini said.

Two public forums also will be held during the campaign so that local residents can ask school officials questions about the district's finances.

Zambrini noted that the school board also is looking for volunteers with backgrounds in finance to serve on a district financial review committee.

The committee would meet three times each year and issue reports to the community about the district's finances, Zambrini said.

"We will be good stewards of every dollar," he said.

"We are using our money wisely. We have proven that we provide a quality education."
