Dear Canfield School Residents,
The Canfield Local Schools extends its sincere appreciation to the voters of our school community for approving the school’s request of the 5.9 mill tax issue.
We are grateful that you took the time to research the issue, attend community meetings and understand the school’s need to increase revenue, particularly during this difficult economic period.
The operating revenue, which will become effective in January 2014, will help us continue our tradition of high quality services and wise investments in our students’ achievement. Like our country, state and region, we still have fiscal challenges and need to approach expenditures cautiously, but this revenue will help ensure the fiscal stability our school needs to maintain its quality of instruction and make strategic investments for the future.
The school would also like to extend sincere gratitude to the many volunteers and supporters who worked tirelessly to get the word out and about the importance of this issue. Your involvement demonstrates the passion that Canfield residents feel for this school system and your commitment to making this an outstanding place.
During times like this, many schools are cutting services, allowing buildings to decay and finding it difficult to obtain citizen support for their initiatives. The passage of this issue speaks volumes about how you feel about your school system and your willingness to invest in it when it matters most. Know that we are humbled by this expression of support and trust and are committed to being good stewards of your tax dollars.
Once again, thank you for your support of the Canfield Local Schools.
Alex G. Geordan, Superintendent Canfield Local Schools
