The Bottom Line…So what is this levy all about?

There is no debating the quality of our schools and the value our schools bring to the community. In a district like Madeira property taxes make up 70% of the district revenue. The district last asked for an increase in taxes five years ago. The district has taken aggressive steps in reducing expenditures, however the loss of state and federal funding has been dramatic. To continue the current programs and services provided to the community of Madeira, the district must seek more revenue from its public or face budget cuts impacting programs and services. Voting for the levy will help keep Madeira Schools’ tradition of excellence going.

One unquestionable fact is that the Madeira School District provides to the community a strong and rigorous education for its students. Below are just some of the many accomplishments that we all can be proud of:

 

  • Excellent” rating from the Ohio Department of Education for twelve consecutive years
  • $5.5 million dollars were earned in scholarships for the class of 2011
  • 2011 Performance Index – Highest in District history and 7th highest ranking in the state
  • 2011 College Board recognized Madeira High School with the AP Achievement Award for increased participation and achievement in Advanced Placement classes
  • 2011 Newsweek Magazine recognized Madeira High School in the annual list of America’s top high schools
  • 2009 Cincinnati Magazine selected Madeira High School as one of the outstanding high school(s) for achievement in language arts
  • 2008 US News and World Report named Madeira High School one of the top high schools in the country In 2011 the Ohio Achievement Assessments (OAA) ranked Madeira Middle School top 10 in the state in 7th grade reading and top 15 in 8th grade science
  • 2008 Madeira Elementary received the U.S. Dept. of Education Blue Ribbon Award

The success of the school district is based on the relationship it has with the community. Likewise, the town of Madeira has been successful in part because of a strong school district. It’s been commonly said, “People move here for the schools, and stay for the community.” As the success of our district is recognized, so is the strength of our community and citizens, as reflected by Cincy Magazine recently naming Madeira Cincinnati’s top suburb
