Kenston Schools enrollment is down, administrators’ and teachers’ pay is up and the school system so overbuilt that they can no longer pay the bills. (And no one has been teaching for the past year.) Covid — ya know! So they are going to try to make the entire county pay for their lack of foresight.
VOTE NO ON ISSUE #3 KENSTON LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICT – Tax Levy – 6.5 mills – Additional operating expenses and for general permanent improvements
The following is where the taxes go from a taxpayer in the Kenston School District for a $220,000 house. Almost 57% of the property taxes paid currently go to the school system (more than 3X as much as goes to the county).
The following is a breakdown of where the 16.89% that goes to the county from Kenston residents go.
Notice that almost 31% of the money goes to Metzenbaum, which is allegedly decommissioned. The General Fund gets 30% less than Metzenbaum..
