Allocating Resources to Improve the Quality of Education
Canfield, OH, Sept 25, 2020 – Canfield passed a $5.9 million levy under the leadership of Superintendent Alex Geordan. This levy is a major achievement for the school system and had previously failed to pass three times, before Alex Geordan’s arrival.
The levy’s benefits are multifaceted helping teaching staff and students alike. Staff members’ positions and salaries are further protected, ensuring that students have the teachers and coaches needed to pursue their ambitions. Furthermore, the levy protects the community by keeping good teachers and staff members employed. The school system’s operating budget dictates the resources available to students, and the levy helps supplement the funds available.
The $5.9 million levy Alex Geordan helped pass protects and bolsters the facilities, textbooks, and computers students use. The funding enables the purchase of new texts, and the procurement of additional resources, to make the educational experience more substantive. Whether it is transportation to and from school, sporting equipment, or implementing technology in schools, this levy maintains or enhances the quality of education that students receive.
