Most traditions you may participate in are enjoyable and delightful, such as specific family events or trips with friends. Other traditions can be less pleasant, or even become a joke. For example, here at Field, the semi-annual “passing of the levy” that often gets laughed at and joked over because there is such a small possibility of it actually passing at the elections. In fact, Field Local Schools hasn’t passed a levy since 1991! So there is reason to believe we won’t pass one any time soon.
According to the Field Levy Committee, ” the vote failed by 1335 votes, a larger margin than the last levy.”
In all seriousness, the school has reached a critical point when it comes to finance. When the levy goes back on the ballot, in November, it is imperative that it is passed.
The frustration is causing a lot of tension in the community as people just want the best quality of education that they can get for their children.
One parent of a student at Field anonymously said, “Doesn’t anyone understand what our kids are losing? I am seriously disgusted with all the folks who can’t think of anyone besides themselves. Our kids deserve better!”
