Issue 37


  • Residents in the Lorain City School District will vote on ISSUE 37 on Tuesday, November 2, 2021.

  • ISSUE 37 is a 6.8 operating levy which would generate $4.1 million annually for operating expenses, beginning January 1, 2022. 

  • Our school district is projecting a $13 million budget deficit for fiscal year 2023, making this levy critical to the educational program in Lorain.

  • ISSUE 37 will cost the average homeowner less than $10 a month.

  • ISSUE 37 will ensure our schools can continue its current trajectory of educational supports for our children.

  • FAILURE of this levy would require:

Drastic cuts to teachers, instructional aides and instructional materials — all of which are critically needed by our students to succeed in school. 

  • Residents of Lorain are stepping up to continue their support of our students and families right when it is needed most:

    • as our school district moves beyond Academic Distress, finally returning local control to our school board where it belongs;

    • as our community recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic; and

    • as our district continues to be respectful of taxpayer dollars through best practices backed by research and checks and balances that ensure a high quality education through transparent, cost effective means.

The City of Lorain is known for its long-standing support of the children and families of Lorain. Thank you for continuing to demonstrate that OUR KIDS MATTER.
