Perrysburg Schools will have an operating levy on the ballot Nov. 6 to replace an expiring levy, which represents 20 percent of the district’s funding.

To support this effort, Citizens for Perrysburg Schools has formed a levy campaign committee chaired by parent Donna Lowery.

“We’re so excited, after months of planning, to begin the public face of our campaign,” stated Donna Lowery. “There’s so much at stake with this levy, and it’s our job to help get the word out to the community. We’re counting on their support.”
