Hundreds of community and business leaders were assembled by the board to find the best path forward. This process has been going on for nearly 2 years, so it is not out of the blue. (Loveland Board of Education asks for combined 16.78-mill levy)
Classrooms are overcrowded and don’t have the necessary modernization to educate our future leaders of the community. The 21st Century workforce will be vastly different than it is today and we need to prepare our most valuable assets, children, to be at the forefront of our community, city, state, and country.
The cost to do nothing is higher than the cost of this levy.
Saying no to our children is not acceptable to me. I want my children to have more than I did. My child is 16 and will not see the benefits of this project. My neighbors’ kids will be the beneficiaries and I plan to vote for them and support this levy. Supporting this levy secures our community’s future and makes investments that pay higher dividends. Investment in education has been shown to increase economic growth and stability. I love my community and want to invest in the future. The time is now!
