The Brecksville-Broadview Heights Board of Education Monday night approved a resolution to put a five-year, 5.3-mill levy on the ballot and a resolution to move forward with the approximately $1.5 million of budget cuts proposed by the superintendent.
Superintendent Scot Prebles said the meeting went well, noting that the board also passed a resolution to lower the percent families have to pay for students to participate in athletics and extracurricular activities, which is contingent on the passage of the May levy. If that passes, families will pay 60 percent of those costs, rather than 80 percent.
The board also passed resolutions allowing the superintendent to adjust staffing to address class size at the elementary level, to continue busing for students in kindergarten through 8th grade and to allow the district to apply for a waiver for all-day kindergarten, Prebles said.
Board President George J. Balasko said in an e-mail that all the resolutions passed unanimously.
