On Monday, May 7, 2018, the Oak Hills School Board passed a resolution to place a 4.9 mill operating levy on the August 7, 2018 ballot. 

In the wake of recent school safety tragedies, district and building leadership teams have collaborated with local law enforcement agencies and security professionals to assist in identifying increased safety measures to ensure a safe and secure environment for all students and staff. In addition, Mr. Bart West, retired Green Township Police Chief, has been working across the district to provide a full safety audit of all district facilities. Through engagement and assistance from local law enforcement, administrators, staff and student groups, the district is in the final stages of this audit. 

In anticipation of taking immediate action to address high priority and pressing security issues, based on recent community survey feedback and recommendations from Mr. West, the district finds it necessary to go to the voters this August to meet prioritized needs. In addition to safety and security measures, we are also committed to assisting students with psychological and mental health needs.  

The 4.9 mill levy will preserve our financial stability and allow us to implement important safety and security building enhancements as well as mental health interventions.
