The Beavercreek school renewal levy passed with support from about 74 percent of voters, according to unofficial final counts from the Greene County Board of Elections.

The district is partially in Montgomery County, too. Both Montgomery County precincts are also in, according to the board of elections, with 163 in favor of the levy out of 204 counted.

The school district asked voters to approve an 8.7-mill renewal levy, after they rejected two levy requests in 2020.

This levy generates $18.5 million per year — 18% of Beavercreek City Schools’ operating budget.

The district was prepared to implement a roughly $8.5 million cuts package in summer 2021 if voters rejected the renewal levy.
