“It looks bigger than levies in the past, but it’s not,” said Libby Aldridge, who is co-chairing the levy campaign with her husband, Michael, a Franklin city councilman. “There is no increase in taxes and it will eliminate another levy next year.”
Aldridge also said this “is not a perpetual levy,” as district officials feel strongly about keeping its promises to the taxpayers and continue to be accountable.

She said the district has kept its promises to the taxpayers to keep its buildings functional and safe which includes the numerous safety upgrades such as the construction of safety vestibules, installing security camera systems, and the addition of a full-time school resource officer.
She said the district moving to a more technology-based learning created the savings in the budget to afford the new school resource officer and security upgrades.
“A good school system is important to the community whether you have kids in school or not,” Aldridge said.
