  Original Published: 9/4/2013The Galion Board of Education met Tuesday night to discuss raising awareness among parents for several topics, from the effectiveness of their digital learning solutions to their "Restore the Roar" campaign. The levy committee, teachers, parents and community members discussed plans on how to gain voter support for the 9.4-mill, five year additional tax that will appear on the November ballot. The group agreed that social media, signs, and flyers are needed to educate the public about why the levy is needed. The levy would generate about $1.2 million annually, and cost the owner of a $100,000 home a little more than $27 a month. The levy failed for the third time in the August Special Election. In other business the board unanimously agreed that there needs to be more public discussion of their digital learning program, as some concerned parents don't see the value of the program.
