The Barberton Board of Education will be placing a levy on the August 7th ballot to raise $3 million-dollars.
The board members voted unanimously Monday to request a five-year, 8.5 mill emergency levy, that would cost the owner of a $100,000 home about $260-dollars a year.
Barberton Superintendent Patricia Cleary says if the levy fails, it will deeply impact the students.

"If we have to cut more, it will severely impact the students in Barberton," Cleary stated.
"We've made cut after cut trying to not affect the classroom, but if the levy fails we will have to go into the classroom."
The district's attempt at a levy failed in November.
Possible reductions in Barberton could include reductions in busing, pay-to-play plans for athletics and other extracirricular activities.
The district plans on having a series of meetings to obtain feedback from the public on what the levy means for the schools and the community as a whole.
