The district has created a new website that is simplified and focuses only on the essentials during this school closure time. 

Genoa Area Kiwanis has decided to postpone our annual Easter Egg Hunt originally scheduled for early April. We are hoping that we'll be able to host the event once the Covid-19 pandemic is over.

5.0 Mill Operating Levy Renewal on March 17th ballot

A 5.0 mill operating levy RENEWAL for a continuing period of time will be on the March 17, 2020 ballot for voter consideration.  This operating levy was initially passed 30 years ago in November 1990.  As this is not a new tax, the passage of this levy will NOT result in a tax increase to local taxpayers.   Please consider voting on March 17th.    

The following is an example of the Levy Renewal ballot language on the March 17th ballot:

A renewal of a tax for the benefit of the Genoa Area Local School District, Ottawa County, Ohio, for the purpose of current operating expenses for the School District, at a rate not exceeding five (5.00) mills for each one dollar of valuation, which amounts to fifty cents ($0.50) for each one hundred dollars of valuation, for a continuing period of time, commencing in 2020, first due in calendar year 2021.
