For the owner of an $85,000 home, passage of the bond issue will add approximately $175 a year to their taxes, or $14.50 a month.• Conmittee members have been hard at work, putting up signs, handing out fliers and buttons, and attending one of the many neighborhood coffees that residents are holding throughout the city. During the coffees, a video, produced by the committee, is shown to residents who are not familiar with the crowded and outdated facilities in the school system. According to Chris Goldthorpe, chairman of "Citizens Supporting Excellence in Education", the video enables citizens to see exactly why the school system needs the bond issue. "It is an excellent tool," said Goldthorpe, "for reaching people who have either not been in the schools in a long time or who maybe do not have children in the 'school system. We have had a tremendous response to these coffees and people seem very interested and very concerned about the schools."

Use of those buildings means that students have to go outside to have access to some classes, even during inclement weather. District speech therapists and tiitors have been working with their students in converted closets and storage areas. Things are not any better at the high school level. Hallways and stairs are bumper to bumper (actually shoulder to shoulder) with students. Because of building code requirements, any construction work on the buildings means that standards in that building must be brought up to meet building and fire cede regulations. Following the 1989 passage of the 5.8 mill "Books and Basics" operating levy, the North Canton Board of Education corrmissioned a long range study which involved 100 community persons, staff, students, administrators and board members in an effort to examine all aspects of the school district.
