Upon further review: Beavercreek school levy passes

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) — A suburban Dayton school district will be able to restore some of the programs it cut after a recount showed its school levy passed by a slim margin in last month's election.

A recount Thursday pushed Beavercreek schools' 6.3-mill levy over the top by 31 votes.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/IUCDnA ) reports that the levy was failing on election night by 29 votes, but the results turned in favor of the district after provisional and absentee ballots were counted.

The new levy will raise around $10.4 million annually for operating expenses. Four previous operating levies have failed in the district in the past 2 ½ years.

Voters around the state passed about 60 percent of the school levies on the November ballot.
