(Toledo, OH) Several northwest Ohio school districts are asking voters for money today.

Meantime, Maumee school officials are hoping there's more support for their first levy request since 2014, when the issue passed by just 200 votes.

The Eastwood school district is asking voters to support a permanent improvement replacement levy. 

Bowling Green city schools taking a second chance to ask voters to approve a $72 million bond issue to rehab and rebuild schools. 

The Liberty-Benton school district has two levy renewals on the ballot, for operations and won't mean any new money, raising $1.4 million annually to replace school buses and other big-ticket items.
