Ohio School Board May Ask Voters for Bond Issue
It’s a sure thing that within two years, the Worthington, Ohio, Board of Education will ask voters for both an operating levy and a bond issue to begin to deal with cramped, aging buildings.
The timing and size of that request is still up in the air. If the board follows the recommendations of a community group, the eventual price tag could top $150 million, which doesn’t include regular maintenance and technology upgrades.
“What the board votes to put on the ballot as a bond issue will determine the scope of the project,” said Worthington Superintendent Trent Bowers. The task force recommends spending $46 million on the first phase.
