REFERENDUM 2018

Image of the Room to Learn, room to grow, Worthington school district sign.Worthington Schools will hold a one-question referendum on February 13, 2018 that would allow the district to alleviate overcrowding at every grade level by building a new high school and shifting grade configurations at existing buildings.

We have a good problem: schools at every level are full and enrollment increases continue to beat projections. Enrollment has grown each year for the past 10 years, adding 1,100 students, and is expected to continue. Student learning suffers from overcrowding as building capacity is less than 3,000 students, but enrollment is more than 3,200.

We sought community input, and we listened: community members helped evaluate options that would address the problem. The new proposal is different than the 2016 referendum. It is a cost-effective solution and does not include athletic fields.
