March Ballot Issue: Know the Facts
Olentangy Schools

Updated March 8th, 2024
Members of the Olentangy Schools district leadership team joined the principal of every school for a co-hosted Community Conversation in January and February. These Community Conversations were levy-focused, providing an opportunity for community members to learn facts and ask questions about the upcoming levy and bond issue. If you missed the informational sessions, watch the recording of the Virtual Community Conversation from March 5 and view this community Q&A.

Olentangy has been one of the fastest-growing school districts in Ohio for more than 20 years and is now the fourth-largest school district in the state, serving 23,943 students in 27 schools. The March ballot issue will help address the facility needs for the additional 5,000 students anticipated to enroll in Olentangy Schools over the next ten years.

Olentangy Schools will be on the March ballot due to continued enrollment growth. Frequently asked questions are being addressed in board meetings and at Community Conversations, and answers to these questions are continuously added to the levy information web page. We strongly encourage all voters and members of our community to learn the facts about the ballot issue.

To address the forecasted 20% student enrollment growth over the next ten years, Olentangy Schools will be on the March 19, 2024 ballot with a combined 4.25-mill levy that includes three parts:

  • A "no additional millage" bond package that authorizes the district to seek up to $350 million in bond proceeds to construct five new schools;
  • 3.00 continuing operating mills; and
  • 1.25 continuing permanent improvement mills
