I’m pleased to inform you that voters approved both Issues 9 and 10 for Worthington Schools. These issues will enable our schools to keep up with growing student enrollment and will maintain the programs we all value in our schools.
The bond issue will provide funds to repair and expand our middle schools, as well as provide important funding to make improvements to other school buildings, replace technology, and buy new buses. The operating issue will maintain current operations and programs in our schools as our enrollment continues to increase.
Our success would not be possible without the help of many parents, community members and staff. These volunteers worked tirelessly to get factual information into the hands of voters over the last few months.
We will now begin to implement Phase 1 of our master facilities plan, which includes expansion and repairs to our middle schools, beginning the design process on Thomas Worthington High School renovations, and shifting an elementary school feeder to Worthington Kilbourne High School to balance enrollment. Our plan is to make sure the community remains involved in this process as we plan for the future of our schools. Over the next few months you should look for communication from the district on specific information relating to timelines and processes for these changes to occur.
We greatly appreciate the support of our community and will continue to focus on our mission to empower a community of learners who will change the world!
- Trent Bowers, Superintendent
