School levy approved for ballot

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Columbus voters will be asked to fund construction of new school buildings.

The school board voted yesterday to place a bond issue on the November ballot, in an effort to raise $200 million for new schools and technology improvements.

If passed by voters, the levy would mean an additional $40 per year in property taxes to district residents.

A committee will meet next week to decide whether to ask voters for operating funds that could be shared with the city’s charter schools.
