If November vote succeeds, state would pay 47 percent of building project costs in South-Western district

Voters in the South-Western (Ohio) City school district in Columbus will be heading to the polls in November to decide the fate of a $262 million bond issue. By approving a new master facility plan, the district is trying to capitalize on state dollars that would cover 47 percent of the cost of capital projects. The district has a year to win approval before it loses out on the state money. The plans calls for 13 new elementary schools, four new middle schools and a new high school, as well as other renovations and additions.
