Tuesday, November 6, is a critical election for our Dublin City Schools.
Sign up to volunteer, order a yard sign, host a Levy Conversation Gathering and more.
Right now, our schools are facing critical overcrowding issues. In the fall of 2017, the district’s enrollment exceeded 16,000 for the first time, with 2,400 new students added in the past 10 years. More than 3,000 more are expected in the next 10 years!
November 6, 2018, Dublin City Schools residents will vote on a combined $195 million no-new-millage bond issue, permanent improvement and 5.9 mill operating levy, in order to:
- Provide safety and security upgrades throughout the school districts, including hiring additional mental health experts to provide counseling and identify students who are at risk of violence.
- Build 1 middle school, 2 elementary schools, and expand the high schools to prevent and reduce overcrowding.
- Provide the classroom space needed and maintain the high quality of education we value so much in our community. That means no temporary and costly short-term solutions like classroom trailers.
- Hire more teachers and staff needed for our growing enrollment.
- Upgrade technology and learning spaces so our students are prepared for top colleges and today’s careers.
- Make building improvements and renovate aging schools to ensure our facilities are efficient.
These are important needs. That’s why it is up to us to ensure a strong future for our schools by voting FOR Dublin City Schools on Tuesday, November 6.
