Issue 5 Timeline

  • On November 6, 2018, Dublin City Schools registered voters approved Issue 5, a ballot initiative designed to address the District's rapid enrollment growth, as well as maintenance and upgrades at existing facilities.

    Since 2007, the District has added more than 3,000 students and more than 3,000 are expected over the next 10 years. Below is a general timeline of some of the large scale Issue 5 projects and some associated items.

    The District recently completed a build-out study that indicates our enrollment growth will continue until about 2036. You can view the build-out study at this link.

    Below is the timeline in place for upcoming construction projects and facility openings as of the fall of 2019. This timeline is subject to change.
