Issue 12 Results
After tallying votes from our three counties, Issue 12—the district's levy and bond issue—appears to have passed by a narrow margin of 229 votes, with 50.33% FOR and 49.67% against.
While we are still waiting on final counts from the Boards of Election in Franklin, Delaware, and Union Counties, we are optimistically sharing that the levy has been accepted!
We recognize the sacrifices that some have made to make this outcome possible. Words cannot express the gratitude that we feel to our community and taxpayers for passing Issue 12. We take the responsibility of stewarding public funds seriously, and we recognize that there are always opportunities for improvement. Our team will respond to our community’s confidence with intentionality as we implement the changes and improvements this revenue makes possible. Again, we appreciate your support and confidence.
While the passage of the levy is still "unofficial," please enjoy the following video message from Superintendent Dr. John Marschhausen. Together, we move forward to ensure that the Dublin City Schools continue to thrive and provide an exceptional education to the next generation.
