Despite COVID-19 pandemic, Gahanna-Jefferson to ask voters for new high school

Columbus Dispatch |

The Gahanna-Jefferson school district hopes to receive enough “yes” votes on a three-pronged tax request on Nov. 3 to build a new high school, expand several other buildings and bolster its operating budget. Those leading a committee in support of Issue 22 say that waiting isn’t an option.

The total 10.69 mills sought would cost school district residents an additional $374 per year for every $100,000 in assessed property value.

It’s expected that 800 additional students will move into the district by 2025, and numbers will continue rising due to home construction in the area, according to an enrollment study.
