Master Facilities Plan - Phase 1 Information
As part of the district's Master Facilities Plan, a community-driven task force recommended the expansion of middle school buildings and a change in grade configuration to create 6th - 8th grade middle schools. Voters in the Worthington City School District approved a bond issue in November 2018 which will yield $89 million to ensure that we have the capacity in all of our schools to keep up with our district’s student growth. Half of the Issue 9 funds will be used to rebuild Perry and Worthingway middle schools, and to renovate Kilbourne and McCord middle schools for all 6th-grade through 8th-grade students. This page will provide updates in the redesign process.
The first two community meetings were held on January 30 and January 31st. You can watch the presentations of the current concepts for each of our middle school sites. Please keep in mind that these are just preliminary concepts and that we are still seeking community input. If you have any additional thoughts or suggestions, you can email them to our Director of Business Services, Jeff Eble at email@example.com. If you'd like to watch the entire January 30 meeting raw video, you can at this link.
