Building Expenditures

History

  • 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 for Phase I. It was also decided to move one elementary school from the TWHS feeder pattern to WKHS to balance enrollment in those buildings. 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.
