Pickerington Residents Decide Future for Pickerington Schools
On Tuesday, May 4, Pickerington residents will have their voices heard about the future for Pickerington Schools.The Board of Education placed a bond issue on the May 4 ballot to address critical issues in our facilities and address current overcrowding that is only projected to get worse as more home construction continues in our growing community.
If the issue passes, Pickerington Schools will begin preparations to build a new junior high school, add classrooms at both high schools, create dedicated preschool and Welcome Center spaces and put into motion renovations and security upgrades that increase safety, learning spaces and capacity.
If the issue fails, the district will need to divert money from the daily operating budget in order to pursue temporary options to accommodate enrollment growth. Delaying the facility work needed will not stop the growth we are experiencing and our facility needs will continue to become even more urgent and expensive as classrooms and buildings become more crowded.
Early voting is open now and more information about voting times and options is available at: www.VoteOhio.gov. Also, if you haven't already, make sure you check out the latest "Plugged In" districtwide e-newsletter at https://www.smore.com/h5qz1.
