At Worthington Colleges, we all know remaining clear about our funds is essential to persevering with our mission of empowering a group of learners who will change the world.
Plenty of components have us preserving a detailed eye on our monetary future.
First, Worthington Colleges will see little affect to the quantity of state funding it receives as the results of the brand new state funding components, permitted as a part of the Ohio Common Meeting’s newest two-year funds invoice.

Third, our enrollment steadily is growing.
Fourth, we’re on the precipice of constructing a future that’s worthy of the scholars of Worthington.
For this reason Worthington Colleges is contemplating two points for the November poll.
The primary into account by the college board is a mixed bond situation and permanent-improvements levy. The bond situation would fund section 2 of our grasp amenities plan, which includes rebuilding Thomas Worthington Excessive Faculty and renovating Worthington Kilbourne Excessive Faculty. The PI levy would fund repairs and know-how updates in any respect different buildings, in addition to bus and car replacements and maintenance of district grounds, together with athletics fields.

Funds could also be used for constructing repairs or updates, heating and electrical energy, main gear purchases comparable to know-how or buses, and for the maintenance of district grounds, together with athletic fields. Everlasting enchancment funds might not be used for salaries or advantages for workers, basic provides or different gadgets that should not have an estimated life of 5 years or extra.
The second situation being thought-about for the November election cycle is an incremental working levy that may begin at 2.9 mills. The cash collected can be phased in so the district might acquire funding when it wants it.
We’ll maintain you apprised of any updates and can talk extra details about these two choices as they develop into out there.
As at all times, thanks to your assist in educating and getting ready tomorrow’s era for a profitable future.
