Support

Prior to the November 6, 2012 general election, the Dublin School Board unanimously passed an initial proposal that approved this levy to appear on the ballot. According to Superintendent David Axner, the proposed bond would upgrade technology, pay for buildings repairs, expand the Davis Middle School commons, and improve traffic flow at Riverside Elementary.[1]


Opposition

District voters previously rejected a 7.2-mill tax levy for operating expenses, and a $25 million bond issue in November 2011. For the November 2012 elections the school board rewrote the ballot to reduce the tax request[2].
