This measure sought to issue a bond and levy a additional tax set at a rate of 3.92 mills for a further a period not to exceed 37 years in order to pay for school needs in the district.[2] The bond would have been in the amount of $9.75 million and if this had been approved the school board would have worked with the Ohio School Facilities Commission to build the new K-12 school building. The total cost of the project would have been $38 million with the Commission paying the bulk of the costs. The reason behind the new facility was that the current buildings are not up to standards as set by the Commission. Since this was not approved, then the buildings will still need repairs done and the Commission will not put any money towards that project.[3]
