Olentangy Schools Not Growing As Predicted, Questions Rise About Approved Bond Issue


UPDATED: Friday December 7, 2012 7:32 AM

A school bond issue approved by voters may not have been necessary.

Voters approved Olentangy School District’s bond issue in November. However, the district is not growing as much or as fast as originally predicted.

An area firm hired by the district predicts about 1,300 fewer students in a decade than originally thought, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

The finding means the district may not need to build a new elementary school, a school that voter approved building last year.

Officials said that the findings do not prove the lack of growth. The district plans to add 3,300 students over the next decade.
