Licking Heights School District asking for new bond issue after student population doubled
Growing paints forced Licking Heights Local Schools to put a 4.99 mill bond issue on the ballot, school leaders say.
May 2nd, voters in the school district will be voting yes or no on the new funding.
The school district says since 2004 student population has more than doubled, forcing schools to have class in the hallways, auditorium, and storage areas. The money from the bond issue will fund the building of a new high school.
If the bond issue fails, the district says parents can expect no high school bussing, and pay-to-participate fees doubling.
