Letter to the editor: ‘A critical component of a strong economy, community’


YOUR VIEW

To the editor:

I am writing in support of Olentangy Local Schools’ combined levies and bond issue on the March 15 ballot.

As executive director of the Ohio School Boards Association, I recognize that Olentangy is a high-performing school district. Having strong schools with sufficient resources is a critical component of a strong economy and community. As a parent and Olentangy community member, I believe it is essential for the community to invest in the future of education in order to stay competitive regionally and nationally.

One vote approves money for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade operations, a fourth high school and much-needed building and technology improvements. I urge residents of Olentangy to keep their schools and communities strong by voting “yes” on March 15.
