Olentangy Schools' ballot issue vote has been extended to April 28th as an all-mail primary election. The tax increase will not be collected until 2021. Olentangy's single issue has three parts – an operating levy, a permanent improvement levy and a bond issue. The money raised from the passage of this issue will allow Olentangy to continue to provide the level of academic excellence and opportunities that our community values.
