Olentangy for Kids is a grassroots group of Olentangy residents dedicated to educating the community about upcoming school ballot issues. Our goal is to provide the voters of Olentangy with the facts surrounding the upcoming ballot issue so that they can make an informed decision at the polls. We are completely funded by private donations and rely on community support through our network of volunteers.
We hope you find this website helpful and informative!
If the March 19th ballot issue fails, the Facilities Committee projects that 5 elementaries may need trailers in the 2025-2026 school year, and 9 elementaries may need trailers in the 2026-2027 school year.
According to District leadership, class sizes will increase if the March 19th ballot issue fails
District leadership projects continuous, multiple redistrictings at all building levels to balance overflow if additional schools aren't built.
Even with the addition of Peachblow Crossing Elementary, the Facilities Committee is projecting that trailer classrooms may be needed at Glen Oak Elementary and Scioto Ridge Elementary starting this August.
“Olentangy is at an enrollment cliff creating an immediate need for more schools to maintain our educational quality.” - Todd R. Meyer, Superintendent
