UPDATE: Fairborn City Schools 1.7-mill bond issue passes

·1 min read

Voters in the Fairborn City School District were asked to approve a 1.7-mill bond issue for more funds for the new high school.

Ultimately voters chose to pass the issue.

Issue 6 is a 34-year proposal that will pay for finishing construction at the new school— bringing back projects that were cut because of rising costs.

School district officials said it will generate about $24.6 million, but not increase taxes because collection would begin in 2027 when an existing 2 mill bond expires.

The new school was originally estimated to cost $70 million, but because of inflation it’s now projected to cost $82 million.

According to the district, it is scheduled to open in August 2024.
