Facilities updates and the future of Goshen Local Schools - November, 2019 bond issue

A 5.24 mills issue will generate $31,000,000, which will allow the district to update our master facilities plan for the future. Residents are currently paying on 2.0 mills, remaining from the 1999 bond issue. The 1999 bond issue will be paid off in December, 2019, three years early.  So, the November 2019 issue will include replacing those 2.0 mills and adding 3.24 mills, for a total of 5.24 mills.

Over the past year and a half, the Goshen Board of Education and district administration have been involved in a process to update our Master Facilities Plan. Our goal is to prepare for the growth of our community and create state of the art educational opportunities for our students.  

We are committed to being open and direct with the information our community needs, especially concerning our facilities and the use of taxpayer dollars. Goshen Local Schools enjoys a successful, supportive relationship with our community that spans decades. This partnership has fostered a tradition of excellence that enriches the lives of our students, their families, our staff, and the entire community.  To learn more about where we are now, our planning process, our dreams for the future, and our upcoming bond issue on November 5, 2019, please click on the link below:
