Master Planning: Primary Schools

Facility upgrades at our primary schools would improve safety, security, and accessibility. Additionally, new or updated buildings will better support our mission to provide innovative, student-centered educational opportunities that foster the academic growth and personal development of every student in our primary schools.

Latest Update:

Board of Education takes first steps to approve ballot issue for new primary schools

At the June 7, 2024 meeting, the Wyoming City Schools Board of Education approved the Wyoming Primary Facilities Master Plan and the first round of resolutions required for a bond issue on the November 5, 2024, ballot. Thank you to the Wyoming City Schools Primary Facilities Steering Committee and the entire Wyoming community for their engagement in the planning process over the last three years.

The Wyoming Primary Facilities Master Plan includes: 

  • Three new K-4 school buildings on each of the current school sites.
  • Solutions to the limitations of our current buildings as prioritized by the Wyoming Primary Schools Facilities Committee.
  • Alignment with the community’s preferred direction as identified by statistically-representative survey.

The approval of the resolutions is the required first step to placing a $72.5 million bond issue before voters in November. The ballot issue is estimated to be for 7.98 mills, equaling $279.21 per $100K home value.*

* The community’s actual financial impact is projected to be 4.62 mills or $161.61 annually per $100K of home value. This is due to the proactive work that Wyoming City Schools has done to pay off the 1998 Wyoming High School Bond Issue debt early (reducing the millage paid by Wyoming homeowners by 3.36 mills at the end of 2024).

The $72.5 million project budget was recently adjusted due to revised information from the State of Ohio. On May 30th, the State of Ohio moved the debt limit from $68.4 million to $73.1 million.

Next Steps:

Final Resolution for BOE Approval - July 18, 2024: A Board of Education Special meeting on Thursday, July 18, 2024, for the Board to consider the final resolution required for a November 5, 2024, ballot issue.

Ballot Issue Certified by Board of Elections - Late July or Early August: Upon approval of the Resolution to Proceed on July 18 and subsequent certifications by the Hamilton County Auditor, the Ohio Department of Education and Workforce, and the Ohio Department of Taxation, the Board of Elections will certify the ballot issue.
