Permanent Improvement Issue Approved
On May 8, 2018, voters approved Ohio Hi-Point's 0.6-mill permanent improvement levy. The issue was passed after a collective vote was counted from all 14 partner high school districts in the five counties Ohio Hi-Point serves.
The Board of Education, administration, staff, and students at Ohio Hi-Point want to thank voters for approving the permanent improvement issue. “This means we will be able to renovate and expand the learning spaces on our Bellefontaine Main Campus as well as update equipment, technology, and tools in our satellite programs,” said Superintendent Rick Smith, Ed.D. “I also want to thank the many volunteers that helped get information out to our communities about this important issue.”
Ohio Hi-Point provides students the opportunity to receive professional certifications and specialized credentials needed for the 21st century workforce as well as earn college credit for Ohio Hi-Point coursework, making higher education more affordable for today’s families.
“This issue was about offering a 21st century education for 21st century jobs,” noted Smith. “I’m excited that voters understood the value we provide to prepare students for in-demand jobs in our communities.”
