Issue 5

After delaying an operating levy request for the past two years, the Upper Arlington Board of Education is returning to the ballot on November 8. Issue 5 is a 6.9 mill continuing levy that would fund daily operations and maintain current academic programming so that the district can continue providing the current quality of education for Upper Arlington's students.


For an Upper Arlington homeowner, the proposed 6.9-mill operating levy would add approximately $241.50 a year in property taxes per $100,000 of appraised home value as determined by the Franklin County auditor. For an Upper Arlington home with an auditor’s appraised home value of $400,000, the levy would add approximately $966 per year based on calendar year 2022 tax valuations. You can look up your appraised home value at www.franklincountyauditor.com

The role of the school district in an operating levy request is to provide factual information so that community members may make an informed decision on November 8. 

You can access the documents and links below for more information related to the November 8 operating levy request. The district will be adding to the frequently asked questions page as it hears from community members this fall. If you have questions, please contact [email protected].
