Board of Education Millage Committee Meetings Postponed

The upcoming Millage Committee meetings that were scheduled for Monday, April 6, and 20, are being postponed.

In light of the extended stay-at-home order and statewide school closures, the Columbus Board of Education and District leadership have decided to delay these important discussions. This will allow more time to gather additional information about the short-and-long-term effects of the pandemic crisis while also focusing on stabilizing the operations of the District as we transition to a virtual learning organization.

The first of four 2020 Millage Committee meetings will convene virtually on Monday, April 27, beginning at 5:30 p.m. The meeting will be streamed live on the Columbus City Schools’ Facebook page and the District's YouTube channel. 

The new Millage Committee meeting dates are as follows (all meetings will be held from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m.) 

  • Monday, April 27
  • Monday, May 4
  • Monday, May 11
  • Monday, May 18

The Millage Committee will evaluate and discuss millage amounts for a potential operating levy, bond issue, and/or capital improvements levy. The committee will dissolve upon the completion and delivery of its recommendations to the Board of Education.

Co-Chairs for the committee are Phillip Calloway, Senior Financial Analyst, PUCO, and Community Member Jordan A. Miller, Jr., along with a broad-based group of 22 individuals representing our faith-based, business and nonprofit communities, as well as parents of students in the District.
