Voters in the School District of Athens did not approve either of the District’s two referendum questions. The first question asked voters for permission to exceed the District’s revenue limits by $900,000 for 2022-23 and by $1.67 million each subsequent year. The money would have been used to pay for general operating expenses in light of the District’s significant budget shortfalls. The second question asked for permission to borrow $5.525 million to use for deferred maintenance and facility improvements.
The Board of Education will discuss the referendum outcomes at its next meeting.
All eligible district residents are encouraged to cast their vote today at the polls. Our District has two very important referendum questions on the ballot. Every vote counts!

REFERENDUM UPDATE: If approved, the referendum tax impact decreases due to additional state aid. Why? On October 15, our District was informed of additional state aid that results in a reduction to the property tax mill rate. As a result, the tax impact of an approved referendum has decreased for area taxpayers. Learn more on our referendum website: https://www.athens1.org/page/referendum
