November 2012 Ohio School Levy Results

There were 193 school questions on the ballot in November 2012, including school tax levies, income tax questions and bond questions.

Voters approved many school districts’ requests to renew existing taxes, but turned down many requests for additional funds.

Unofficial results show 54 percent of the 193 tax issues passing. The Ohio School Boards Association says that rate is consistent with the November 2011 levy passage rate of 51 percent.

About 86 percent of the 70 renewal levies passed. And 37 percent of the 123 new tax levies, those asking voters to approve additional funds, passed.
