  • Westerville City School District (WCSD) officials worked with Columbus City Schools (CCS) officials over the summer of 2016 to develop an agreement that transitions the 30-year-old “Win-Win” agreement to a new agreement that better reflects current regional conditions.
  • Both parties jointly developed an agreement that stabilizes the boundaries of the WCSD while phasing out annual payments to CCS over the next five years.
    • A full payment will be made in the 2016-17 school year, followed by a 20 percent reduction each consecutive year: 100% in year one, 80% in year two, 60% in year three, 40% in year four, 20% in the final year five.
    • No payments will be made from WCSD to CCS after the fifth year.
    • No property is transferring from WCSD to CCS as part of this agreement.
    • There is no longer a need to revisit and/or reconsider the agreement every six years.
  • The CCS Board of Education voted on the agreement at its regular meeting on Tuesday, August 16, 2016; The WCSD Board of Education voted on the agreement during its regular meeting on August 22, 2016.
  • WCSD officials appreciate the work and foresight of CCS officials in structuring this new five-year agreement in order to secure current district boundary lines, which results in continued stability and predictability for families in our school district.
