Update: 8/8/2023 - The Ohio Controlling Board met on August 7th to approve our Classroom Facilities Assistance Program project. This approval is the final step in the process of having State funds appropriated to co-fund the construction of our new Elementary School. With the current and projected revenue from PILOT (Payments in Lieu of Taxes) payments from the South Afton Industrial Park, the District anticipates being able to fund the local share of the cost of our new Elementary School without the need to ask the residents of the Williamsburg Local School District for a Bond Levy.
