Search Nov. 5, 2013 school levy results for your school district and county.
Nearly two-thirds of school tax issues on the Nov. 5 ballot were approved by voters, according to unofficial election results.
Voters rejected most requests to increase taxes by approving new taxes or replacing existing levies.
But voters approved nearly all requests to renew existing tax levies.
That initial pattern is in line with results from recent off-year elections.
In Columbus, Ohio's largest school district, unofficial results showed voters rejecting a 9-mill levy. If it had passed, that levy would have sent a portion of local tax dollars directly to charter schools, making Columbus the second district in the state to share local property taxes with charters schools. Columbus voters also rejected the creation of a new independent auditor. A mayoral commission had recommended creating the independent auditor's position in response to the Columbus data-rigging scandal.
