"Win Win" Goes Before Dublin, Columbus School Boards

"Win Win" says students living in annexed areas of Columbus will still attend their suburban districts. In return, those districts send Columbus annual payments based on commercial growth. Those payments add up to about $5 million a year.

The Columbus and Dublin school boards on Monday both plan to discuss their roles in "Win Win," the decades-old agreement on Columbus-area school district boundaries 

Dublin board members are considering withdrawing from the deal that says students living in annexed areas of Columbus will still attend their suburban district in exchange for relatively small annual payments from those districts.

A state representative from Central Ohio is pushing a bill to do away with "Win Win" entirely.

Columbus is fighting to keep the agreement in place.

For more on whether "Win Win" is still a win-win for Columbus and the suburbs, WOSU's Steve Brown spoke with Jeff Rich, an attorney who advises districts on the agreement that he says has prevented border wars since 1986.
