Worthington schools are not included

"Worthington schools are not included"

In a history of the Win-Win agreement the Columbus Dispatch wrote "Worthington schools are not included"*

which says  "1986: Win-Win agreement signed between Columbus and 10 suburban districts: Canal Winchester, Dublin, Gahanna-Jefferson, Groveport Madison, Hamilton, Hilliard, New Albany-Plain, Reynoldsburg, South-Western and Westerville. Because of the 1968 agreement, Worthington schools are not included."

Worthington already had an agreement with the Columbus school district and the city of Columbus.  The Worthingon agreement goes back to 1968 and there was a land swap. The Budweiser brewery for neighborhoods south of the City of Worthington.

In 1992 the first time the Win-Win agreement renewed I had just moved to Central Ohio two years earlier.  As a home buyer I knew nothing of Win-Win.  We bought a home in Brookside Colony in the Dublin School District.  Brookside Colony is very close to the Worthington School District.  I remember the Worthington School Superindtent coming to a Greater Worthington real estate association meeting and telling us "Worthington schools are not included."

Perhaps my memory of 1992 is distorted.  I know I went on two listing appointments for people who were concerned our part of Dublin schools was going to become part of Columbus schools...  one man was a Dublin school teacher... he lived in Oakridge  Meadows, next neighborhood east, Smoky Row Manor is one of those where part of the subdivision is Dublin schools and part is Worthington.  The majoriity of Smoky Row Manor is in the Worthington City School District. 

When the school superintendent or school board president said in effect "Worthington schools are not included"  I thought... a half a mile east... if we'd bought a half a mile east. 

I don't foresee major changes to the Win Win agreement ever, but when Win-Win becomes news every six years,  remember Worthington schools are not included!
