Clark County voters did not approve Issue 25 yesterday. The Developmental Disabilities Board there was seeking approval of a new, 1.75 million, eight year levy. WYSO's Wayne Baker reports that the issue failed by more than 1,100 votes.
According to unofficial results with 100 percent of the precincts reporting, Issue 25 failed by a count of 51 to 49 percent. More than 30,000 voters were against the measure and 29,000 voted to approve it.
Springfield City Schools have entered into a partnership with Clark State Community College, Wright State University and the Dayton Development Coalition to develop the state's first bioscience academy.
The academy will prepare students to compete for jobs in the agricultural science field.
