Ross voters approved a 6.25-mill bond issue that would provide $24.9 million toward the district's share of a $50 million facilities plan.
It included construction of a new high school, additions at the two elementary schools; improvements to all buildings and construction of a new elementary school if enrollment warrants it.
Annual taxes would increase $191 for 26 years on a $100,000 house with collections beginning in January.
Talawanda voters rejected a bond issue to pay for new schools.
The 2.55-mill bond issue would have provided $19.5 million, with most of the money going toward construction of a new school to replace Stewart Elementary. Other projects included adding six classrooms to the middle school and adding gymnasiums to two elementaries and the middle school.
The owner of a $100,000 house would have paid an additional $78 annually each of the next 27 years.
