About Us

ONE Olentangy is a collaborative effort of a group of Olentangy residents.  Our goal is to inform the community in a proactive way about local issues that affect our school district.  We believe there is a real need for accurate, fact-based information that affects us as parents, taxpayers, and community residents.

We are NOT associated with the district, although we hope that district officials will provide information to this site.  We welcome contributions from board members, district committee chairs, and other community members with informed perspectives on Olentangy issues.

We ARE determined to get the real story of district issues out there – from rumors about a fourth high school to the current spate of apartment buildings that are being developed to the never ending drama of board meetings.  We will give you relevant information and informed opinions, honestly.

There are so many ways to divide us - seven townships, four cities, three high schools, east side, west side.  But one thing unites us - we are ONE Olentangy.

ONE Olentangy is a nonprofit Ohio corporation, and has applied for tax-exemption under Section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code.

Contributions to ONE Olentangy are not tax deductible.

Notice to the media and other readers about content on this site

A tremendous amount of work and fact-checking is put into every ONE Olentangy article. Our goal is to understand and try to communicate the full picture about things happening in our community. We are serious about the content and facts that we publish. So serious, in fact, that we are willing to put our name and credibility on the line over what we publish.  ONE Olentangy has an editorial board of its own that provides a final review of each entry. That's how much we care about Olentangy and accuracy. Most entries are collaborative and therefore are attributed simply to ONE Olentangy. Certain guest articles that come from a specific, reputable source are identified as such in the byline.

ONE Olentangy invites reputable media outlets to use content from these articles as part of your research. If this site helps you in your research or as a quotation in an article, please use what you need. The content used, however, must reflect the spirit of what was written in the article.

All citation for our work, unless authorship is otherwise noted, is ONE Olentangy.
