NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - Voters in the Noblesville school district will vote Tuesday on a referendum to get all 9th graders into the main high school campus.
For someone who owns a $200,000 home, Noblesville Schools say the referendum initially would cost that homeowner about $44 more a year in property taxes.
The freshmen would move from their campus to an expanded main high school campus. The freshman campus would also be expanded before the middle school students are moved there.
The middle school building will be vacant and sold to the county, which will then lease it to Ivy Tech Community College.

"Some folks are verey much focused on that tax issue and there's certainly going to be that impact on their taxes. However there are a lot of people who are excited by the possibilities that Ivy Tech brings to our community, both in terms of education for our current students and education for recent high school graduates. Education for returning students," Julia Kozicki, Secretary of the Noblesville Schools Board of Trustees told 24-Hour News 8.
"There is so many kids you can put in a classroom, so eventually we have to build new buildings, and this is how we do it." Kozicki said.
Voting is on Tuesday from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m. at regular polling locations.
