Local Stories about the Worthington School District


Our two local papers, the Worthington News and This Week in Worthington, are the primary source of district news for the 70%+ of residents who do not have children in the district. This page will make it easier to look at the Worthington Schools related content of these papers. The Columbus Dispatch periodically covers our district as well, usually around levy time. In addition, the Worthington Public Library has the "This Week" archives available to cardholders.
