TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Gov. John Kasich has made his vision clearer on plans to distribute money to schools statewide. Those plans include a surge of money for several area districts, but no new money is headed to Toledo Public Schools.
Superintendent Dr. Jerome Pecko says last week while in Columbus, he left a meeting about what the budget could be for urban schools feeling optimistic. On Thursday, he says the feeling is now one of dissappointment, as districts around him will be cashing in, while TPS will get nothing new.
Districts all over the Buckeye State got their first glimpse at how the governor plans to disperse funding to districts across the state in 2014. A total of 10 districts in Wood and Lucas counties would get double-digit increases. TPS did not make the list for any changes.
"If what we're seeing is actually what we're going to have to work with, it's going to matter. It's going to make a difference in what we're able to offer with our students," explained Pecko.
As the budget currently stands, TPS will operate with no change, while districts in the suburbs get a boost.
"I think what's going on with this funding is related to some formula, and it's disappointing that we won't have an influx in dollars into Toledo Public Schools, and we celebrate what happens out in other areas," said Becky Spencer.
The district has been trying to manage on a tight budget lately. Requests for help from voters have been shot down twice, and now the extra help officials thought they would get from the state has fallen through.
Parents are left wanting to send a message to Columbus on behalf of the students to be affected in the Glass City.
"It is very, very important that the taxpayers - that we voice our opinion. Hoping that our opinion will be heard. To let the state know that we do need funding for our children," said Candice Harris.
The plan is not finalized yet. However, the Ohio School Board Association says a bill could hit the floor in Columbus as soon as next week.
