lawmakers have approved a new 2-year budget plan, which earmarks more money for
education, compared to the current budget cycle.
new budget will pump more than $700 million in additional funding for K-12
education in Ohio.
to state aid estimates, every school district in Lucas County, with the
exception of Toledo Public Schools, is projected to receive a 6.25 percent
increase during the upcoming year, and a 10.5 increase the following year. For
TPS, the increases are projected at 6.25 percent, and then only 4.4 percent.
treasurer for Washington Local Schools says it's too early to tell if these increases
will offset funding decreases from the state over the previous two years.
Wood County, five districts are scheduled to get the maximum increases,
including Bowling Green, Lake, Northwood, Perrysburg and Rossford.
