Some win, some break even in Gov’s school plan

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Central Ohio school districts are getting mixed results from Gov. John Kasich’s school funding plan.

Details of the proposal released yesterday show double-digit funding hikes to Columbus and nine other Franklin County districts, but funding was flat to four others: Bexley, Grandview Heights, Reynoldsburg and Upper Arlington.

The formula accounts for decreasing property values in some communities and increased population in others.

Elsewhere in central Ohio, the Olentangy Local Schools are seeing a 331 percent increase during the next fiscal year.

The Columbus City Schools will see its funding increase from $208.8 million this year to $237.9 in 2014 and $248.4 million in 2015.

State funding for the South Western City Schools increases $8.90 percent in 2014 and 4.5 percent in 2015 to $99 million.

Lancaster, Marysville and Delaware are among the other central Ohio districts which will see funding increases, according to the preliminary estimates.
