Changes Proposed In School Funding

State fund­ing for Ohio’s two– and four-year col­leges would increase by 2 per­cent each year under Gov. John Kasich’s recently-released bien­nial bud­get pro­posal, but even so, accord­ing to the Cres­cent News, cost-savings will remain a focus at North­west State Com­mu­nity Col­lege as admin­is­tra­tors face new bud­get­ing chal­lenges.

Effec­tive last year, the state’s 23 com­mu­nity col­leges now earn their slice of state funds based on the num­ber of stu­dents com­plet­ing courses and grad­u­at­ing, rather than the num­ber of stu­dents enrolled. That is dif­fer­ent from the way ut used to be done, when the state paid schools for how many stu­dents they enrolled, not the num­ber of stu­dents who actu­ally com­pleted courses.
