Gov. John Kasich’s proposed budget plan may hurt Ohio school districts

Newly released estimates show almost half of Ohio’s school districts would sustain cuts under Gov. John Kasich’s proposed budget plan. The district-level budget figures were released Friday by the state’s Office of Budget and Management. The Republican governor’s $66.9 billion, two-year operating budget calls for reducing guaranteed funding in any district with a population loss of 5 percent or more. This means Bryan City Schools would be the only district in Williams County to not see reduced funding for fiscal year 2018. Bryan would get a 5 percent increase in final core aid, which is an estimate based on average daily membership in 2017 and actual and projected property valuation.
