Gov. Kasich releases new school state funding numbers

Posted: Updated:

Governor Kasich released new state funding numbers late Wednesday afternoon, and the future looks bright for Springfield Local Schools.   The district is slated to get the biggest funding increase in Lucas County next year at 38 percent.

"We were pleasantly surprised when we received that late in the day today," says Superintendent Kathryn Hott.  "While I am very excited about what the possibility is of increased funding from the state, we just have to look and see how this is all going to roll out."

Not every district is seeing such big jumps.  Toledo, Bowling Green and Port Clinton don't look to receive any type of increased funding in the 2014 fiscal year.  Findlay will see a 20 percent hike, Oregon 25 and Wauseon a littler under 4 percent.

Superintendent Hott says it's unclear how the state calculated their numbers.  She be lives her district could be getting a boost because of a previous loss in tax money and unfunded mandates.

"There will be a lot of dialogue and a lot of conversation to see how this will all pan out."

State leaders say population changes and a shift in property values are two reasons behind the big funding gaps.  The Springfield schools leader knows nothing's finalized until this summer, but hopes it's a good sign for things to come.

"Revenue is going to be required in order to make good things continue to happen for Ohio kids.  So I'm hoping that it's going to happen not just for Springfield kids but for all public education in OH. We've got a good thing going on here."
