Ohio governor's school-funding totals released

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio school districts see varied adjustments to their state funding allotments under Gov. John Kasich's (KAY'-siks) newly proposed formula, but no district sees a cut.

That's according to district funding breakdowns released by the state Wednesday.

Estimated allotments for more than 600 districts across the state include adjustments to compensate for income variations, as well as add-ons for gifted education, special-needs students, English-language learners and other categories.

The documents indicate Columbus and Canton schools will see gains of about 14% in the fiscal year beginning July 1. Cincinnati schools get a boost of about 7%, while Akron's funding rises about 3%. Funding levels remain unchanged for Cleveland and Toledo.

The formula gives a handful of small districts more than double the funding.
