Ohio school board appeals territory transfer case involving Plain Local

The Repository – Canton |

Attorneys for the state Board of Education have appealed U.S. District Court Judge Michael H. Watson’s decision that declared the school territory transfer law – Ohio Revised Code 3311.242 – unconstitutional. The appeal will be heard in the 6th District Court of Appeals in Cincinnati.

Plain Local had sued the 19 state education board members and state Superintendent Paola DeMaria in their official capacities as part of its lawsuit to stop the Hills and Dales transfer because the transfer law puts the state superintendent in charge of its administration and enforcement.
