The Bellbrook-Sugarcreek School Board unanimously approved a resolution that rejected the Ohio Fair School Funding Plan at their regular meeting on Thursday, December 10.
“While well intentioned, the bill does not address the additional state funding that would be required to prevent Ohio’s districts from being overly-reliant on property taxes which was a central determination in the DeRolph decision,” said Board member Kevin Price.
“Further, the plan would continue significant state funding disparities across Ohio’s districts. For example, if fully funded, the Fair School Funding Plan would provide the nearby Kettering School District with an additional $16,000,000 per year while Bellbrook-Sugarcreek would receive just $145,000.”
