Support Additional State Funding for Olentangy

The Ohio legislature is currently considering the biennium budget bill (HB 59).  When the bill was first proposed by Governor John Kasich, it included a new school-funding formula that would provide Olentangy its first substantial increase in state funding since 2005.  Since then the House has passed its own version of the legislation that would wipe out that proposed funding increase.  The Senate is now considering HB 59 and the differences between the two school-funding proposals.  The School Funding Action Committee (SFAC) encourages all Olentangy residents to reach out to our lawmakers and encourage them to support additional funding for our district.
