Nordonia to see no gain from state education plan

Eric Marotta | Editor Published:

The state has released the data showing how much each district would receive in Gov. John Kasich’s school funding reform plan, and under the plan Nordonia Hills City Schools would see no increase in state funding in 2014 over the current school year.

Under the plan, Twinsburg City Schools would see its state funding more than double next year and Bedford and Solon city schools would each see their funding increase 25 percent. Other adjacent school districts, such as Hudson and Brecksville-Broadview Heights, would see no increases.

According to the data from the governor’s office released this afternoon, Feb. 6, Nordonia Hills state funding for the current school year and next will remain $3.578.

A breakdown of the money the district would receive in 2013-14:

•About $361,369 in “Core Opportunity Aid,” which is “ensures that every school district that levies 20 mills in property taxes … will generate the same as a district with a $250,000 per-pupil property tax base;”

•$617,682 for students with disabilities;

•$12,782 for English language learners;

•$169,565 for economically disadvantaged students; and

• $192,420 to help gifted and talented students excel.
