Starting with the Governor’s as-introduced budget, Innovation Ohio has consolidated and posted all district-by-district school funding figures released to date, including funds districts can expect to lose from stimulus money that will not be replaced. We provide this spreadsheet as a service to Ohio school officials and parents who deserve both transparency and a ‘one-stop shop’ where they can easily learn the true and total impact of the Administration’s proposed budget on their school districts.
While the Administration released the TPP and public utility tax figures, showing districts what they stand to lose, the numbers were broken down into four different spreadsheets. And they do not reveal the district-by-district impact resulting from the loss of federal stimulus funds. To eliminate great frustration, Innovation Ohio’s spreadsheet pulls all those figures together in one simple document. [Updated 5/18/11 – House Amendments to Governor’s proposal added; 6/2/11 – Senate substitute bill; 7/14/11 – Final, enacted legislation]
