Valley schools to receive money under Kasich plan

Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Eighteen area school districts will receive more funding in 2014 through Gov. John Kasich's Achievement Everywhere plan.

In the plan, each school district levying 20 mills in property taxes will receive the same amount of money as a district with a $250,000 per-pupil property tax.

Another feature of the plan, provides additional funding for school districts with low-income residents that have average or above-average property tax values but do not approve high property tax levies.

Under the plan, no school will receive less funding than it did in 2013.

Schools are also eligible for additional funds for students with disabilities, English language learners, economically disadvantaged students, early childhood access and gifted and talented students.

The six schools in the Mahoning Valley receiving the highest amount of funds from the Achievement Everywhere plan are Warren City ($4,573,564), Youngstown City ($3,377,079), Austintown ($2,163,126), Niles ($1,530,464), Boardman ($1,424,612) and Girard ($1,209,242).

Also on the list: Bristol, Brookfield, Campbell, Columbiana, Howland, LaBrae, Lordstown, McDonald, Salem, Sebring, Struthers and Weathersfield.
