Districts in the dark about state support

By John Published: October 15, 2010

The Plain Dealer has the rundown on NE Ohio districts on the ballot Nov. 2. The story includes some bullet point items that are affecting school finances throughout the state:

• The state tax on business inventory and fixtures is being phased out. That will cost Parma $6 million a year.
• Districts must find the money for new state mandates that don't come with state funding; full-day kindergarten, for example, will cost Parma $1.2 million a year.
• No one knows who the next governor will be or how he will manage to plug an $8 billion hole in the state budget when federal stimulus money runs out.
