The totals roughly follow enrollment numbers, with smaller school districts of less than 1,000 students receiving $50,000 or less, all the way down to some small religious or charter schools with no busing receiving less than $1,000.
The money comes after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine last week announced a bipartisan agreement with legislative leaders on the funding breakdown.
“This financial support is crucial for our schools as they prepare to transition back to the classroom this fall,” said state Rep. Phil Plummer, who represents a large swath of northern Montgomery County.
MAY STORY: State cuts, CARES Act create fiscal winners, losers
This $100 million marks the latest of multiple ups and downs in school funding in the past few months.
• First, Ohio leaders cut K-12 schools’ state funding by $355 million in May and June because of coronavirus-related state budget woes.
• Second, the federal CARES Act provided $489 million to Ohio K-12 schools. But because the state cuts and the federal grants used different formulas, some impoverished districts like Dayton came out millions ahead in the exchange, while wealthy suburban districts including Beavercreek and Centerville were as much as $1.7 million behind.
• Third, in June, Ohio’s state legislature passed a bill restoring $23 million to those wealthier school districts — not making them whole, but providing them “offset payments,” including $889,000 in Beavercreek, $741,000 in Centerville $741,000, and smaller amounts in Springboro and Bellbrook.
All of those changes come as schools saved small amounts of money this spring on bus fuel, spring sports and a few other categories, but increased spending on computers, wifi hotspots and other unexpected needs.
