PERRYSBURG - Questions remain about how a new state plan to fund education will affect local schools, and administrators are cautiously awaiting further details.
Treasurer Matt Feasel said he attended a regional meeting Monday with Ohio Association of School Business Officials but left without the information he sought on how exactly Perrysburg's state funding would be calculated.
Superintendent Tom Hosler said Perrysburg is slated to receive a 6.25-percent increase in state contributions, as the district continues to grow. It's still unclear, however, whether that figure is calculated before or after other changes in the budget are applied, such as adjustments to funding for student transportation.
Board member Walter Edinger suggested the increase should be expressed in a dollars-per-student figure rather than a percentage, as the change is actually a small increase that doesn't come out to as much as the percentage may seem to be.
Hosler raised other questions during Monday's school board meeting about other possible changes, including kindergarten funding, vouchers and how school-day requirements are calculated.
Separately, Rick Ruffner presented the board with a $634 donation for the after-prom committee, which represents half of the proceeds from four car cruise-ins held this summer.
