  1. How are schools funded in Ohio? • TAXES • Why: Because the constitution of Ohio says so. • Federal (Mayfield 4.6%, CLE 20%) • State (Mayfield 20%, CLE 55%) • Local Property Taxes (Mayfield 75.4%, CLE 25%) • Residential and Commercial

  2. Federal Money • Must be used to help fund federal mandates • Title 1, Title VI b, etc • Financially disadvantaged, Rural Ed. assistance • Federal assistance is based on need compared to other schools in your state • For most schools Federal money is very limited

  3. State Money • This is where it really starts to get messed up!!! • As of right now education is the last item budgeted in the state budget • Instead of asking “How much does it cost to provide a quality education?” and fund that… here’s what they do • The state totals up all their $, provides funds for everything they need, then what's ever left over gets divided among the school district to “fund” education • Right now that’s about $5500/ student • So according to the state it only cost $5500 to educate a kid

  4. State Funding Formula Local Tax Payer $5500 - State Money State Money Per Student ---------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------- ---------------------------------------------- Local Tax Payer SEL. CLE. May. District Prop. Value Per Student

  5. What about charter/ private schools? • Charter schools are private, usually for profit, and only accept who they want. • Their money comes directly from the local district (vouchers) on a per student basis to the tune of $5700/ student • That means your public tax dollars go to fund private businesses. • Mayfield: 48 kids (35 online) – $263,150 • http://media.cleveland.com/pdgraphics_impact/photo/06cgcharterjpg-b43079c8114ec247.jpg

  6. Local Prop. Taxes • Based on Millage • 1 mil = 1/10th of a % or 1/10th of .01$ • Only 35% of your property is taxable • Ex. Home valued at $200,000 only $70,000 is taxable • You would apply the millage rate to the taxable value • When millage is approved, (school levy) even though it is a percent that you vote on, the $ amount can not grow – HB920, in 1976 • This is why schools have to ask for more $ every couple of years!!!!!!

  7. So what does this mean???? • As schools expenses grow, school funding actually decreases. • I know it sounds jacked up, but that’s why its unconstitutional !!!! • The better the community is to live in, the more the local tax payer get screwed.
