Twinsburg Schools Expected to Get $2.8M Boost in State Funding
State funding to Twinsburg is expected to increase 104 percent in 2014.
Twinsburg is one of the big winners in state funding over the next two years.
The district is expected to get nearly $5.5 million in 2014 from state funding, according to preliminary numbers from the Ohio Department of Education.
That is $2.8 million more than in 2013, when the district received $2.7 million, an increase of 104 percent.
In 2015 the state is expected to dish out $6.8 million to the district, another 25 percent boost, resulting in another $1.3 million.
These numbers are from Gov. John Kasich's budget proposal, and will likely change at least a little as the state legislature haggles out a final budget deal.
Twinsburg taxpayers just approved new levy dollars to fund the schools, with 54 percent of voters supporting the new tax dollars.
A 6.9-mill renewal levy, generating $4.4 million annually, is up for a vote in May.
