League of Women Voters holding Oct. 11 forum on school funding
The Bay Village chapter of the League of Women Voters is holding a forum on school funding on Tuesday, Oct. 11, at 7:00 p.m. in the Bay Middle School library, 27725 Wolf Road. The purpose of this forum is to help voters understand how public education is funded in Ohio. The Ohio legislature and local communities share responsibility for this important endeavor.
The forum will provide an overview of Ohio's school funding system, the challenges of ensuring that all public schools have the financial resources to provide a high quality educaton to each student, current proposals to make that happen and implications for the taxpayers of Bay Village.
The panel of speakers includes: Susan Kaeser, education specialist with the League of Women Voters of Ohio; Matt Dolan, State Senator for District 24; Jim Betts, volunteer facilitator of the Ohio Fair Funding Plan; and Scot Prebles, Superintendent of the Bay School System. Audience Q&A will follow the presentations.
I am a 35 year resident of Bay Village and currrent Chair of the Bay Chapter of the League of Women Voters.
