Senate Prep MBR Amendment to Allay Private Universities' Concerns with CCP Funding; Ohio 8 Requests Changes
Gongwer Ohio, Volume #83, Report #89, Article #3 - Thursday, May 8, 2014
The Ohio Senate Education Committee held a hearing on Mid-Biennial Budget Review (H.B. 487). Mary Ronan, Superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools, testified for the Ohio 8 Coalition. Superintendent Ronan recommended several changes to the bill.
"Ms. Ronan called for the removal of a proposal that would allow private and charter school students to participate in extracurricular activities at their district of residence. She said parents make the choice to put their child in a charter, the activities represent a cost to the district, and schools carry the liability for enrolled students but not for charter and private students."
