There is no increase to state funding for the district over the next two years.
The good news for Kent City Schools is it won't lose funding from the state over the next two years. The bad news is it won't get any more, either. The district is expected receive the same amount of state funding in 2014 and 2015, according to preliminary numbers from the Ohio Department of Education. In 2013 the district received $11.6 million from the state which will remain the same over the next two years if the state budget is approved as it is. The specific numbers for school funding in Gov. John Kasich's budget were released on Wednesday afternoon.
