Billions of dollars are coming to Ohio schools – Make sure your local leaders know how that should be spent!
As part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) approved by Congress earlier this year, Ohio will receive nearly $4.5 billion for PreK-12 schools from the federal government. That law says educators and their unions have the right to weigh in on the plans to use that money in their local districts, and the Ohio Education Association wants to get you up to speed so you can most effectively engage with the superintendents and school boards in your area who will decide exactly what to do with your students’ share of the funding.
OEA is hosting 30-minute brown bag sessions for all members and OEA staff to make sure you have the information you need to know.
Stephen Dyer, OEA Director of Government Relations, Communications, and Marketing, will lead each session, covering what ARP is, what it means for Locals, and how to maximize member voice in the decision-making process. He will also dig into the opportunities to maintain ARP funding in the future and even build on it through the passage of the Fair School Funding Plan, which was recently included in the Ohio House budget and is now under consideration in the state Senate.
