The Ohio Senate today passed House Bill 167, which established new school levy requirements for the Columbus School District. Known as the “Columbus Plan,” this bill would also allow for the school to partner with and share revenue with authorized community schools.

The following statement may be attributed in whole or in part to Senator Kevin Bacon (R- Village of Minerva Park):

"Community schools provide an innovative way to continue to develop and grow Ohio's diverse workforce. This plan is meaningful to Columbus schools and the families and students that are a part of the Columbus community. This is a bipartisan plan that creates additional opportunity and potential for our young people by focusing on the health and development of the youth of central Ohio."
