Solon Schools Expected to Get $1M Boost in State Funding

State funding to Solon is expected to increase 50 percent over the next two years.

Solon should see a decent boost in state funding over the next two years.

The district is expected to get nearly $2.2 million in 2014 from state funding, according to preliminary numbers from the Ohio Department of Education.

These numbers are from Gov. John Kasich's budget proposal, and will likely change at least a little as the state legislature haggles out a final budget deal.

According to the proposal, Solon stands to receive $440,000 more than in 2013, when the district received $1.8 million, an increase of 25 percent.

In 2015 the state is expected to dish out $2.75 million to the district, another 25 percent boost, resulting in another $550,000.

Then will Solon update their technology? Other districts have updated computers including Macs!

Macs would be a downgrade...anyone who has a real job uses a P.C. The schools would be doing the students a disservice by purchasing additional glorified toys. How about real books? Or put the money aside for a rainy day? That makes much more sense.
