Students across Northeast Ohio will see enhanced efforts to address their overall well-being over the next two years thanks to additional funding in the state’s recently approved biennial budget.

The funds are designed to help high-poverty rural districts support students’ needs, said Akron Public Schools Treasurer Ryan Pendleton. But several urban and suburban districts stand to benefit as well, with every district in the state seeing at least some additional money for what’s known as “wraparound services,” which address students’ nonacademic needs. Some districts also saw small amounts of additional money due to increasing enrollments.

Every district is receiving a slice of a $250 million pie for wraparound services from the state next year.

Akron, which last school year received about $160 million in total funding from the state, will receive $5 million more next year. The next year, that money will carry over, plus another $2 million. Read more here >>.
