Perkins Schools to drop state funding program

Alissa Widman Neese • Mar 28, 2013 at 5:57 PM

Perkins Schools will no longer use state funds to help construct a new building for junior high and high school students.

The school board plans to ditch the Ohio Schools Facilities Commission's "exceptional needs" program and will instead join its "expedited local partnership" program. 

The new program requires districts use only local funds to build, but credits them a percentage of their costs for use on a future project.

Board members will approve the switch at a 7 a.m. special meeting Friday.

The meeting will take place in the board room at 3714 Campbell St.
